“Congress fought a lonely battle against BJP, ED, CBI”
The struggle of Congress in the assembly elections in the five states was not only against the BJP but also against the central agencies like the Law Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the CBI, Rajani Patil said , party MP and charge of Jammu and Kashmir affairs, here on Saturday.
“The fight was not only against the BJP, it was also against the ED, the CBI and other agencies. We fought alone with all of them. Priyanka Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi fought bravely. We are all ready to take responsibility for the defeat. We will look for the reasons and prepare again,” Patil told reporters here.
She said the party called a meeting of its central working committee to discuss the party’s performance in the five-state elections. Asked about the meeting of the “G-23” leaders, the congressman said: “they are also members of the CWC, so issues can be discussed there”. Asked about reported infighting in the party’s JK unit with a group led by Ghulam Nabi Azad, Patil said the party was united.
“Each state has its own problems. Azad said he wouldn’t go in that direction (half way). We have arguments, but we are together in this fight,” she said. She said the party was ready for the polls in JK, but “wants statehood to be announced first, then the polls.”
