Do not blame Rahul Gandhi for the Congress reverses in the Assembly polls, Union Minister Jayanthi Natarajan suggested today maintaining that it was a "collective failure" and the party will introspect.
"Congress is not a one man show. ...It is a collective defeat and collective failure," the Congress leader said dismissing suggestions that the Congress Vice President was to be blamed for the poor show.
"We will introspect on our losses, we will see where we have gone wrong and I am very sure as happened in 1998-99 when we won state elections and lost the Lok Sabha...As happened in 2003 when BJP actually won the Assembly polls and lost the Lok Sabha," she said.
Natarajan's comments came as BJP is heading for landslide victory in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, while wresting power in Delhi.
A thriller is on the cards in Chhattisgarh with BJP and Congress ahead in equal number of seats.
