Finally, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi, who had gone under the blanket following the ‘humiliating’ performance in the just concluded assembly elections, appeared before the media and has asserted that his party has accepted defeat. During the interaction, he said that “you do have ups and down in polls.”
Rahul, who joined hands with Samajwadi Party’s Akhilesh Yadav for Uttar Pradesh polls, said, “Our fight is against BJP’s ideology, and we will continue to do that.”
“We are in Opposition, you have ups and downs and we had a little down in UP; we accept it,” Rahul Gandhi told the media in New Delhi.
Reacting to the latest developments in Goa and Manipur, where BJP has stake claim to form the government, Rahul said: “BJP used money power and has stolen the mandate.” He further asserted that Congress did need to make some organisational changes within the party.
Now, let’s have a look at how Twitterati has reacted to Rahul Gandhi’ appearance three days after the poll results and his statements:
