New Delhi: Congress will hold its first review meeting Saturday to discuss its defeat in the Lok Sabha elections.
The 2019 Lok Sabha election was a set of a bitter sweet contest for Congress chief Rahul Gandhi. He lost his family bastion, Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi, to firebrand Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Smriti Irani, but won by a huge margin from Kerala’s Wayanad.
The party lost at places where it had gained a few months ago — the Hindi heartland states of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. In the recently concluded election, the BJP has sweeped 24 seats in Rajasthan, nine in Chhattisgarh and 28 in Madhya Pradesh.
