DTN News: INDIAN ELECTION 2014: Dynasty Politics in India - What Went Wrong With Rahul Gandhi
(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - May 2, 2014: Rahul Gandhi appears poised to preside over the most devastating defeat in the history of the Congress party, which has governed India for much of the past six decades.
Communist Party of India (CPI) leader Gurudas Dasgupta on Friday claimed that Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's reported preference to sit in the opposition rather than having a deal with the Third Front to form a government to prevent the BJP from doing so, is a clear indication that he has already accepted defeat in the 2014 general elections.
"It seems Rahul Gandhi has taken for granted that they are going to be defeated in these elections. It is out of a sense of defeatism and frustration that he might have said it. He is quite entitled to say what he has said. Whether Third Front will seek support from the Congress or vice-versa, is a remote question which is not to be discussed at the moment. The point is if Congress sits in the opposition is welcome, but it only speaks that how bitterly the Congress has alienated the masses and the sense of defeat has already creeped within the party," Dasgupta said.
