Congress debacle in MCD polls brings to fore their internal differences


Everyone, including the Congress leadership, was absolute sure of the inevitable Congress defeat in the recently concluded Delhi Municipal Corporation (MCD) elections. Having administered the capital city for the last nine years – a modicum of anti-incumbency was expected to work against the Congress party. But, the party’s complete rout in the elections has surely sent shivers down the leadership spine. Worse, it has triggered a witch hunting in the party. Reveals Congress Councillor, Jitender Kochar, while speaking to B&E, "Some problem with the ticket distribution led us to defeat.” Other leaders blame it on inflation, price rise and mishandling the sealing & demolition drive in the capital.
