The Congress party on Friday said it is useless and baseless for people to always blame vice-president Rahul Gandhi and claimed that Rita Bahuguna Joshi’s decision to switch her allegiance from the Congress to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was expected. “When her father and brother left, it did not have any adverse affect on the party, so I don’t think her exit will now have any sort of effect. It doesn’t bother us at all. I think she should have taken her decision sooner,” Congress MP Sanjay Singh told ANI.

On Thursday, Rita Joshi had blamed Rahul Gandhi and Congress’ poll strategist Prashant Kishor for her exit. “Prashant Kishor could be a poll manager, but he certainly is not the poll director. But, unfortunately, the entire direction and leadership of the election has been given into his hands. How long we have to walk, when we will stand and sit, all these things were told to us a day before, despite the fact that leaders are grassroot workers. Nothing could be more unfortunate than handing over the party on contract (to Prashant Kishor),” she said, adding that even senior leaders of the Congress are unable to put across their point in the party.”

      Sir, he is not capable. His sister is capable like Smt. Indira hi. That's all and close the chapter. Senior congress politicians, who are properly qualified and experienced are there. So, on what basis appointed him as Congress V.P. Give straight answer.

        BJP should stop accepting the thrash that comes out from the Congress or else in some time, the small difference that existsnow between BJP and Congress will be wiped out.
