A day after exit polls predicted a drubbing for the Congress in the Lok Sabha polls, senior Congress leader and Union Minister Jairam Ramesh rose to the defence of party vice-president Rahul Gandhi, terming him an “indefatigable” campaigner.
“He must have addressed over 125 rallies in every nook and corner of the country. He brought spirit into our campaign and took on not just BJP and Narendra Modi but also articulated what our party stood for,” Ramesh said.
He dismissed Monday’s exit polls and said they would be proved “wrong” like in 2004 and 2009.
Ramesh said the BJP and Modi had “outfunded” the Congress, with their spending reaching an “obscene level”and called for a “serious expenditure audit”.
He also lashed out at BJP for a “communal” campaign.
