Pathan also said that Azad should take some inspiration from B.K. Hariprasad and vacate his post.

Post the humiliating defeat of SP-Congress alliance in the recent Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, the hidden conflict within the Congress took a new turn on Thursday after a party leader from UP Naseeb Pathan put the charge for the bad show in the state on senior party leader Ghulam Nabi Azad and demanded the former to resign from his post.

“Ghulam Nabi Azab misled the Congress Party. He is responsible for the loss in the assembly elections and should resign from his post. He has humiliated the Congress workers. Local leaders were ignored by him. There was no need for an alliance, this decision was wrong. I conveyed this to the leadership, ” Pathan told ANI.

“Twenty Samajwadi Party leaders were contesting the elections from Congress Party’s seat. What kind of alliance was this? If we would have contested elections on all the 403 legislative seats of Uttar Pradesh, we would have been there in opposition,” Pathan added.

Pathan also said that Azad should take some inspiration from B.K. Hariprasad and vacate his post.

      boy this is aftermath. When these two formed alliance they thought very highly of it and they will come out winners with two youth leaders at the helm but that was not to be.Turned out to be complete disaster.

            Ultimately it's Rahul's fault. As Mr Pathan said what kind of an alliance is this in UP with Congress having 1/4 or less of the seats. Win or lose, the Congress must be a presence throughout UP as it is the central state. It is pointless to take shortcuts with caste-based parties. In the end the Congress gets blamed for the non-performance and corruption of its allies in the states.
