A day after it was blanked in the Delhi Assembly elections with its lowest vote share ever, a row erupted in the Congress after AICC Delhi in-charge P C Chacko sought to blame the late Sheila Dikshit for the start of the decline in the party’s fortunes. He also said “any sensible person would have anticipated the defeat of the Congress in Delhi”.

Latika Dikshit, daughter of the former Chief Minister who ruled Delhi for 15 years and in whose name the Congress sought votes this election, struck back, saying “Mr Chacko should be answering this… how his conscience allows him to say things like this for a person who has passed away”.

“With due respect sir, just want to know- has Congress outsourced the task of defeating BJP to state parties? If not, then why r we gloating over AAP victory rather than being concerned abt our drubbing? And if ‘yes’, then we (PCCs) might as well close shop!,” Mukherjee said in a tweet, responding to Chidambaram.
