Stating that everyone was responsible for the Congress defeat, he said the party would go forward unitedly and rectification would be carried out wherever necessary.

He also said that there would not be any reconsideration in the UDF’s liquor policy.

The two-day camp also witnessed leaders criticizing the leadership for the poll debacle.
