Ashok Gehlot slams Kapil Sibal for 'hurting sentiments of Congress' after Bihar debacle

New Delhi/IBNS: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday rebutted senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal's open criticism of the party leadership after the Bihar debacle.

In a series of tweets, Gehlot said: "There was no need for Mr Kapil Sibal to mentioned our internal issue in Media, this has hurt the sentiments of party workers across the country."

He said Congress has seen various crises including 1969, 1977, 1989 and later in the 1996  - "but every-time we came out stronger due to our ideology, programs, policies and firm belief in party leadership."

The Rajasthan CM mentioned that every crisis has improved the party under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi.

"We have improved with each and every crisis and also formed UPA government in 2004 under the able leadership of Soniaji, we shall overcome this time too," said Gehlot.

"There are various reasons for Electoral loses. But each time rank and file of the Congress Party has shown undivided and firm belief in the party leadership and that is why we came out of it stronger and united after every crises," gehlot stated.

"Even today, Congress is the only party which can keep this Nation united and take it forward on the path of comprehensive development," he added.

In last week's Bihar election results, the opposition won 110 seats, which fell a dozen short of the majority mark in the 243-member assembly.

Tejashwi Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) emerged as the largest party but the Congress, which contested 70 seats could only win 19 and has been criticised as responsible for the loss of the opposition.
