  • Rahul Gandhi's India

As he led his party's top decision-making body's meeting for the first time, Rahul Gandhi was flanked by his mother Sonia Gandhi and former prime minister Manmohan Singh.

The Congress will analyse in detail why it failed to dislodge the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which has ruled Gujarat for 22 long years, and the road ahead. On the 2G verdict, he said, "I think 2G has been a vindication (of our party's stand).Everyone knows about 2G and the truth has come before all of you".

Congress Working Committee members said on Friday that "struggle for people" will be the way forward for the party and urged President Rahul Gandhi to prepare a comprehensive strategy in view of the coming electoral battles.

"BJP's entire foundation is on lies".

He further asked should Narendra Modi, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and the BJP leadership not be held accountable for "selling lies and false allegations qua a "scam and corruption" where none existed as proved by the CBI court?".

"In the Gujarat assembly elections, ninety per cent of the people fought together and made efforts with the Congress in the election, but 5-10 per cent didn't help the party".

"During Gujarat elections, it seemed like the Congress leaders and the BJP leaders were not campaigning for elections but were trying to visit the maximum number of temples".

The alleged scam relates to the granting of 2G spectrum licence allocations in 2007-08, which caused, according to a report by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India, a loss of Rs 1.76 lakh crore to the public exchequer. Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari hit out at former comptroller and auditor general (CAG) Vinod Rai, alleging that all the other CAG reports during his tenure were "figments of imagination", which were specifically created to vitiate the atmosphere. "The party will be taking action against them", he said.

"I have declared unconditional support to BJP", Rathod told reporters here.
