New Delhi, February 11
The Congress on Tuesday accepted defeat in the Delhi Assembly polls and vowed to rebuild and revive itself at the grassroots level in the national capital.
It said the poll results also had a message for the BJP that the “most toxic campaign” unleashed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah had been defeated.
“People’s mandate is against us, we accept it. We have resolved to revive and rebuild the party,” Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said at a press conference.
Delhi Congress chief Subhash Chopra said, “Attempts to polarise were made by both parties (BJP and AAP) and they were successful to an extent.”
However, he added that the results also showed that the people of Delhi were not with the communal forces.
