In rural Gujarat, Congress got more seats, BJP more votes

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray

"It was thought that the Congress will not be able to fight the BJP in Gujarat.You saw the results and it has dealt a zabardast jhatka (a massive jolt) to the BJP in Gujarat", Rahul said speaking to the media outside Parliament.

"The whole architecture of the BJP is about lying", he said. "Everyone knows about 2G, the truth is out in front of you", Gandhi told reporters.

Earlier, in his opening remarks in the meeting, Gandhi said the 2G case was "possibly the biggest instrument used against our government" which ultimately turned out to be "fake". And the good news that I can see is that people are now beginning to question it. The country has to think why is Modi silent.

He said he found that Modi has handed over Gujarat to a "few vested interests and he has taken tremendous benefits from Gujarat but Gujarat hasn't received anything in return". The party will also discuss its future strategy after the Gujarat elections, where it managed to restrict BJP to 99 seats.

Iced Tea Company's Stock Soars 500% After Name Change
Bitcoin's value skyrocketed well over 1,000 percent ahead of this month's debut of futures trading on a major market. The company could not be reached at this time and so far we have not heard back from the SEC for comment.

The Congress also claimed that BJP leaders like Sushma Swaraj and Mr. Jaitley as Opposition leaders wasted ₹750 crore of tax payers' money by disrupting 500 hours of Parliament over a period of three years for what it now calls "self-manufactured" scam. "Now they should not blame us", he said.

The party has to prepare to face the challenge of the next round of assembly polls in 2018 - first in Karnataka and later in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh - that will be crucial for Gandhi and the party ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in 2019.

The meeting is being attended by former party chief Sonia Gandhi and other members of the party's highest decision-making body.
