Following the Congress’s humiliating defeat in Delhi elections 2020 on February 11, PC Chacko resigned as the Congress in-charge for Delhi on Wednesday. Congress stuck to zero, whereas AAP marked a whopping victory with 62 seats and the remaining seats fell in favour of BJP.
An ex-MP, PC Chacko earlier blamed the late Sheila Dikshit for the decline of the Delhi Congress. He said, “The downfall of the Congress party started in 2013 when Sheila Ji was the Chief Minister. The emergence of a new party Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) took away the entire Congress vote bank. We could never get it back. It still remains with the AAP”.
To this Congress leader, Milind Deora replied via Twitter, “Unfortunate to see her [Sheila Dikshit] being blamed after her death. She dedicated her life to [the Congress] and the people of Delhi.”
Arvind Kejriwal will be sworn as the Chief Minister of Delhi on February 16 for the third time. Despite BJP’s massive campaigning, the party’s number remained in single digits whereas, Congress failed to play its role as a strong opposition and received a shameful loss in Delhi.
