"Narendra Modi and the BJP on their victory in Uttar Pradesh & Uttarakhand", Rahul said in a statement.

The party's decimation in Uttar Pradesh - the country's most populous and electorally significant state - has serious implications for the party's ambition to emerge as a credible alternative to the BJP in the 2019 general elections.

Criticising Demonetisation: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's move to demonetise old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes may have caused great amount of inconvenience, however, one thing it did to the Prime Minister's image was that it re-established him as a leader who could take tough decisions with the larger interest of the nation in mind.

The Congress has won Punjab, on the other hand, and is ahead by four seats in Goa, though it will need the support of independents to form the government in the coastal state.

Everton Bash West Brom As Bournemouth, Hull Win
Tony Pulis felt the timing of Everton's first two goals killed the game for West Brom after their 3-0 defeat at Goodison Park. Lukaku finally got his name on the score sheet heading in Ross Barkley's cross from close range in the 83rd minute.

The discomfort of a section of party leaders has been evident since talks of alliance began. Many in the party feel the leadership is in a flux amid continued uncertainty over his elevation, which means any organizational revamp will have to wait. He also blamed the senior party members and said that senior in the party sabotaged Congress. Dikshit added that after polls debacle, there was dissent within the party. Hoping that the upcoming government will work better than the Samajwadi Party government, Akhilesh Yadav said,"In the last five years, we have worked for the development of Uttar Pradesh". He said the Congress could be in a "very bad situation", if it did not introspect more openly this time.

However, political parties in Uttar Pradesh failed to sense the reality and kept criticisig the Prime Minister's move. It seems the voters turn on the Congress in places where Rahul spearheads the party's poll campaign.

Congress party's youth leader, Rahul Gandhi, decided to make the first move.
