Congress candidates consider over loss, say Modi wave did them in

A day after the Congress was pushed to a distant second in the national capital, most candidates said they do not consider the results a “personal failure”, rather it was the “ Narendra Modi wave” that spoiled their chances.

Delhi Congress chief and former chief minister Sheila Dikshit said the party’s defeat was disappointing but individual candidates could not be blamed as the results were majorly affected by the larger results of the country.

“There was definitely a wave and Delhi’s results were affected by the scenario in the country. That does not mean that we are reflecting on our performance,” Dikshit, who was the Congress’s candidate from North East Delhi, said. She lost to BJP’s sitting MP and state unit president Manoj Tiwari by 3,66,102 votes.
