I concur with @ManishTewari & @milinddeora. UPA’s transformative ten yrs had been distorted & traduced by a determined & malicious narrative. There is a lot to learn from our defeats & a lot to be done to revive @INCIndia. But not by taking part in into the fingers of our ideological enemies. https://t.co/Ui6WUlBl3F

Could he have at any time imagined that some from his possess bash would dismiss his yrs of assistance to the country & seek out to destroy his legacy – that, far too, in his existence? https://t.co/HQyihXkFvk

BJP was out of Energy for 10 yrs 2004-14. Not when did they ever blame Vajpayee or his Govt for their then predicaments
In @INCIndia unfortunatly some ill -informed ‘s would somewhat take swipes at Dr. Manmohan Singh led UPA govt than fight NDA/BJP.
When unity reqd they divide.

Anand Sharma posted an 11-tweet thread listing the achievements of the 10-yr Congress rule and how it had fallen “victim of a grand political conspiracy and malicious disinformation marketing campaign of the BJP, political opponents and highly effective vested passions”.
Congressmen will have to be happy of UPA’s legacy. No celebration disowns or discredits it can be legacy. No one expects the BJP to be charitable and give us credit history but our very own ought to respect and not forget about. (11/11)

Sparring concerning the previous Union Ministers who were part of the Manmohan Singh govt and leaders determined as members of Rahul Gandhi’s staff at the assembly termed by social gathering chief Sonia Gandhi on Thursday experienced when once more highlighted the rift within the Congress because it misplaced power to the BJP in 2014.

Rahul Gandhi stop the Congress best publish right after the party’s nationwide election debacle very last yr, the 2nd in a row. His mother Sonia Gandhi took about as interim main until eventually the bash settled on a new president. In excess of a year later, that has not adjusted.
The clash reportedly started with the veteran Congress Rajya Sabha customers flagging their worry about the party’s failure to capitalize on subject areas that seem to be to have hobbled Key Minister Narendra Modi’s authorities this 12 months, together with the economic slowdown, the coronavirus reaction and the dispute with China.
The senior leaders reportedly assessed the Congress’s offensive as far too weak and disorganised to dent PM Modi’s help. They suggested that there must be more introspection and consultation and questioned the lack of dialogue, discussion and session.
Supplied that Rahul Gandhi has led that offensive, with videos and day by day tweets, younger MPs objected. Rajiv Satav, 45, reportedly cut in that a “finish introspection” was needed, correct from the Congress’s 2014 defeat.
