NEW DELHI: The Congress’s elec­toral de­feat in four states led to ur­gent in­tro­spec­tion in the party and a work­ing com­mit­tee meet­ing would be an­nounced soon to ad­dress the fac­tors be­hind the de­ba­cle, sources said on Fri­day.

This came amid rum­bling in the prin­ci­pal Op­po­si­tion party over the poll re­sults, with se­nior leader Digvi­jaya Singh sug­gest­ing the time for in­tro­spec­tion was over and “surgery” was the need of the hour. Congress sources in­di­cated a much-an­tic­i­pated or­gan­i­sa­tional reshuf­fle would take place shortly.

Singh told HT that “ac­count­abil­ity” had to be fixed and func­tion­ing of the party “re­viewed” in view of the elec­toral downslide. He sug­gested the Congress have a “margdar­shak man­dal” along the lines of that in the BJP.
