To­tal Washout

The Congress party’s mis­er­able per­for­mance in the re­cent by-elec­tions in Haryana, Andhra Pradesh, Bi­har and Ma­ha­rash­tra can­not be at­trib­uted solely to the Anna fac­tor (“In­her­i­tance of Loss”, Oc­to­ber 31). The neg­a­tive sen­ti­ment against the scam-tainted UPA was so pro­nounced and pro­found that vot­ers did not have to think twice be­fore de­cid­ing not to vote for the Congress party.

K. V. RAGHU­RAM, Wayanad The drub­bing handed out to the Congress in the re­cent by-elec­tions is a clear in­di­ca­tion of the grand old party slowly los­ing ground even in the states which were once be­lieved to be its strongholds. How­ever, one can also not deny that Team Anna’s anti-cor­rup­tion cam­paign in Hisar did have an im­pact upon the vot­ers.
