New Delhi, May 10 (MNN) Congress President Sonia Gandhi said on Monday that the party leaders should take note of the “serious setbacks” suffered by the party in the recent Assembly elections.

“To say that we are deeply disappointed is to make an understatement. I intend to set up a small group to look at every aspect that caused such reverses and report back very quickly.

“We need to candidly understand why in Kerala and Assam we failed to dislodge the incumbent governments, and why in West Bengal we drew a complete blank.

“These will yield uncomfortable lessons, but if we do not face up to the reality, if we do not look the facts in the face, we will not draw the right lessons,” she said while addressing a Congress Working Committee meeting.

The CWC meeting has been convened to discuss the results of the recent Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Assam, West Bengal and Union Territory of Puducherry.

She said that the CWC had on January 22 decided to complete the process to elect the Congress President by end-June.

“The election authority chairperson, Madhusudan Mistri has prepared a schedule. Venugopal will read it out to you after our discussion on Covid-19 and the election results,” she said.
