Congress will bounce back to power, says Digvijay Singh

Press Trust of India  |  Bhopal 

The Congress, which suffered a debilitating defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, will bounce back to power, party veteran Digvijay Singh said on Tuesday.

The former Madhya Pradesh chief minister said India's oldest political party has been written off many times in the past, but it has always proved naysayers wrong.

"Many a time, people have written off the Congress. But we always bounced back, he told reporters when asked about the future of the main opposition party.

Referring to the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh late last year, he said nobody had expected the Congress to form its government in the state, but it did.

"We bounced back," he said, referring to the Congress poll win in his home state after a gap of 15 years.

The Congress, then headed by Rahul Gandhi, had won just 52 seats in the April-May Lok Sabha polls, merely eight more than its 2014 tally.
