Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Former MP Priya Dutt today said the party suffers from an "auto immune disease" and that everyone within it should try to rebuild the organisation.

"We need to put our heads together and rebuild the party. It's not about one person. This party has not been about one person. It has been about a collective," she told reporters here in the backdrop of assembly in five states.

Dutt also tweeted that "has shown repeatedly that it suffers from an auto immune disease."

"destroys Congress. We need to be treated from within to be healthy again," she said.

While Congress lost badly in and polls, it won with a thumping majority. Also, it emerged as the single largest party in and but the BJP, which finished as the runners-up in both these states--has staked claim to form the governments there after cobbling up the magic numbers.
