We will review poll rout in Hisar: Congress
After witnessing major blow in Hisar by- election ,Congress said that they will review the situation that led to Congress defeat.
Though majority of Congressmen were in a self denial mood Pranab Mukerjee was the lone senior Congressman who said that the defeat calls for introspection.
Admitting defeat in Hisar by election ,Congress Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said "Hissar by-poll result is very sad news and party will review poll rout'.
Others such as Jagdambika Pal ,Digvijay Singh and even Salman Khursheed have pohpoohed the results.
Jagdambika Pal said that " Hisar being a traditional bastion of Bhajan Lal family his son Kuldeep was sure to win the seat. I'm not surprised".
Salman Khursheed echoed the statement of Mr Pal and said that winning and losing are games of election and much should not be made out of it.
Digvijay Singh, the ever talkative Congress general secretary had conceded defeat on Sunday only when he said that Congress has never won from Hisar. "Anna factor is not proved as the seat has traditionally belonged to Bhajan Lal camp", he added.
As to why does Congress fight election when it knows it cannot win; remains to be answered by Digvijay.
