Congress is completely demoralised: Arun Jaitley

New Delhi, Dec 5 : Attacking the Congress and the Gandhi family, BJP leader Arun Jaitley Thursday said the ruling party is "completely demoralised" and a dynasty's charisma is never long-enduring.

"The Congress appears to be completely demoralised. In the last phase of the elections, the Congress leaders almost abandoned the election campaign for Delhi assembly," Jaitley said in a post on Facebook.

Targeting the Gandhi family, he said that "the relevance of charisma of a dynasty is never a long term answer in politics".

"When the political parties become a crowd around a family, the strength of the party becomes synonymous with the capacity of that family."

"I will not be surprised, considering the traditional thinking of the Congress, if their solution to the problem is if one member of the family fails, let us try another," he added.

Results for assembly elections for Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, and Delhi are to be announced Sunday (Dec 8). Result for Mizoram will be announced Monday.
