On the other hand, the Rahul Gandhi-led party improved its performance and its vote share increased from 38.9 per cent (2012) to 41.4 per cent.

The attack from party spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao came after Gandhi fired a fresh salvo at the saffron party, saying if the BJP had a film franchise it would be called "Lie Hard". "I think 2G has been vindication (of Congress' stand)", Rahul Gandhi told reporters when asked about the special CBI court's Thursday verdict acquitting all the accused.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday congratulated his party workers for giving a tough fight to the BJP in the recently concluded assembly elections in Gujarat.

"The entire foundation of the BJP is based on lies".


Rahul Gandhi also hinted that there are certain people within the Congress who were working against the party during the Gujarat assembly elections and promised that action will be taken against them. "And, every two months automatically, the working committee meets so that we can hear what you want to say and what the nation is feeling", he told the CWC members. "Across the country, they are questioning Mr Modi on the economy, they're questioning Mr Modi when he insults our ex- prime minister". He had alleged that whether it was Mr Modi's poll promise of putting "15 lakh each in peoples" bank accounts, the 2G spectrum case or Mr Modi's development model, "one by one the lies are coming out".

The party lost power in Himachal Pradesh too. The truth is, however, out in the open that BJP made a profession out of its conspiracy of lies and falsehoods to gain power at any cost. "The BJP, particularly Narendra Modi, Arun Jaitley and their stooge, Vinod Rai created a "fallacious web of allegations of corruption". "Now they should not blame us", he said.

The alleged scam relates to the granting of 2G spectrum licences in 2007-08, which caused, according to a report by the then Comptroller and Auditor General of India, a loss of Rs 1.76 lakh crore to the public exchequer.
