Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Shivanand Tiwari on Sunday blamed the Congress for dragging down the Mahagathbandhan in the Bihar Assembly elections, ANI reported. Tiwari referred to the Congress as a “shackle” for the alliance and said that party leader Rahul Gandhi was “having a picnic” while the elections were on.

Tiwari said that the Congress did not campaign as actively as it should have. “They had fielded 70 candidates but didn’t hold even 70 public rallies,” the RJD leader told ANI. “Rahul Gandhi came for three days, Priyanka [Gandhi Vadra] didn’t come, those who were unfamiliar with Bihar came here. This is not right.”

The RJD leader went on to criticise Gandhi. “Elections were in full swing here and Rahul Gandhi was having a picnic at Priyankaji’s house in Shimla,” he said. “Is the party run like that? Allegations can be levelled that the manner in which Congress party is being run, it is benefitting BJP.”

Tiwari added that the Congress focused more on the number of seats, rather than winning them. “Congress lays more emphasis on contesting on the maximum possible number of seats but they fail at winning the maximum possible number of seats,” he told the news agency. “Congress should think about this.”
