India’s political scene is full of surprises and never disappoints you. In a latest shocking news, a Congress leader from Balia district has announced a reward of Rs 5 lakh for the person who could find Prashant Kishor. He made this announcement by putting up a poster outside the party office and asked people to bring Kishor in front of party workers. Congress Uttar Pradesh President Raj Babbar was furious to see the poster and immediately asked his party workers to remove it. He mentioned that party will hold a two-day post-poll review with all candidates to find real reasons behind the loss as it isn’t fair to blame anyone for poll results.

According to the Indian Express, Rajesh Singh who is a secretary in Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee claimed to have put up the poster and believes that party members needed an answer this time. “For the last one year, we have been made to work like fools… without asking any questions. We were told to work as he (Kishor) wanted us to without any ifs and buts… we did so thinking that probably it was best for the revival of the party. But now we need answers,” he said.

“They might remove the posters, but this is what many Congress workers are thinking and they would say the same sooner or later…,” he added. On the other hand, Raj Babbar denied that Congress’ alliance with the Samajwadi Party had to do anything with party’s humiliating defeat in the state. “Most had agreed that alliance was the need of the hour. I do not find the alliance to be responsible for the results.
However, as we have lost, there must have been some mistakes and we would review them,” he told media persons in Lucknow after felicitating the new MLAs at the state party headquarters on Saturday.

“No matter what the numbers are, they are suraj ke saath ghodas… The alliance had received support as well, but we the results were not as expected.” He added that BJP has got a huge mandate and “now, it is to be seen if it fulfils its promises,” Babbar added. Speaking about his decision to resign, he said maybe he wasn’t able to put across his point strongly. “Shayad mai apni baat majbooti se nahi rakh paya,” he said.
