After losing to the BJP in Delhi civic polls, the Congress today pitched for opposition unity, saying the regional parties should realise that “blind anti- Congressism” will not work. AICC incharge of communications department Randeep Surjewala said the parties must put the country first in the “battle of ideologies”, remarks which come in the backdrop of attempts by leaders like JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee to rally anti-BJP forces to stop the saffron juggernaut.

He also congratulated the BJP for its emphatic victory in Delhi MCD elections, in which Congress has been relegated to the third spot, and hoped it will work for a clean, corruption-free and development driven Delhi. “Hope all regional parties will now realise that blind anti-Congressism is not the way. Country must come first in the battle of ideologies,” Surjewala said on twitter.
