New Delhi, Tue, 06 Mar 2012 ANI

New Delhi, Mar 6 (ANI): Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accepted responsibility for the party's poor performance in the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls.


Addressing media outside the 10, Janpath residence of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi said that the results of the seven-phased polls in Uttar Pradesh, was a clear indication that the Congress organizationally still had a long way to go to win the confidence of the public in the state.


He expressed confidence that overtime; the Congress Party would surely win in Uttar Pradesh one day.


Congratulating Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and his son Akhilesh Yadav for their superb performance in the Uttar Pradesh polls, Gandhi candidly admitted that the public had given it's verdict in favour of the Samajwadi Party.


Gandhi, who was the most influential face of his party during the campaign in Uttar Pradesh, said the result was a good lesson for him.


"I have worked very hard. One day we will surely win in UP. I view my work as trying to improve the political situation. I think its very good lesson for me," said Gandhi.


"The fundamentals of the Congress Party in UP was weak. It is too early for us to comment," he added, when asked to comment about the party's disappointing performance in Uttar Pradesh.


The Samajwadi Party (SP) is moving towards a majority in Uttar Pradesh and is likely to form the next government in the state.


As per the latest trends, SP is leading in close to 200 seats. The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) will remain second despite a loss of over 100 seats in comparison to the 206 it got in 2007.


The Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party are fighting for third and fourth place. (ANI)
