CONGRESS NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN TV DEBATES FOR 1 MONTH POST DEFEAT

The Congress has announced that it will not participate in television debates for a month, in the middle of a huge internal crisis following Rahul Gandhi's refusal to continue as its chief over the party's election rout.
"The Congress has decided to not send spokespersons on television debates for a month," the party's spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said in a tweet on Thursday.

"All media channels/editors are requested to not place Congress representatives on their shows," he added.
The Congress was wiped out in 18 states and union territories and couldn't win even in the states it won in December - Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh.On the other hand, the BJP led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi won 303 seats to win an incredible back-to-back majority, a feat previously achieved only by Congress icons like Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi.

The worst cut of all was Rahul Gandhi's defeat in his traditional Amethi constituency in Uttar Pradesh, where he had effortlessly won since 2004, when he debuted in politics.

If the Congress president had not contested from Kerala's Wayanad and won, he would not have been in parliament. The party, with 52 seats in the 543-member Lok Sabha, does not even qualify for the post of Leader of Opposition, for which 55 seats is the prerequisite.
A day after the national election result on May 23, Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav had also said that no channel should invite any of its leaders for debates.
