New Delhi: Senior Congress leader PC Chacko, who came under fire for blaming former Delhi Chief Minister late Sheila Dikshit for the downfall of the party in the Delhi Assembly Election 2020, on Wednesday clarified that his statement has been wrongly interpreted and said that there is a deliberate campaign happening against him in the aftermath of the poll results.

“I did not say that we lost in Sheila Ji’s time, it is being wrongly interpreted. We lost in 2013, even in 2014, 2015 and 2017. I know who are the people behind all this issue, there is a deliberate campaign against me, I have seen this earlier also,” Chacko said.

Earlier in the day, he had said that the AAP took away the entire Congress vote bank and he went on to blame late Sheila Dikshit for the downfall of the party in the assembly polls.

“The downfall of the Congress party started in 2013 when Sheila ji was the Chief Minister. The emergence of a new party Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) took away the entire Congress vote bank. We could never get it back. It still remains with the AAP,” he had said.

The statement from the Congress leader came after the AAP scored a landslide victory in Delhi Assembly Election 2020 for the second time in a row by securing 62 seats On the other hand, the BJP scored only 8 seats and the Congress failed to open the account.

Following the dismal performance in the Assembly Polls, PC Chacko earlier in the day resigned from the post of Delhi Congress in-charge.
