After the recent results of Bihar Assembly elections and by-polls to Assembly seats in multiple states, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal has expressed his disappointment over the party’s poor show.
 
 
While questioning party’s leadership, he said, "First of all, we Congressmen must recognise that we are in decline."
 
 
According to reports, Sibal expressed his view publicly after failing to find a forum to express his views to the party. However, he asserted that he will remain with the Congress, hoping for its revival.
 
 
"We know what is wrong with the Congress. Organisationally, we know what is wrong. I think we have all the answers. The Congress party itself knows all the answers. But they are not willing to recognise those answers. If they do not recognise those answers, then the graph will continue to decline. That is the sorry state of affairs that the Congress is in and that is what we are concerned about," Sibal was quoted by The Indian Express.
 
 
Notably, Sibal was one of the 23 Congress leaders behind the "dissent letter" that caused an all-out clash within the party in August, which reportedly garnered no or very less changes that was required from the party’s top leadership.
