New Delhi: The Congress headquarters in New Delhi wore a deserted look with counting trends showing only a marginal improvement in the party’s tally from the previous Lok Sabha elections.
Senior party leaders were conspicuous by their absence, News18 reported. Trends showed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead in 300 seats while the Congress was leading in 52 seats, as per the Election Commission website.
Congress spokespersons present at the party headquarters were also keen to know the trends to firm up before giving their opinion.
Some Congress workers who gathered outside the party office blamed the trends of the results on the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs). They also held a protest carrying placards demanding that EVMs should not be used in elections.
