Rahul Gandhi: The Congress' dismal showing in Uttar Pradesh is surely a reflection on the Rahul Gandhi led campaign in the state. Not only have the Congress limping behind at fourth place, they have also lost traditional Congress bastions like Amethi. At his mother's home at 10 Janpath in Delhi, Rahul Gandhi commented on the UP elections that he steered for the Congress with such poor results. "I take responsibility, I led the campaign," he said, adding that the result "is a good lesson for me." Mr Gandhi congratulated the Samajwadi Party and its young leader, Akhilesh Yadav, for its clear victory. "The mood (in UP) was for the Samajwadi Party," he conceded.
