New Delhi: Do not blame Rahul Gandhi for the Congress reverses in the assembly polls, Union minister Jayanthi Natarajan suggested on Sunday maintaining that it was a “collective failure" and the party will introspect.

“Congress is not a one-man show. ...It is a collective defeat and collective failure," the Congress leader said dismissing suggestions that the Congress vice-president was to be blamed for the poor show.

“We will introspect on our losses, we will see where we have gone wrong and I am very sure as happened in 1998-99 when we won state elections and lost the Lok happened in 2003 when BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) actually won the assembly polls and lost the Lok Sabha," she said.

Natarajan’s comments came as BJP is heading for landslide victory in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, while wresting power in Delhi.
