Having suffered a string of losses after the 2019 Lok Sabha debacle, the party leaders are hopeful that the emphatic victory in Karnataka and the success in Himachal Pradesh earlier this year will pave the way for similar successes in state polls later this year.
The Congress secured a resounding win in the Karnataka Assembly elections on Saturday, with many dubbing it a precursor to the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. Congress leaders as well as prominent Opposition faces linked the results to upcoming elections with TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee going as far as to predict that the BJP would secure less than a 100 seats. Meanwhile NCP chief Sharad Pawar claimed that the results "present a picture" of next year's Lok Sabha elections.
