Bihar gave Cong chance to rearrange thoughts: Khurshid

The Bihar experiment and Congress’ impressive showing should lead to possibilities in states where elections are due, feels senior party leader Salman Khurshid.

According to the former external affairs minister, West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh, where elections are due, are both very challenging propositions.

“Bihar was in many ways the happening of the impossible. The Congress might have been a relatively smaller partner but it made the difference in providing the emotional glue to the alliance,” he says.

“In addition, it gives us an opportunity to rearrange its thoughts and plans for the future. The Shimla spirit gave us the impetus for the UPA and similarly the Bihar experiment should lead to possibilities in the States where elections are due,” Khurshid said.
