The Congress's seats have plummeted sharply since the 2014 Lok Sabha election. In the last 2,226 seats that went to polls, including the 543 in the Lok Sabha, the grand-old party of India has won a paltry 261.

However, in terms of vote-shares, the Congress's situation might not be as bad. In the recently held Assembly elections, the party's vote-share in states like West Bengal and Assam have actually increased, compared to the previous elections---state or parliamentary. [Congress, BJP-ruled states]
