The worries for the Congress seem to be never ending. Renuka Chowdhary has gone on to slam Digvijaya Singh by calling the Goa loss, 'stupid.' The former Union Minister has also sought for the removal of Singh from the post of Congress General Secretary.

She went on to attack the leadership saying Singh must take responsibility for the Goa loss. Regional leaders must be given a free hand if the party has to improve its position in the given situation, she also said.

The outburst from Renuka comes in the wake of several others leaders in the Congress slamming senior leaders for moving slowly in Goa. MLA Vishwajit Rane had said that the party had made a very slow decision in Goa which went on to give the BJP an advantage.

He said that the it was a failure on part of the Congress as they failed to form the government despite winning 17 seats and being the single largest party in Goa. I wont take individual names, but there was a failure, he also said.

Earlier during the day, senior Congress leader Satyavrat Chaturvedi said that the party's leadership was responsible for the loss. He felt that some leaders should introspect and move out in the interest of the Congress party.

The Congress has been accused of being slow movers in Goa. Despite having the numbers, the Goa was unable to capitalise on its lead. The BJP on the other hand moved swiftly and rope in both the MGP and the Goa Forward Party to claim the numbers to form the next government in Goa.
