Dwivedi said that party president Sonia Gandhi took full responsibility for the party's defeat. "Party President Sonia Gandhi took responsibility for the shortcomings of the party and offered to resign while Manmohan Singh took responsibility for the shortcomings of the government - price rise and corruption," Dwivedi said.
He said that the Manmohan Singh admitted that both Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi had put in a lot of hardwork.
