The Congress has lost power in a number of states in the last two years following its rout in the general elections of 2014 that the BJP-led NDA swept.

In the last 24 months, the Congress has lost Maharashtra, Haryana, Jharkhand (where it was a ally in governance), Jammu and Kashmir, Assam and Kerala besides the power at the Centre. It only came to power in Puducherry in alliance with the DMK. [Which party rules which state now]
