A look at Congress's vote-shares in all states and a comparison with BJP
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]
