New Delhi, May 19: Congress, the grand old party of India is likely to disappear from the political radar. It seems the party has become more cooperative for BJP to make their dream of "Congress mukt Bharat" a reality.
The Congress suffered huge setbacks in the five states where results of the assembly elections are being announced on Thursday.
The party lost Assam to BJP for huge margins, while the Left Front trounced the Congress-led UDF in Kerala. Congress remained in power in Assam for three consecutive terms.
Congress failed to make any major impact in Tamil Nadu where it partnered with DMK. People in West Bengal also rejected its experiment to form an alliance with the Left.
Here is how Twitterati reacted on Congress defeat in assembly elections
Congress Party's real challenge is not an election defeat or two. The real challenge is the Gandhi family.— rama lakshmi (@RamaNewDelhi) May 19, 2016
This is just a repeat of 2014 defeat that Congress got. Deserving because they refused to learn lessons— Joy (@Joydas) May 19, 2016
This verdict has further strengthened BJP's position as a national party while pushing Congress towards the position of a regional party.— Shahnawaz Hussain (@ShahnawazBJP) May 19, 2016

Once upon a time, we had Congress I political party in India #Verdict16— Tajinder Pal S Bagga (@TajinderBagga) May 19, 2016
If Congress has any sense left, it'd replace Family with merit. NOW. In short term, it can't get much worse. Long run it'd gain. #Verdict16— Abhijit Majumder (@abhijitmajumder) May 19, 2016
Total number of panelists discussing these election results on single channel is greater than total votes Congress getting in these election— Paresh Rawal (@Babu_Bhaiyaa) May 19, 2016

So am guessing Congress high command will wear a sombre look this morning and get back to the 'binaries' and suit boot rhetoric tomorrow.— Rana Ayyub (@RanaAyyub) May 19, 2016
Congress wiped out everywhere- loses two more states. At this point, though, ahead of the Left in West Bengal!— Vikram Chandra (@vikramchandra) May 19, 2016
We will inch closer to Congress Mukt Bharat today. That's all that matters.— Vande Mataram (@UnSubtleDesi) May 19, 2016
