If one political party has been the biggest loser in the election of District Development Council in Jammu and Kashmir, it is the Congress which could win only 26 seats out of 280 seats.

The Congress, once a strong political force in Jammu and Kashmir, did not expect itself to perform so badly.

According to party spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi, the performance of the Congress was below expectations. He gave a big reason for this, that the Congress was stuck between different issues of Jammu and Kashmir Valley.

Unsuccessful success
