How is the Congress today different from the Congress of 2014?
The grand old party faces a unique challenge with its 2014 debacle and is attempting a strategy to face it.
The Congress is not really expecting to come to power this time. It is more interested in ensuring a defeat or a substantive loss for the BJP, while at the same time ensuring that its own organisation strength and tally are bolstered. This election is more an exercise in trying to arrest its own decline.
