New Delhi: After the drubbing in the MCD polls, Congress leader and former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Tuesday said that she was not asked to campaign for the polls, which she felt, her party should have contested more aggressively.

“I am not sure what went wrong. We should have campaigned aggressively. All I can say is that I was not asked to campaign,” said Dikshit. She added that there was always something to learn from every loss.

“This loss does not mean that Congress is finished. We are going through a bad phase. Even BJP was out of action for a very long time before it sprung back,” said the former Delhi CM.
