Today is not a good day for Congress President Rahul Gandhi. Defections in Maharashtra and Gujarat followed by BSP supremo Mayawati shutting the doors to any possible alliance. In what is being seen as a major embarrassment for the Congress, Sujay Vikhe Patil, son of the leader of opposition in Maharashtra Radhakrishna Patil, joined the BJP. 4 Congress MLAs in BJP dominated Gujarat have changed teams. As Rahul Gandhi chaired the party's working committee meeting in Ahmedabad saying it must focus on the economy and jobs to counter the BJP. The Congress is trying to change its track from national security to the economy in an attempt to blunt Modi's edge after the Balakot strike even as the BJP continues to hammer Rahul for referring to Masood Azhar as 'ji', What will be the effect of all of these factors on the campaign trail ?
