On the other hand, the Rahul Gandhi-led party improved its performance and its vote share increased from 38.9 per cent (2012) to 41.4 per cent.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday visited Gujarat's Somnath Temple ahead of holding review meetings with the newly-elected MLAs, leaders and party workers.

Gandhi's remarks come in the wake of the 2G spectrum allocation case court verdict on Thursday and the Adarsh Society case order passed by the Bombay High Court on Friday. He termed the Gujarat campaign as "unique" and "a real eye-opener" for him, where he got to know how the BJP designs campaigns and "uses hatred and untruth" to fight elections.

"During Gujarat elections, it seemed like the Congress leaders and the BJP leaders were not campaigning for elections but were trying to visit the maximum number of temples".

"The entire conspiracy webbed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP stands exposed following the 2G verdict pronounced by a special CBI court". Later addressing the media, Congress communications incharge Randeep Surjewala said the CWC also discussed the current political situation and how the BJP "concocted the conspiracy" against the Congress in the 2G issue. The scriptwriter of the story was former CAG Vinod Rai and the director, producer, propaganda chairman and secretaries were BJP leaders. Mr Modi, Mr Jaitley and the BJP leadership should come forward to own up their sinister maligning machinations and apologize to the nation, " the CWC said. His mother and predecessor Sonia Gandhi was also present at the meeting taking place here.

The alleged scam relates to the granting of 2G spectrum licences in 2007-08, which caused, according to a report by the then Comptroller and Auditor General of India, a loss of Rs 1.76 lakh crore to the public exchequer.

He further said that the manner in which Congress campaigned for Gujarat has made the country think that they were not campaigning for elections but were on a temple run.
