The newly crowned party President held his first Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting in the national capital on Friday.

Surjewala's remarks come after all accused in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case, including former telecom minister A Raja and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) MP Kanimozhi, were acquitted by the special CBI court on Thursday for want of evidences.

In Gujarat, the Congress has lost the election but the party has been boasting about the results as a symbolic victory for its cadre as it instilled a sense of confidence within the ranks. 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 BJP maligned the country and the Congress party for years together making false allegations of corruption as their principal strategy to gain power".

He claimed that whatever Gandhi might say, his party would not return to power as people know its "corrupt face". The whole architecture of the BJP is about lies.
