After the Congress party's poll debacle in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand Assembly elections, senior party leader Digvijaya Singh on Friday urged party vice-president Rahul Gandhi to act decisively.

“He has to act. My complaint against Rahul Gandhi is that he is not acting decisively. I have told him a number of times. Sometimes, he gets angry when I keep repeating the same thing,” Digvijaya said at an event in New Delhi.

Digvijaya called on for a “new Congress” to rebuild the party after the humiliating losses in the state assembly elections on March 11.

“I would say that we want a new Congress, a new charter, a new roadmap, a new style of campaigning. A new Congress has to be built, and there is no other person who can do it better than Rahul Gandhi," he said.

 “We have to make the Congress party more attuned to modern changing times, looking into the aspirations of a rising middle class, and chart a new course for the party,” he added.
