Former telecom minister A Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and all other accused were recently acquitted by a special court in the 2G spectrum scam case. Gandhi said there is a lot of opportunity for the Congress "that we need to step into and take advantage of".
The Congress got its highest number of seats in Gujarat assembly polls in the last 27 years but party lost power in Himachal Pradesh. "At every step, they were trying to polarise". The newly-elected Congress president said he is confident that his party will form next government in the state.
He said, "this is also an indication that neither the BJP nor the Congress is showing any interest to secure Muslim votes".

The Delhi Congress on Friday held a protest march towards Parliament House seeking an apology from the BJP to the nation for spreading "unfounded allegations" regarding 2G allocation on the basis of "gossips and rumours" as the court "could not find even an iota of evidence of corruption in the case". The whole architecture of the BJP is about lies. BJP, particularly Mr Narendra Modi, Mr Arun Jaitley and their stooge, Vinod Rai created a "fallacious web of allegations of corruption".
"One thing which very clearly emerges that there was a conspiracy whereby an architecture of untruth and entire campaign of insinuations and calumny was systematically built in order to tarnish the image of the then UPA government", he told reporters.
Whatever Mr Gandhi might say, his party will not return to power as people know its corrupt face, Mr Rao added. "The Working Committee was unanimous in saying that the momentum gained from the current set of elections would only be enhanced so that in the next set of elections Congress emerges victorious", Surjewala said.
