“Most of the party’s cadres, when the Congress declines in a state, leaves the party or shifts to other parties. Either another party is created like the YSRCP or the NCP, or cadres just shift to other parties, including the BJP. So, the crisis then is structural. It’s not just the disenchantment of voters, it’s also an organisational problem. And the party just doesn’t have the resources, or the leadership, to rebuild the organisation.” – Gilles Verniers
