Gandhi with the wind

The leaders of India's defeated Congress party, Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, admitted personal responsibility on Friday for the disastrous election results which came after 10 years in power.
"We understand that victory and loss is part of democracy," party president Sonia told reporters in New Delhi as preliminary figures showed the Congress heading for its worst ever performance.
...."I would like to start by congratulating the new government. They have been given a mandate by the people of this country. We have done pretty badly. As vice-president of the party I hold myself responsible," Rahul said.
Which is also apparently a defeat for Amartya Sen in his famous feud with Jagdish Bhagwati, as Bhagwati seems to be in line to advise the new government.
