Congress's Ghulam Nabi Azad, one of the key dissenters in the party, on Sunday offered another explanation of the party's recent slump when it comes to elections. Speaking in the middle of the latest controversy to hit the party - sharp criticism by party colleague Kapil Sibal after the Bihar election - Azad said leaders who get a ticket now turn their backs on the heat and dust of campaign, preferring instead to remain ensconced in five-star comfort.

"The problem with our leaders is that if they get a party ticket, they first book a five-star hotel. Even there they want a deluxe place. Then they will not move without an air-conditioned car. They will not go to places where there is an untarred road," Azad told news agency ANI. "Elections are not fought from five-star hotels... We can't win until we change this culture," he added.
