NEW DELHI: Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday expressed confidence that the party would gain strength to be able to come to power on its own.

"It is absolutely possible. I think we will come up from 44 seats to gain the number of seats needed to get full majority in Parliament," she said during an interview on India Today TV in Allahabad.

"In politics, you win, you lose, you come up in power, you go down, it's part of life," she added to a query if the Congress would be able to revive its postion.

Asked about the struggles of the Congress, Gandhi said: "We will keep fighting. Indira Gandhi was written off, she fought back, we will fight too."
