Senior Congress leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda during his personal visit to Bihar said the state Congress would have a new chief soon, as the phase of elections and by-elections was over.
Kanhaiya was at the UPCC office to address a 'Yuva Sansad' organised by the party when the youth tried to throw the chemical at him.
Congress joined hands with these two parties at the national level because they were anti-BJP, but in Goa, where Congress has the capability to defeat the BJP, they rushed to contest polls, he said.
Congress leader Kanhaiya Kumar on Friday appealed the youngsters who want to save the country to join the Sonia Gandhi-led party.
Southern States seem to be lagging behind in producing such young political leaders with the potential to contribute to the national narrative.
Congress leader Kanhaiya Kumar and others also campaigned for three days. In both constituencies, the Congress candidates forfeited their deposits.
“No CPI leader has questioned the attack on the woman. If the AISF woman leader joins the Congress, we’ll protect her,” said Sudhakaran.
The Congress Party is staking claim on the Kusheshwar Asthan Assembly seat in Darbhanga, elections for which will be held on October 30.
Kanhaiya Kumar's move was a result of his ambition. There is no ideological political commitment, CPI general secretary D Raja said.
The JNU leader’s entry gives the Congress a new vigour, but it cannot amount to much if confusion continues at the top levels of the party’s leadership.
Ashok Choudhary, who was himself a dynamic president of the state Congress a few years ago, nonetheless wished the former JNU student leader well.
Ridiculing the Congress by calling it a sinking ship, senior RJD leader Shivanand Tiwari said that Kumar's joining won't make any difference to the party.
Whatever be the reason, Kanhaiya's induction into the Congress has caused ripples within the RJD and the political corridors of Bihar.
BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia alleged that the Congress has divisive and anti-India ideology and is, therefore, welcoming leaders like Kanhaiya Kumar.
He alleged that Kumar was "not truthful" with the Communist Party of India (CPI) leadership and also not "straightforward" in his demands from the party.
