Q.

Subhas Chandra Bose was elected president of the Congress in 1938 with Gandhi's goodwill. He wanted a second term, but Gandhi did not approve of it.
Despite this disapproval, Bose fought the election and won, defeating the official candidate by over 200 votes. Gandhi took it as a personal defeat. Who was the defeated candidate?

You are mistaken.

Subhash Chandra Bose was unanimously elected President of the Haripura (in Gujarat) Congress session in 1938.

He was re-elected President in 1939, even against the wishes of Mahatma Gandhi who had backed the candidature of Dr. Pattabhi Sitaramayya. The other two candidates, Sardar Patel and Maulana Azad had withdrawn from the contest.

Pattabhi Sitabhi ramaiiya.
And Gandhi called himself a democrat!! If you are a democrat then why did you not accept your candidate's defeat gracefully since Bose had one legitimately in an election ?
Why did you walk out saying 'Paatabhi's defeat is my defeat?'
