In the wake of Congress’ dismal performance in Assembly elections of five states, Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that he accepts the people’s verdict and congratulated the winning parties.
The Congress leader tweeted, “Humbly accept the people’s verdict. Best wishes to those who have won the mandate. My gratitude to all Congress workers and volunteers for their hard work and dedication. We will learn from this and keep working for the interests of the people of India.”
Despite Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Rahul Gandhi putting in their best efforts, the Congress was wiped out in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh failed to wrest power in Uttarakhand, Goa, and Manipur. The BJP retained power in all these states despite the anti-incumbency factor.
Congress headquarters wore a deserted look as celebrations erupted at the BJP headquarters in Delhi after the trends indicated a thumping victory for the saffron party in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.
