(UNI) “Victory and defeat are an integral part of life”, tweeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the election results in five states and within hours after Congress president Rahul Gandhi had said that the mandate in the polls reflected people’s anguish against Mr Modi.
Prime Minister accepted people’s mandate “with humility” and took to the micro blogging site to say:
“We accept the people’s mandate with humility”.
“I thank the people of Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan for giving us the opportunity to serve these states. The BJP Governments in these states worked tirelessly for the welfare of the people,” Mr Modi wrote.
He also congratulated the Congress and the TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao for convincing and “thumping win” in Telangana and also Mizo National Front (MNF) in Mizoram. While TRS has all along maintained anti-BJP, anti-Congress stance, MNF led by former Chief Minister Zoramthanga is a constituent of BJP-led NEDA in the northeast.
