It was a high-pitched and bitterly-fought election between the BJP and Congress in Gujarat. A neck to neck completion had all eyes and focus. Some called it a prestige battle for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and a litmus test for new Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

A respectful defeat?
A ‘respectful defeat’ is better than a whitewash! So on paper, it is a good fought election by Congress. And as educated ppl, our duty is to find an opposition for the party in power. Democracy needs it! Else it’s more like autocracy!#GujaratVerdict

Blaming on EVM?
BJP tempered with EVM’s in such a way that it gives them just the number of seats they need to form government in gujarat and congress can’t even complain. Smart play #GujaratVerdict

Modi wave in Gujarat?
Clearly shows that local leadership has totally failed for BJP in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. BJP is solely depending upon “Modi factor” #GujaratVerdict

Here are tweets after results, some are sarcastic whereas some make sense…
A Tweet By Office of Rg
My Congress brothers and sisters, you have made me very proud. You are different than those you fought because you fought anger with dignity. You have demonstrated to everyone that the Congress’s greatest strength is its decency and courage.

I bow to the people of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh for their affection and trust in BJP. I assure them that we will leave no stone unturned in furthering the development journey of these states and serve the people tirelessly.
