Despite all that abundant money and muscle power at hand, the BJP even after all the sheer misuse of its administrative authority was not able to woo the people of Gujarat. That they just managed to scrape through in the home State of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah which has been a saffron bastion for more than two decades is infact a real humiliation for the Prime Minister and the BJP Chief. A clear indication of the people’s disgust over the skewed policies of the government. The BJP which had set a lofty target of 150 seats had to eat the humble pie and be content with just 99 with the Congress clinching a whopping 80. The BJP may have won, but not a moral victory. The verdict is indeed a psychological triumph for the Congress.
