#IndiaDecidesOnDec11: Congress-leaders celebrate probable wins, gloom takes over BJP
Celebrations have taken over Congress offices in Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, as the trends of election results have shown the party is performing well in these crucial states.
BJP, which was governing all three states, is standing on the edge of embarrassing defeats. The leaders of the saffron party have urged to wait for the final results.
The results are a gift to Rahul Gandhi: Sachin Pilot
Sachin Pilot, whose work on the ground in the recent months catapulted Congress to go from 21 seats in 2013 to 95 this time, said the results are a gift to Congress President Rahul Gandhi.
He said, "Rahul Gandhi became party president exactly a year ago this day, so this result is a gift for him. Congress will form Govt in three states."
Gehlot hints at alliance with independent candidates
While Pilot may have called the elections, former CM Ashok Gehlot practiced a restrain. Addressing reporters, the tall Congress leader said it would be better to wait for complete results.
"We will get a clear majority, still we would want independent candidates & parties other than BJP to support us if they want," said Gehlot.
Notably, sitting CM Vasundhara Raje evaded questions of reporters.
