Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday accepting the mandate of the people kn the five state assembly elections thanked the people of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh where the BJP lost to Congress.

Modi said that the party accepts 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,” the PM tweeted.

Modi had campaigned intensely alongside state leaders and BJP chief Amit Shah in all the five states that went to polls over the last month.

While Congress seized Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, it went neck-and-neck with BJP in Madhya Pradesh. In Telangana, TRS registered a massive win, while Mizoram was conquered with ease by the Mizo National Front. “Congratulations to the Congress for their victories. Congratulations to KCR Garu for the thumping win in Telangana and to the Mizo National Front (MNF) for their impressive victory in Mizoram,” PM Modi tweeted.

Earlier in the day, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had taught him several lessons since the infamous defeat of his party in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. “PM Modi taught me lessons in what not to do. He was handed a huge mandate in 2014 but he refused to listen to the people’s voice. One must always hear what the people have to say in a democracy, they are the best teachers,” Rahul had said in a press conference.

While the Congress had reached majority in Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, it was still a close fight in Madhya Pradesh as final polls are yet to come out. At the time of writing this copy, Congress had won 114 seats falling short of the 116 required to form the government, while BJP had secured 108 in MP.
