Election Results: Polls fought on state performance, not a reflection on Modi govt: Rajnath

New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday while rejecting the thought that the results would be a reflection on the Modi government said the polls were fought on the basis of the performance of state governments.

As the TRS appears set to retain to power with a big majority in the Telangana state, he pointed out the Congress-led grand alliance was heading to a “huge defeat” in the state.

He also offered his well-wishings to all the winning parties and candidates. According to the trends the Congress was conveniently ahead of the ruling BJP in Chhattisgarh and has an edge over it in Rajasthan.

Both the Congress and the BJP were locked in a neck and neck race in Madhya Pradesh while the Congress appeared to be losing power in Mizoram to Mizo National Front.
