“Trends make it clear that Congress is forming Govt in Rajasthan with full majority, we had 21 seats last time. We should wait for the final numbers. Congress leadership and MLAs will decide who will get what role. 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,” said Sachin Pilot speaking to ANI.
In a tight race, Congress is slightly ahead in Rajasthan, while trailing by few seats in Madhya Pradesh. Congress has managed a victory in Chhattisgarh but has failed to win in Telangana. It is also set to lose in Mizoram to Mizo National Front.
It seems that Congress party and its workers are finally celebrating the claim of its president Rahul Gandhi of finally coming to age after series of election losses in last 4 years despite it has just managed to secure a majority in only one state out of five it had contested. Rahul Gandhi was promoted as the President of the grand old party last year on 11th December, ahead of Gujarat Assembly results, positioning him as the prime ministerial candidate for upcoming 2019 elections.
