‘Certain that Congress has won’, says Jairam Ramesh as Bommai concedes defeat

As Congress inches closer to victory in Karnataka, Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh said that the grand old party’s win in the southern state is now “certain”.

“As the results firm up in Karnataka it is now certain that the Congress has won and the PM has lost. The BJP had made its election campaign a referendum on the PM and on the state getting his ‘ashirwaad’. That has been decisively rejected!” he said in a tweet.

Meanwhile, Congress party members have already begun celebrating in various states.

Chief Minister Basavraj Bommai has conceded to BJP’s victory in Karnataka. He said, “We’ve not been able to make the mark. Once the results come we will do a detailed analysis. As a national party, we will not only analyse but also see what deficiencies and gaps were left at various levels. We take this result in our stride.”

Commenting on the party’s possible victory, Congress leader Siddaramaiah said, “We told that even if PM Modi comes nothing will work and see that has happened. We are leading in 120 seats. As we expected we will get the majority.”

Notably, Congress’ poll promise focused on local issues of livelihood and food security, price rise, farmer distress, electricity supply, joblessness and corruption, Jairam noted.

He added, “The PM injected divisiveness and attempted polarisation. The vote in Karnataka is for an engine in Bengaluru that will combine economic growth with social harmony.”
