Karnataka Election Results: After Congress secured a massive victory in Karnataka, Rahul Gandhi congratulated the people of the state and expressed his joy.
He addressed the party workers at the Congress office in New Delhi, proclaiming that the market of hate has been closed, and the shops of love have been opened.
Rahul's statement was met with enthusiastic applause from the gathered crowd.
Rahul Gandhi credited the power of the poor people for the Congress party's victory in the Karnataka polls and expressed his belief that this triumph would be replicated in other states as well.
He emphasized that the Congress party had focused on the issues faced by the underprivileged and committed to fulfilling the five promises made during the first cabinet meeting of its government.
With the Congress party leading in almost 140 seats, it seems likely to surpass the expectation of 200 seats set by former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has acknowledged the defeat of his party, as they are only leading in around 60 seats in the 244-member assembly.
Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge's statement was brought to attention before Rahul's. He attributed the party's success to the united efforts made possible by the Gandhi family.
Kharge highlighted the determination of Sonia Gandhi, who campaigned relentlessly despite her poor health, as well as the contributions made by Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi.
Kharge said, "The victory of the Congress in Karnataka is not just a political victory, but a victory for the people, who have defeated a corrupt government." He expressed his commitment to fulfilling the party's promises and 5 guarantees in the days to come.
