New Delhi, May 20 (UNI) BJP President Rajnath Singh today said the clear majority to the BJP in the Delhi Cantonment Board elections was an indication by the people that the Congress had failed in ruling the country during its four-year in power.
''The aspirations of the people have not been fulfilled. The Congress will have to face the consequences in the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections,'' Mr Singh said after meeting all the five elected BJP candidates from Delhi Cantonment - Pradeep Kadiyan, Sanjeev Nayyar, Lal Chand Mehrauliya, Neena Sharma and Anupama Tripathi.
Accompanying the BJP candidates, who came to seek Mr Singh's blessings, were senior leaders of the Party Vijay Kumar Malhotra, Pradesh President Harsh Vardhan, Legislator Karan Singh Tanwar, BJYM President Anil Sharma and Mandal President Rajesh Goel.
Mr Singh said the unprecedented zeal of the BJP workers and voters foiled all the efforts of the Congress and by giving a clear mandate against it, the electorate of the area had clearly indicated that people of the country did not want the party to continue in office.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Harsh Vardhan said due to frustration from the defeat, the Congress was alleging that the BJP indulged in bogus voting whereas most of the votes rejected were those for the BJP candidates.
''Had these votes been polled, the results would have been surprising. Not a single Congress candidate could have won,'' he said.
The BJP Pradesh President said the people had given their mandate against the ''anti-people'' Congress Governments at the Centre and Delhi.
''The danger bell is ringing for the Congress for the forthcoming assembly elections. After losing Assembly elections, the Congress will also lose Lok Sabha elections,'' he said.
