Jubilant over Congress taking lead in Rajasthan, former Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Monday, Dec 8 that people are 'relieved' that the ruling BJP is on 'its way out'.
"Everybody is relieved that BJP is on its way out. People were being terrorised during the BJP rule," Gehlot told reporters as early trends indicated Congress leading over the saffron party.
Asked who would be the next Congress Chief Minister in Rajasthan if the party gets majority in the 200-member Assembly, Gehlot said the party high command would take a decision on the matter.
Pall of gloom for BJP...
The BJP is disappointed with the Assembly election outcome in Rajasthan.
"Rajasthan is sad. The results have been depressing. The rebel factor was not managed by the party very well. But Vasundhara Raje's performance has been very good," party Spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said.
Congress has established a big lead in Rajasthan and is all set to cross the half-way mark in the 200-seat Assembly.
