On the other hand, members of the Indian National Overseas Congress (USA) too celebrated the outcome of Gujarat polls for what they say is a "moral victory" for the party.

People of Gujarat and Himachal have rejected the politics of casteism and voted for development, Jagdish Sewhani, the president of the American-India Public Affairs Committee, said at an event in New York yesterday to celebrate BJP's victory.

"The victory shows that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is still a tall leader in Indian politics," said prominent Indian-American Dr Sudhir Parikh from New Jersey.

But for the Congress supporters, the Gujarat election results have come as an occasion to celebrate.

"In Gujarat, Congress party scored a moral victory... Despite tremendous odds, Congress increased its legislative seats and vote share," said George Abraham, vice-chairman of the newly reconstituted Indian Overseas Congress, USA.
