Some BJP leaders celebrate their victory in pollsMay 16th, 2009 - 8:20 pm ICT by ANI
Bangalore, Shimla/ Bhopal, May 16 (ANI): Some Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders on Saturday celebrated their success after defeating Congress candidates in their respective constituencies.
In Bangalore, BJP leader Anant Kumar offered his supporters and party workers sweets.
“The all India results are not upto expectations. Today, we are having our parliamentary board meeting under the leadership of L. K. Advani. We are going to discuss about the results there,” Kumar said.
BJP leader and Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal, said he was proud of the voters of his state, who had supported the saffron party.
“The wind, which was blowing in support of the Congress towards Haryana,
Delhi, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Jammu and Kashmir, changed its direction in support of the BJP. For this I thank all the voters of Himachal,” Dhumal said.
Meanwhile, senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj expressed dismay over the BJP losing a large number of seats to the Congress.
“The results that have arrived are only of the BJP and not of the alliance. Our NDA alliance has increased so there has been no mistake in forming the alliance. If we compare the results, then BJP has got less number of votes than Congress. So why should we blame the alliance,” Swaraj said. (ANI)
