Rahul Gandhi-led Congress put up a strong fight in the high-stake assembly elections in Modi’s home state Gujarat and restricted the BJP below hundred mark.

The Congress won 77, up by 16 seats in the Gujarat assembly elections while BJP crossed the halfway mark and got 99 seats, down by 16 from 115 seats in 2012 assembly polls.

Rahul Gandhi termed the Gujarat verdict as a “moral” victory for Congress saying the election results in PM Modi’s hometown have raised “serious questions” on his “credibility.”
