Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Monday congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for BJP's victory in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections

In a statement, KCR said he is congratulating Modi on behalf of the people of Telangana and his party the Telangana Rashtra Samiti. 

The BJP fought off a strong challenge from Rahul Gandhi-led Congress to win the Gujarat assembly polls for the sixth straight time on December 18 and also wrested power from the Congress in Himachal Pradesh in a sweeping victory. 

Meanwhile, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president N Uttam Kumar Reddy said the outcome of Gujarat Assembly elections was a clear indication that Congress was on its way back to power across the country. 

Speaking to media persons at AICC Headquarters in the national capital, Reddy said despite being out of power for 22 years, the performance of Congress in Gujarat elections has been tremendous.
