Later she apologized for the remark. “According to the traditions of Indian democracy, I accept the mandate. But it is cause for concern for me that the ideology of Mahatma Gandhi’s killer has won in the country and the ideology of Gandhi, which gave peace to this country, has lost,” Singh told reporters here.

Taking potshots at the BJP, he said the party’s slogan in 2014 was to cross 280-mark while this time it was `Abki Bar, 300 Par’ (300 plus this time). “I want to know what magic wand BJP leaders possess so that they know the result even before the voting. I congratulate them for this,” he said. The BJP won 303 seats in the just-concluded general election.

The saffron party, which talked a lot about development earlier, did not seek votes on that issue, he said.last_img
