Congress Lok Sabha candidate Urmila Matondkar, who lost her election debut from the Mumbai North constituency to sitting BJP lawmaker Gopal Shetty by more than 4.6 lakh votes, today described her election battle as "glorious". She said she was satisfied she fought the election with "dignity" and "integrity". The actress had been dismissed by the BJP as "a naive girl, zero in politics". "I think this battle has been an absolutely glorious one for me. I'm standing here defeated, but do I look a lost person to you?" she told NDTV, apparently undaunted by the scale of her loss.
