On the other hand, members of the Indian National Overseas Congress (USA) too celebrated the outcome of Gujarat polls for what they say is a "moral victory" for the party.
People of Gujarat and Himachal have rejected the politics of casteism and voted for development, Jagdish Sewhani, the President of the American-India Public Affairs Committee, said at an event in New York yesterday to celebrate BJP's victory.
For the Congress supporters also, the Gujarat election results have come as an occasion to celebrate. "In Gujarat, Congress party scored a moral victory... Despite tremendous odds, Congress increased its legislative seats and vote share," said George Abraham, vice-chairman of the newly reconstituted Indian Overseas Congress, USA.
