SOT, Rahul Gandhi, Congress President: "Today is the day of the mandate, and I don't want to colour the decision of the people of India by getting into a long conversation with you about what I think went wrong. Frankly, today it doesn't matter what I think went wrong. What matters is that the people of India have decided that Narendra Modi is going to be the Prime Minister and as an Indian person I fully respect that."
SOT, Rahul Gandhi, Congress President: "I want to say, that today is not the day for me to go into the details of this mandate. Today is the day that a new Prime Minister has been elected, and today is the day to wish him all the best and to…hopefully, he will look after the interest of this country."
A sombre looking Congress president, Rahul Gandhi addressed the media at his party headquarters in New Delhi on Thursday, following the massive defeat of his party across the nation and his own personal defeat at the Gandhi-family bastion of Amethi, at the hands of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
In a short press conference, Rahul accepted his defeat and congratulated PM Narendra Modi and Smriti Irani, his rival at Amethi, for their victories, saying "frankly, today it doesn't matter what I think went wrong. What matters is that the people of India have decided that Narendra Modi is going to be the Prime Minister and as an Indian person I fully respect that."
Riding on the massive 'Modi-wave' sweeping through most parts of India, the BJP party looks set to win about 300 of the 543 seats in parliament.
The opposition United Progressive Alliance (UPA) headed by the Indian National Congress (INC) is leading in less than 100 seats, while the party itself may only win around 50 seats.
