Well you can interpret it either way for both parties but certainly it is a setback for BJP and encouragng for Congress.
The qustion now must be asked- how far the PM can convass in the State elections and misuse the Govt. funds and machinery for partypropogation. The PM has certainly been overdoing it in all State Elections and making reckless allegations against all and sundry. He is neither maintaining the dignity of the post he is holding nor hiding his parochial leanings. To him the end justifies the means-fair or foul,
Back in Goa, Manohar Parikar is stated that anti-india feeling is developing in Goa. Is there any substance ?

Subject: [IAC#RG] IN GUJARAT BJP WON - BJP LOST
Despite all that abundant money and muscle power at hand, the BJP even after all the sheer misuse of its administrative authority was not able to woo the people of Gujarat. That they just managed to scrape through in the home State of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah which has been a saffron bastion for more than two decades is infact a real humiliation for the Prime Minister and the BJP Chief. A clear indication of the people's disgust over the skewed policies of the government. The BJP which had set a lofty target of 150 seats had to eat the humble pie and be content with just 99 with the Congress clinching a whopping 80. The BJP may have won, but not a moral victory. The verdict is indeed a psychological triumph for the Congress.
