The huge mandate won by the Congress in Karnataka is an affirmation of Rahul Gandhi's hard work, Gehlot said, adding this was evident during the Bharat Jodo Yatra. The BJP came to power in the state by toppling the Congress-JD(S) government, he said.

"The people of Karnataka taught a befitting lesson to the BJP in this election. The BJP does it (topple governments) in every state. They did it in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra," he said.It also tried to do so in Rajasthan but "we somehow managed to save our government", he added. People have now understood that the BJP is pulling down democratically chosen governments, Gehlot said.
