Karnataka polls: ‘Nafrat ka bazaar’ closed down, ‘mohabbat ki dukaanein’ opened, says Rahul

New Delhi, May 13 (PTI) Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday hailed the party’s performance in the Karnataka assembly polls as a victory of love over hate and claimed this will be replicated in other states.

With the party heading towards a comfortable majority in the southern state, Gandhi said “nafrat ka bazaar” has closed down and “mohabbat ki dukaanein” have opened in the state.

The Congress has won 100 of the 224 assembly seats in Karnataka so far and is leading in 36, while the BJP has won 45 and is ahead in 19, according to the latest trends on the Election Commission website. The Janata Dal (Secular) has bagged 16 seats so far and is leading in four.    “I thank and congratulate the people of Karnataka, party workers and leaders,” Gandhi told a press conference here amid bursting of crackers and cheers by party workers at the party’s headquarters.
