"As in Gujarat, Congress will bite the dust in Maharashtra elections as well," Uddhav said in his congratulatory message to Modi.

This was "a historic victory", Uddhav said. "This win has shown that it is impossible to beat Modi in Gujarat."

Under Modi's leadership, Gujarat had surged ahead in industry, energy, water and law and order, Uddhav said.

In the neighbouring state, people had defeated Congress, and people of Maharashtra should also defeat the Congress, the Sena executive president added.
