Congress has done well in the Assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat and it has won in places where party general secretary Rahul Gandhi had campaigned, information and broadcasting minister Manish Tewari said on Thursday.


"We have done well, therefore, obviously, I think if anyone has the reason to celebrate it is the Congress party," Tewari said in New Delhi.

"Interestingly, I think it must be understood that in all the 12 or 13 constituencies in which Rahul Gandhi campaigned in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat, if my information is correct, Congress has won all those and that too by a very convincing margin," he said.

While BJP has swept the Gujarat Assembly polls, Congress has wrested the hill state from the saffron party.
