Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on Tuesday said BJP's victory in Gujarat Assembly elections and by-elections in Rajasthan have clearly shown that people don't want Congress but asked partymen not to be complacent.


"These elections have clearly shown that people don't want Congress and because of this BJP's responsibility has increased," he told the BJP Parliamentary Party at its weekly meeting.

Briefing reporters after the meeting, party spokesman VK Malhotra said Vajpayee told partymen not to be overconfident and work towards party's success in the coming assembly polls in ten states.

The Prime Minister said it was Congress which had raised Godhra issue during electioneering for Gujarat assembly polls.

Vajpayee said the victory in Gujarat was due to good work done by the BJP government in the state as also the negative propaganda of Congress, according to Malhotra.
