BJP leadership and its cadre in Himachal Pradesh are highly upbeat over the party's victory in assembly elections in Haryana and Maharashtra.

Former chief minister and senior party leader Prem Kumar Dhumal, who actively campaigned in various parts of Haryana ahead of the elections, said that the people of Haryana and Maharashtra gave a mandate in favour of the BJP as they were highly upset with the Congress and its leadership in those states.

Dhumal said that the way people voted had proved that they were determined for ousting the Congress from the national politics for ever.

He said that the party would also form its governments in states, like Jammu and Kashmir, Bihar and Jharkhand and where Vidhan Sabha elections would be held later this year or next year.

He thanked the people of Haryana and Maharashtra for voting in favour of the BJP and added that the party would continue to fulfill the commitments made by its leaders during the electioneering.

Pavan Rana, the state organising secretary of BJP who also campaigned in Haryana, claimed that the party workers from Himachal Pradesh did a commendable work to ensure the victory of BJP candidates in 14 out of the 18 assembly segments where they were deputed by the party high command.

Rana said that the people in Harayna were fed up of the Congress and the leadership of outgoing chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and that was why they voted en masse in favor of the BJP and gave it majority in the Vidhan Sabha.

The BJP leader said that the party's victory was the result of the right thinking policies of the party leadership and the pro-people steps taken by the central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
