The results of assembly elections in four states were a clear mandate against the rampant corruption and anti-people functioning of the Congress, the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) and BJP said on Sunday.

Stating that the people of the four states had voted against Congress for its alleged involvement in several scams, unprecedented price rise and anti-people policies, INLD state president Ashok Arora said in a statement that such results would also reflect in Haryana.

Arora categorically said that all the Congress candidates for whom the Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda had campaigned for and held rallies in their constituencies lost the election.

Arora further said that in the last assembly polls in Haryana too, the Congress had failed to get a majority and bagged only 40 seats out of 90. "However, it was with the help of turncoats that Hooda managed to form the government. The next assembly polls would throw Congress out for patronising corruption and anti-people policies,"he said.

Meanwhile, INLD leader and MLA from Ellenabad Abhey Chautala congratulated Abhishek Matoria for his win in Nohar constituency in Rajasthan. Matoria is Abhey's brother-in-law and youngest candidate to have won in Rajasthan assembly polls, the INLD release said.

State BJP president Ram Bilas Sharma also congratulated the people of the four states for voting in favour of the BJP and held that it was a referendum against price rise, corruption and anti-people policies. "The people have accepted Narendra Modi as the future prime minister and voted in favour of BJP due to Modi's clean image,"he said in a release and added that Congress had been wiped out from the four states. The BJP spokesperson Vir Kumar Yadav also said that BJP had won for the third time in a row in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, because of good governance provided by the respective chief ministers there.
