Conceding defeat in party-ruled Haryana, Congress on Sunday hoped that the new dispensation will continue the growth momentum that has been in the state during its 10-year rule.

"A new government is going to come. I hope they will keep the growth momentum of Haryana," outgoing chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda told reporters.

Hooda said he accepts the people's verdict.

"It is democracy. Last time we had got the verdict. This time it is BJP," he said.

He, however, did not credit "Modi-wave" for the poll results.

"Modi did campaign for his party. That is usual," he said downplaying Prime Minister Narendra Modi's contribution in BJP's success here.

BJP has won 10 seats and was leading in 42 others in the 90-member Assembly. Ruling Congress has got four seats and was leading in 10 others.
