Buoyed by the results in Delhi civic polls, BJP President Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday attributed the victory to good governance given by the party saying it has emerged as a strong alternative to the "corrupt" Congress.
The BJP victory in the Delhi civic polls is a result of its good governance and a clear indicator of the anti-Congress mood prevalent in the capital, Gadkari told reporters here.
"Through these elections people have given vent to their anger against the misrule of the Congress government, price rise and corruption," he said with Delhi unit chief Vijayendra Gupta and senior leaders Venkaiah Naidu and Vijay Goel by his side.
The victories of the party in Punjab, Goa, Mumbai and Delhi have strengthened the anti-Congress sentiment, Gadkari said, adding that he was confident that it would continue in the upcoming elections to the state assembly and the Lok Sabha.
He admitted that earlier the party had not performed well in Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Jammu and Kashmir.
"We have reviewed the situation and hope to perform well in the upcoming elections," he said.
Taking a dig at the Congress and other political outfits, Gadkari said the BJP was a democratic party and not a "private limited, public limited party or a father-son or mother-son party."
He said Delhi was the heart of India and the election results also were an indicator of the mood of the nation.
Gadkari said the election results have boosted the morale and confidence of the party which will work hard to emerge as a strong alternative to the Congress.
