Elections Results LIVE 2023: Ashok Gehlot concedes defeat in Rajasthan

We humbly accept the mandate given by the people of Rajasthan. This is an unexpected result for everyone. This defeat shows that we were not completely successful in taking our plans, laws and innovations to the public.

I wish the new government all the best. My advice to him is that despite working hard, we were not successful, it does not mean that he should not work after coming to the government. All the schemes including OPS, Chiranjeevi and the pace of development that we have given to Rajasthan in these five years should be taken forward.

I thank all the Congress workers who worked hard in this election and express my gratitude to all the voters who believed in us.
