BJP's prospective Chief Ministerial candidate on Thursday said both the anti-incumbency factor and people's high regard for Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee resulted in the party sweeping the Madhya Pradesh assembly polls.

Amid joyous scenes, a triumphant Bharati said Chief Minister Digvijay Singh had also hurt the sentiments of the electorate by remarking that whether they vote or not, Congress will return to power.
