Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh on Thursday accepted defeat in the Assembly elections saying it was virtually a wave against his party and Government and a vote for a change.
"I had said, if there is a wave, it will be difficult for us. It appears there was a wave," he said conceding that he had failed to feel the pulse of the people.
Singh reiterated that he will not accept any party post including the leadership of Congress Legislature Party for 10 years in the wake of the defeat.
Asked whether he had underestimated his BJP rival Uma Bharti, Singh denied having made such an assessment. "I did not underestimate (Uma Bharti). It went the other way because too much of personality was involved. It was a vote for a change."
He said he would sit in the Opposition and discharge his responsibility in the Assembly.
