Rahul Gandhi, the newly-anointed president of the Congress party, reacted to the results of the Gujarat assembly election 2017 saying that the polls had delivered the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) a zabardast jhatka (terrific shock). As per Rahul Gandhi the Gujarat election has exposed Narendra Modi’s credibility crisis. The Gujarat elections were no ordinary elections. It can be considered a prelude to the 2019 national election. Gujarat offered the Congress a unique opportunity to win this election. It was the first Gujarat state election in 22 years that did not project Modi as the chief minister or show any credible face in his place. The anti-incumbency factor coupled with BJP’s complacency had put the ruling party on its back foot. But Rahul Gandhi failed in this crucial election.
