New Delhi, Dec 11 : The Janata Congress Chhattisgarh (JCC) chief and former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi on Tuesday said his party will sit in the opposition and not ally with the Congress in the state where the Congress seemed to be heading for a certain victory.
"We will sit in the opposition and not enter into any alliance with the Congress", Mr Jogi told reporters in Raipur giving his first reaction to the election trend results, which showed Congress is leading in 63 seats in the 90 member house.
Meanwhile, the BJP admitted that the mandate in Chhattisgarh was clearly against it, but maintained that K Chandrasekhar Rao-led TRS has done well in Telangana. "The mandate in Chhattisgarh was clearly against us", BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli told to a television channel.
He, however, said the party will do well in Madhya Pradesh where both the Congress and the BJP were going neck and neck and the figures kept changing. The BJP leader also credited TRS for its good show in Telengana where K Chandrasekhar Rao-led Telangana Rashtra Samiti swept the polls with trends showing that the regional party was leading 87 seats.
In Telangana, Congress has fought as an alliance, 'People's Front', with Telugu Desham Party (TDP), Telangana Jana Samiti (TJS) and Communist Party of India (CPI).
However, the results are showing that the alliance failed to put up a satisfactory show. (UNI)
