New Delhi: Accepting "people's mandate with humility", Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday congratulated the Congress, Telangana's K Chandrashekar Rao and the Mizo National Front for their respective victories and said and added in a philosophical vein that it is a part of life.

Even though counting is still on in Madhya Pradesh, where the BJP is locked in a close contest with the Congress, the PM's tweet thanked the "people of Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan" for giving the BJP an opportunity to serve them.

For Rahul Gandhi and the Congress, this has been the best result on a polling day since 2014.

Noting that victory and defeat are an integral part of life, PM Modi said the results have further strengthened the party's resolve to serve people and work even harder for "the development of India".

Rahul, in his first comments post the state wins, said a "resurgent Congress" will make it very difficult for PM Modi to win the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

"PM Modi was handed a huge opportunity. It is a sad thing that he refused to listen to the heartbeat of the country. The arrogance came in," said Rahul.
