The businessman added that though the results were disheartening for the grand old party, "the fight must go on".
"Winning & losing is a part of life. My best wishes to Congress leaders & workers.There was plenty of hard work that went into elections. No doubt, it's disheartening but let's keep the fight on. I congratulate PM Mr. Narendra Modi, BJP & NDA," Vadra tweeted a day after Congress managed a measly gain of around 10 per cent.

After being routed at the hands of Narendra Modi-led BJP on Thursday, Congress president Rahul Gandhi offered to resign from his post. However, erstwhile Congress supremo and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi turned down the offer.
Despite getting Priyanka Gandhi in the forefront, the Congress failed to make a mark.
Much like the 16th Lok Sabha in 2014, the lower house of the Parliament may be again bereft of the leader of opposition (LOP). As per the results of counting till 8 pm, the Congress has bagged 51 seats, which is four short of the mark needed for the LOP status.
The Leader of Opposition is a constitutional appointment and is part of the Central Vigilance Commission, Central Information Commission, National Human Rights Commission and National Judicial Appointments Commission. According to parliamentary rules, the largest Opposition party in the House needs at least 55 seats, to be eligible for the LOP post.
