Rajasthan Assembly Elections 2023: 'Unexpected result for everyone', Ashok Gehlot accepts defeat, to resign today

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot will hand over his resignation to Rajasthan’s Governor Kalraj Mishra after Congress lost the state to BJP on Sunday.
According to  PTI , sources said that Gehlot is set to meet Governor Mishra at 5:30 pm.
BJP has bagged 114 out of 199 seats in Rajasthan while Congress has won 70.
Conceding Congress’ defeat in Rajasthan, Gehlot said, “We humbly accept the mandate given by the people of Rajasthan. This is an unexpected result for everyone. This defeat shows that we were not completely successful in taking our plans, laws and innovations to the public.”
He added, “I wish the new government all the best…All the schemes including OPS, Chiranjeevi and the pace of development that we have given to Rajasthan in these five years should be taken forward…”

राजस्थान की जनता द्वारा दिए गए जनादेश को हम विनम्रतापूर्वक स्वीकार करते हैं। यह सभी के लिए एक अप्रत्याशित परिणाम है। यह हार दिखाती है कि हम अपनी योजनाओं, कानूनों और नवाचारों को जनता तक पहुंचाने में पूरी तरह कामयाब नहीं रहे।
मैं नई सरकार को शुभकामनाएं देता हूं। मेरी उनको सलाह है…

Modi is expected to address party workers at 6:30 pm at BJP Headquarters in New Delhi.
