Ahmedabad: Congress's Gujarat in-charge Ashok Gehlot on Monday said his party is the winner in Assembly elections even if it didn't succeed in ousting the BJP in the state.

"The BJP fought elections on emotional issues. Prime Minister Narendra Modi told voters that he is the son of Gujarat. His prestige is at stake," Gehlot said.

"But the Congress did a real election campaign and talked about the issues related to farmers, Dalits, tribals and traders. We formalized our manifesto for the people of Gujarat after talking to them," he told reporters.

Asked if the Congress win or loss in Gujarat would be credited to new party President Rahul Gandhi, Gehlot said it was a hypothetical question.

"Let's not talk hypothetically. Whatever the election results, the Congress and Rahul Gandhi are the real winners."
