BJP Chief Amit Shah, however, took a swing at the opposition saying that the results are a wake-up call for them.
"BJP has emerged as the largest party, I thank people of Maharashtra for their continued support and faith in BJP's development politics. Maharashtra result should be a wakeup call for opposition attempting to mislead people on #Demonetisation, a decision in national interest," he tweeted.
