In Himachal Pradesh, Congress is slated to win 39 of 68 seats, having won 26 and leading on 13. The BJP has won 14 seats and is leading on 12. Independents have won three seats and AAP failed to open its account in the state.
The Former Congress President also "humbly" accepted the mandate of Gujarat and said that the party would work on reorganising the party.
"We humbly accept the mandate of the people of Gujarat. We will reorganize, work hard and continue fighting for the ideals of the country and the rights of the people of the state," he said in a subsequent tweet.

According to the latest information from the Election Commission, the Congress is set to suffer its worst electoral defeat in Gujarat, having won seven seats and leading on nine.
The Congress, which had not projected a Chief Ministerial candidate in the hill state, is planning a meeting of its MLAs in Chandigarh with some of its leaders apprehending "poaching" attempts by the BJP.
