Mumbai: A day after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) victory in the Gujarat local body elections, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar on Wednesday praised the party’s efforts and said the results were very encouraging.

He said, “Yesterday’s results are very encouraging. Elections were held in 31 district panchayats. In 2015, the Congress party won 22 Zilla panchayats, while the BJP won nine. But this time, we won in all 31 Zilla panchayats. Congress is wiped out.”
