"People all over the world have appreciated the Gujarat model but Congress has raised questions. This is a lesson for the Congress and the opposition parties," Adityanath said. 

Referring to Himachal Pradesh, Adityanath said the Congress has not been able to save its fort. 

He said people have rejected the "divisive politics" of Congress. "The win is due to the dynamic leadership of the BJP and hard work of BJP workers."
