AHMEDABAD:  With the Aam Aadmi Party set to bag 67 seats in the 70-member Delhi Assembly, Union Minister Piyush Goyal today said the BJP will analyse the defeat but insisted that "Modi-wave" has not faded.

"I congratulate AAP on their victory. Now I believe that they will serve Delhi better. We will do an analysis on the verdict," Goyal said at Ahmedabad airport before heading to attend the marriage of BJP president Amit Shah's son here.

"I will not hold anybody responsible for BJP's defeat. We have won many Assembly elections. But I do not feel that Modi wave has faded. No wave can be finished in 10-15 days," Goyal told reporters in reply to a query.

Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das also confessed that there were some short-comings which led to the defeat of the BJP.

"There might be some short-comings, which led to the defeat. Party will analyse those," the BJP leader said.

In a landslide verdict, AAP sweeped the Delhi Assembly polls. BJP managed to get only three seats while the Congress failed to open its account.
