Rupani said voters had rejected the "negative campaign and activities" of the Congress.
"Today BJP has emerged victorious across the country, whether it is Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh or Gujarat. This outcome is the result of the work done by Narendra Modi government and the support of people for the BJP," Rupani said.

Praising Narendra Modi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that under the PM's guidance the saffron party has performed exceptionally well in the Bihar elections and the by-polls across India.
The Samajwadi Party on Tuesday retained the Malhani assembly seat with its nominee Lucky Yadav defeating Independent candidate Dhananjaya Singh by a margin of 4,632 votes. The bypolls to the seat were necessitated due to the death of sitting party MLA Parasnath Yadav.
Madhya Pradesh – 28 - The BJP, which is leading in at least 19 of the 28 bye-election seats in Madhya Pradesh, appears to be in a comfortable position to retain power in the state. The party has also won two seats–Suwasra and Mandhata. The Congress is currently leading in seven seats, while the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) is leading in one seat.
