Moral defeat for BJP in Gujarat: Mamata

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said it was a moral defeat for the BJP in Gujarat and the people of the state have "belled the cat for 2019".

Congratulating the people of Gujarat for their "very balanced verdict at this hour", Banerjee said it was a face-saving win for the ruling party.

"It is a temporary and face-saving win, but it shows a moral defeat for BJP. Gujarat voted against atrocities, anxiety and injustice caused to the common people. Gujarat belled the cat for 2019," Banerjee tweeted.

The TMC chief had recently hailed Congress president Rahul Gandhi for "putting the BJP on the back foot".
