Kolkata [India], Dec 18 (ANI): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday congratulated the voters ''for their balanced verdict'' and termed the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) victory in the Gujarat Assembly elections as a "face-saving win".
She wrote on Twitter: "I congratulate Gujarat voters for their very balanced verdict at this hour. 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."
Mamata has been a vocal critic of the BJP government, since the party's victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
