After suffering huge losses in the Assembly Elections, the BJP government on Tuesday said that the polls were not on the expected lines but ruled out any adverse impact of these in the 2019 Lok Sabha Polls.
Speaking to news agency ANI, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that BJP leadership and party workers would 'pause and analyse the results and make corrective steps that may be required before the 2019 general elections.
"The results are not on the expected lines... The results are certainly an opportunity for BJP leadership and cadres to pause and analyse", he said.
He also added that these assembly election results will have no bearing on the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections. "On one sie you have a tried and tested leadership, on the other side you have unstable-coalition parties with different ideologis, which would wither sooner or later", he said.
He further stated that the BJP governments in all three states- Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh did exceptionally well and there was no anti-incumbency factor but the people might have wanted a change because of the fatigue factor.
