New Delhi: Post Gujarat assembly election results, the opposition Congress in Gujarat has said that hat-trick man Narendra Modi has continued the politics of communal and that could not be changed.

Dismissing the rising chorus ‘Modi for PM’, Congress general secretary Madhusudan Mistry said, "Modi is wearing the garb of development but the reason for his victory is communal divide. Why did he raise the Sir Creek issue? It would be country’s darkest day if Modi became Prime Minister.”

When asked about the reason behind the debacle of the party, the former MP sought a change in Congress’ approach in Gujarat. He said, “The main reason of our defeat was the lack of adequate attention.” He further added that the party has to change the strategy.

Meanwhile, the leader also questioned the claim that Muslims voted for BJP in the recently concluded assembly elections saying, If BJP was so confident of shifting Muslim sympathy, then why did it not field a single candidate from the community?"

Modi repeated his success story again in 2012 assembly polls by winning 115 seats and keeping the Congress at bay from returning to power. The saffron party has registered a huge win in Muslim dominated districts of Ahmedabad, Surat and Vadodara. The saffron party won 17 seats out off 21 assembly constituencies in Ahmedabad and nearby vicinity, 15 out of 16 seats from Surat district and 11 out of 13 seats from Vadodara. The Congress managed to win only 61 seats.
