"This is a decisive victory for BJP. This anti-Congress vote is not only against corruption, price rise and anti-people policies, but a mandate against Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi," she said on the sidelines of a function.
    
"This victory has given out a message, just 5-6 months before the general elections, it is a decisive indication that people want to have a BJP-led government at the Centre," she said.
    
Taking a dig at the UPA's Food Security Act, Irani said the Congress leadership had tried many stunts, but all fell flat.
    
Asked about the dream debut of AAP in the Delhi Assembly elections and BJP failing to manage a clean sweep, Irani said, "It is good for the health of parliamentary democracy if a new force emerges, but according to norms you can only serve the people through government and the people of Delhi have blessed the BJP by giving them the mandate."
    
Attributing the victory to good governance of BJP and its leadership, she said, "The victory can be attributed to our organisational strength, to our leadership including Rajnath Singh, L K Advani and Narendra Modi. This is a victory of our united steps."
    
On a question whether this victory would help BJP to get more allies before the 2014 elections, Irani said, "A victory is an impetus to work harder. I think BJP is poised for a decisive victory in 2014 and it is very obvious that anybody who wants to contribute to the country's development, will join hands with us."
