, the BJP leader, said that it is a successful defeat. After she pronounced the term Successful Defeat (வெற்றிகரமான தோல்வி), the term turned popular and the people started questioning her. To those people, she had replied with a proper explanation. She says that in Rajasthan, BJP got 40% of the votes and Congress got 41% and the margin is very close.
