The Congress rout across the country was due to the "collective failure of the Gandhi family", Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said Friday.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader told reporters outside a counting centre in Panaji that the party was polling more votes than expected in Goa. Asked to comment on the Congress rout in the Lok Sabha poll, Parrikar said: "This is a result of the collective failure of the Gandhi family."
He also credited BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for the party's sweep across the country.
The BJP was leading in both Lok Sabha constituencies in Goa.
