The counting of votes for the 2017 Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections is still taking place, but social media users have already declared Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) a "big winner" and trolled Rahul Gandhi.
The BJP is leading in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh and is poised to emerge as the winner in both the states. In Delhi, the workers have also started to celebrate, as trends indicate that BJP is inching closer to victory in both the states.
Not only the workers, but even social media users celebrated the victory. Twitter was flooded with ever-sarcastic and humour-seeking tweets. From hacking EVMs to calculating GST, thousands of funny and witty tweets were shared on the social media platform. In fact, #GujaratVerdict, #ElectionResults2017, #GujratResults and #HimachalPradeshElections are the top four topics that are dominating India Twitter trends since Monday morning.
BJP spokesperson for Delhi Tajinder Bagga shared a photo of a cake with mushrooms' image on top and took a sarcastic dig at the rival party. During the poll campaign, Rahul Gandhi led Congress' ally Alpesh Thakore said that Modi consumes imported mushrooms that gives him a fair complexion.
The mushroom is said to be worth Rs 4 lakh. Taking a dig at Thakore's comment, Bagga distributed the mushroom cake and said it will clean black hearts.
Check out what social media users have to say about the Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections results:

#GujaratVerdict is a lesson for the BJP
*Don't take Hindu votes for granted. Hindus don't vote en mass like other faiths.
*Don't dilute Hindu & national interests.
*Book corrupt from previous regime as promised.
*People are not impressed with your smart one liners on TV studios.

If BJP wins 150 seats : EVMs are Tampered.
If BJP wins 120 seats : BJP plays communal politics.
If BJP wins 100 seats : Its a moral victory for Congress.
If BJP loses Gujarat : Its a victory of Democracy. #GujaratVerdict#ResultDay#RahulGandhi #GujaratResults

After 22 years in power and after GST, the effect of which was most profound in a business state like Gujarat, BJP winning by any margin is HUGE.
22 yrs of incumbency+ Demonitisation+ GST, yet crushing his opponents.
Another L for RG.#GujaratVerdict

I wonder whether Rahul Gandhi is still going to be called PAPPU after the effective leadership in PM's Home State? Think about it. #ElectionResults #GujaratVerdict #ElectionResults2017 #GujaratResults
