Well In Rajasthan it was caste politics BJP brought peace with agetating Gurjars by giving them 5% in OBC quota this was unaccaptible to powerful OBC meena caste who are more in number and they brought down curtains on BJP. There was no real win of Congress as it is still a hung assembly . To rural voters of Rajasthan happning of Mumbai are remote possibility.
Delhi is too small a constituencey to give any verdict but the Chattriati middle classes of Delhi do not vote and Slum dwellers , illegal bangladeshis and Muslims do vote enmass and ensured congress win.
It would be wrong inference to draw that despite mumbai incidences handling Congress won because BJP won in 2 large states and Rajasthan is hung, number of seats of congress in Delhi have reduced and Mizoram is not that significant in overall scheme of things. Congress spin doctors in media may paint this as greatvicotry but it is not.

People wanted to create a MAYA for congress and to live in kushi for sometime so that they will declare next general election immediately. This victory will make congess to slip (in candate selection) & sleep (in preparations) which will pave victory for Communist alliance parties in next Gen Election

BJP would have lost in a BIG way in Rajastan because of Gujjar politics, dissidence and Vasundhara's autocratic ways. But the Mumbai events pulled it back a little to keep Congress just short of majority. This I believe is the fact of the matter. 3 other states, Delhi, MP and Chattisghar have voted for silent, non-flambouyant and working CMs. Mizoram is a vote against MNF. That sums up these elections.

Lagta hai logo ko abhi bhi nahi samajh me aaya that congress party is a good for nothing whose work is to keep sucking blood of the countrymen. Congress is known to bribe and give various gifts to voters to win their votes. Surely this has happened this time also and people forgot all that happened in mumbai. In the 1999 or so general elections (the one that BJP+ won), Congress people were distributing wine and butter chicken to voters in Bellari so that they vote for Sonia Gandhi instead of Sushma Swaraj.

In Delhi congress has worked for the development while in rajasthan BJP had worked but the approach to the cm was too very difficult who was projected as royal cm by the congress to draw the atention todards itself, plus internal rebels made bjp loose as much as 20 seats there.
