    "I did not get many votes of the minority community members, but this is also true that people from the minority community, who had voted for me, it was a blessing for me.

    "A number of persons from the minority community had supported me and also campaigned for me. Sarcastic remarks were made against them, yet they did not budge and wholeheartedly supported me in the election," he said on a visit here Monday.
