BJP's candidate for Punjab's Amritsar Lok Sabha seat Hardeep Singh Puri on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi's historic victory was a tribute to the late Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee and a lesson for the Congress.

"The historic victory of Modi ji is a tribute to Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji and a lesson for Congress that when the earth trembles, big trees also fall," Puri, who unsuccessfully contested the election, said in a tweet.

Diplomat-turned-politician Puri faced a tough straight fight in the constituency dominated by the Jat community, and lost by 99,626 votes from his Congress rival Gurjit Aujla.
