SP defeats BJP in UP Lok Sabha polls

BJP prepares for first anniversary celebrations of Yogi govt Friendship with Congress will continue: SP president

Samajwadi Party and BSP workers have begun celebration as SP candidates are leading on both Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats.

"Our ties are good with everyone", he said, commenting on the BSP's support to the Samajwadi Party in the Uttar Pradesh by-polls.

The victories in Phulpur and Gorakhpur of the SP-BSP alliance has proved to be a big setback for the BJP.

The BJP was also trounced in a parliamentary and assembly constituency apiece in Bihar at the hands of the jailed former chief minister Lalu Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal, which included one Muslim victor.

"Congratulations to the winners of today's by-elections".

"Perhaps Yogi Adityanath should spend less time lecturing Karnataka on development", Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said in a sarcastic tweet following the UP reversal for the BJP. Aditya Nath has represented Gorakhpur in the Lok Sabha five times.

Ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, BJP leaders admitted the party was still reliant on th ppeal of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah to win elections. UP CM had also become BJP's chief vote campaigner with addressing rallies in Kerala, Karnataka and in hindsight it might have helped him if he had stayed in Uttar Pradesh and minded his own business.

On March 11 last year, the BJP state headquarters sprang with celebrations as the party returned to power after a 14-year gap.

The alliance between the two leaders Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav was stitched just before the elections and took the BJP by surprise. "Unity among the non-BJP parties has played a key role", he wrote.

Attributing the victory of SP to the support from Dalits, farmers, labourers, women and unemployed, Yadav said, "Governments which trouble people are brought down".

The West Bengal chief minister also congratulated RJD chief Lalu Prasad for winning the Araria Lok Sabha and Jehanabad Assembly bypolls in Bihar. It is said that the CM Yogi Adityanath has himself faced narrow wins in previous Lok Sabha elections because of strong voting from this community.

The SP was the runner-up in Gorakhpur many times, while it had won the Phulpur seat four times since 1996.

"The over-confidence and inability to understand the electoral understanding between the SP and the BSP led to the defeat", Yogi accepted.

Telagana Rashtra Samithi MP B Vinod Kumar said BJP's loss indicated a growing anti-BJP and anti-Congress sentiment among the masses, reported The Indian Express.

"By-poll results have given clear message that people are angry with BJP for its arrogance and misrule", he said.

Sayeed said that the voters in UP seem to have shot a warning to Yogi that they do not approve of inhuman encounters, medical negligence due to which hundreds of kids died in Gorakhpur, and the freaky saffron paintings throughout the state.
