Pro-Hindu party suffers shock poll defeat in two Indian states

After the Bharatiya Janata Party witnessed a huge defeat in the Gorakhpur and Phulpur by-polls in Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah took a dig at UP CM Yogi Adityanath advising him to focus on Uttar Pradesh and not "lecture" Karnataka.

The BJP's offering of vikas (development) is how the party explains its election victories. "The BJP has never fulfilled their promises".

"By-election results will not have any direct impact on Karnataka elections, apart from the fact that claims like the BJP is unstoppable or invincible..." This happened not by itself, but as a conscious strategy.

The by-poll results of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar have come as a big worry for the BJP because the two states together account for almost 120 of the total of 543 Lok Sabha seats.

On the all-important question of whether or not this alliance could continue for the Lok Sabha elections in 2019, he struck a more cautious note saying, "Wait and watch".

Congress communications incharge Randeep Surjewala said the "decisive defeat" and rejection of the BJP and the Modi brand would be a great morale booster and would pave the way for a resounding victory for the Congress in Karnataka.

State BJP president Mahendra Nath Pandey will be in Farrukhabad on to launch the programme of the anniversary celebrations.

"Even after massive popularity of Prime Minister Modi, this kind of result is astonishing".

"Lalu is in jail for corruption... and that could be a politics of vendetta".

Addressing a rally at Chandigarh to pay homage to BSP founder, late Kanshi Ram, on his birth anniversary, Mayawati said she helped the SP in the by-elections for the two LS seats in UP in order to teach the BJP a lesson. One of those MPs, Anupriya Patel, is also a minister in the Modi government.

Similarly, keeping the crucial Lodh vote in western UP in mind, the BJP brought back Kalyan Singh into its fold.

Counting has begun for the Phulpur Lok Sabha seat.

The Muslim leader wanted the BJP's archrival Congress to take proactive steps to bring together local parties to form a larger coalition against the BJP.

"There is enough possibility that the Lok Sabha elections too would be clubbed with Assembly elections of those states", she said, addressing a rally of party workers from Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh in Chandigarh.

Shivpal's congratulatory tweet came several months after he was locked in a bitter struggle for power with his niece Akhilesh Yadav. "The outcome has thrown down the BJP from the sky to the ground", the Sena said.
