BSP alliance will hamper country's progress: Adityanath

  • SP BSP workers celebrate in Allahabad as the Samajwadi Party inches towards victory in a by-election on Wednesday

The by-elections in Bihar were seen as a referendum on Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's decision previous year to dump Lalu Yadav and the Congress and partner with the BJP. The BJP also put in a middling performance in Bihar, where it won one seat and saw its alliance lose two. It said the BJP now had 271 members, minus the two rebel MPs, Kirti Azad and Shatrughan Sinha.

He added that the BJP will now have to change its strategy as its campaign was centred around Adityanath.

The Nehru-Gandhi dynasty's Congress party, which ruled India for most of the seven decades after independence before being thumped by Modi in the last general election 2014, also seized on the latest setbacks for the BJP.

What else Akhilesh Yadav said? This incident was raised in the ongoing sessions in both Uttar Pradesh Assembly and in Lok Sabha by the opposition parties. The party chiefs of both the leaders were together for about 20 minutes.

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

The BJP's Rinki Pandey won by over 15,490 votes over Sambhu Patel of the Congress, an RJD ally, in Bhabhua.

Amid beating of drums and distribution of candies, the victorious Nagendra Patel not only thanked the people of Phulpur for his victory but said he also had the blessings of "behenji" Mayawati along with his own leader Akhilesh Yadav. In the by-election, BSP supremo Mayawati had extended her support to Samajawadi Party and did not field BSP candidates on Phulpur and Gorakhpur seats.

Attributing the victory of SP to the support from Dalits, farmers, labourers, women and unemployed, Yadav said, "Governments which trouble people are brought down". Party president Akhilesh Yadav told the media he was happy that people have responded to BJP's "misgovernance".

A simple equation between two political opponents, the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) helped polarization of anti-BJP voters.

"Together We are fighting".

Both the Lok Sabha constituencies voted on Sunday.

Rao said the JDS was not committed to any ideology, recalling that Deve Gowda's party had earlier joined hands with the BJP to form the government.

Still, the BJP expected to win the seats but in the election which though having a low turnout has ended in the defeat of the BJP. It was senior Nishad's caste and community alliances with parties like the Peace Party and the Apna Dal (Krishna Patel faction) past year at the time of assembly elections that seems to have helped the son sail through this time, Praveen also took care of the temple sentiments in Gorakhpur, visited Goraknath Mutt, along with his father and SP district President Prahlad Yadav. "This is the victory of our common ideology", he said, while speaking to reporters. Lalu Prasad's RJD retained the Araria Lok Sabha seat where its nominee Sarfaraz Alam beat BJP's Pradeep Kumar Singh by over 60,000 votes, in a set-back for the JD (U)-BJP alliance, which went to the hustings for the first time after Nitish Kumar returned to the NDA fold.

It's a major surprise for Yogi Adityanath, who held the Gorakhpur situate for five terms as a BJP official, and drove the gathering's effort for the by-races, holding various mobilizes and roadshows.

The saffron party was left red-faced after it was trounced in its own backyard, while also failing to break the jinx of repeated losses in Parliamentary by-elections this year.

The BJP's "2017-18 report card". Uttar Pradesh bypolls of Gorakhpur and Phulpur mean a great deal in the larger scheme of things.
