Yogi concede defeat in UP LS bypolls

Yogi concede defeat in UP LS bypolls

Yogi Adityanath and Maurya vacated the Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats respectively after being elected to the Uttar Pradesh Assembly.

While Praveen Nishad of SP won the Gorakhpur seat by 21,961 votes, party's candidate Nagendra Pratap Singh Patel defeated BJP's Kaushlendra Singh Patel by 59,460 votes in Phulpur LS bypoll.

Meanwhile, the Congress Party candidates in Phulpur and Gorakhpur had lost their deposits.

The fate of the third parliamentary seat being called today is Araria in Bihar, where too the BJP is trailing, this time behind Lalu Prasad Yadav's RJD. As per early trends, the BJP is behind the Samjawadi Party in both constituencies. When pressed further on what are his party's plans for the 2019 elections, he said there was "still a lot of time" for that. The SP candidate from Phulpur was ahead of BJP candidate Kaushalendra Patel.

RJD's convincing victories has set the stage for Tejashwi Yadav to play a pivotal role in state politics. The victory was attributed to the consolidation of OBC and Muslim voters in favour of the Grand alliance after the two major parties-JD (U) and RJD came together. "I am a proud member of Samajwadi Party and will continue to work for them". BSP supremo Mayawati had announced her party would back SP candidates in both constituencies in return for SP support for her party candidate in the Rajya Sabha biennial elections.

The Nishad Party holds considerable influence over the fisherfolk community in the belt, while the Peace Party is a force to reckon with among Muslims in the area.

The BJP will have to change its election strategy in a big way.

"People are now waiting for the 2019 general elections to teach the BJP a lesson", he said.

Sonia Gandhi's dinner Tuesday night was enough indication of a broad anti-BJP coalition and the results now, be in Uttar Pradesh or Bihar, provide a powerful rationale for achieving this objective.

"The Congress will look forward to "Navnirman" in Uttar Pradesh, it won't happen overnight", he added. On the other hand, with a vote share of 42%, BJP plus allies romped home with 73 (71 + 2) out of a possible 80 seats. Congress candidate Sureetha Kareem polled 18,844 votes. The by-poll losses would dent his image, particularly Gorakhpur, his well nurtured and nourished constituency which he has won for past five consecutive terms. In 2014, SP claimed five seats after mustering 22% votes. After all, he himself had recently dubbed the UP by-polls as "a dress rehearsal" for the next general elections, a remark which he must be ruing now.

When the BSP made a decision to back the SP candidates and put its cadres at work for winning the elections, the Congress did not pull out its candidates or followed suit to rally behind the SP candidates.
