The bye-elections have changed India's political landscape for over four decades now.

Terming the BJP's loss in the Gorakhpur Lok Sabha bypoll a "defeat of ego and arrogance", the Shiv Sena on Friday launched a fresh salvo at its ally, saying the party's strength in the Lower House of Parliament will come down by at least 110 seats in the 2019 general elections.

It is a setback for the BJP on many accounts, after the impressive win in Tripura in the North-East. Both in Phulpur and Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh as well as in Araria in Bihar, the BJP has lost to an opposition that was supposed to be down and out.

The results have laid a road ahead for the anti-BJP forces. Decimated electorally, bitter arch rivals Samajwadi Party-whose support base comprises Yadavs and Muslims-and the Bahujan Samaj Party with a huge following among Dalits, wrecked the BJP's electoral calculations.

The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) allies LJP and Akali Dal on Friday cautioned the BJP, saying the 2019 Lok Sabha elections could take a hard turn. The saffron-clad Yogi Adityanath, who has never lost the Gorakhpur seat since 1991, became the state Chief Minister. Besides, in Maharashtra, its MP from Bhandara-Gondiya Nana Patole-defected and joined the Congress. After the list Lok Sabha polls on 2014 there were 20 bye election in the country and BJP could win only three.

"The Akali Dal is one of the oldest allies of the BJP". The combined vote shares of both parties in 2014 in Araria were greater than that of.

Even in Bihar, Nitish Kumar and Sushil Modi could not defeat Lalu Prasad Yadav.

"The fate of the Congress is now totally in the hands of these two parties". The downward trend started with the Gujarat Assembly elections where an urban-rural divide was clearly discernible, though the BJP managed to retain power.

Chirag Paswan, an Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) MP and son of Union minister Ramvilas Paswan, said that allies were upset and if it is not addressed, the Lok Sabha polls could be a hard game. Adityanath represented Gorakhpur five times in the Lok Sabha, and it went vacant in 2017 when he was elected to UP Assembly to take over as the Chief Minister of the state.
