UP Bypoll Results: Akhilesh thanks Mayawati, lashes out at Yogi Adityanath

Supporters of Samajwadi Party in Gorakhpur on Wednesday. Alliance formation however will be a lot trickier in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections than they were in UP bypolls UP Bypoll Results: Akhilesh thanks Mayawati, lashes out at Yogi Adityanath

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath necessitated the bypolls after Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya vacated the Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats following their election to the state legislative council. The Left who suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of the BJP in Tripura, said the bypoll results show that the BJP is on the decline.

He started off by saying that he wanted to thank everyone and also thank BSP chief Mayawati for the alliance that the two parties stitched up before the bypolls. He added that the Congress is keen to rejuvenate the party in U.P.

BREAKING: BJP's lead in Gorakhpur now reduced to 1600. The #bjp held both seats of Phullpur and Gorakhpur - and Gorakhpur, in particular, was a seat the BJP had won seven consecutive times. "There is no reason why BSP and SP can not come together", he says. They might have managed to be impressively successful and thoroughly embarrassed the BJP. As a top Congress leader underlined, "at Sonia Gandhi's dinner, the collective prayer was for the victory of the Samajwadi candidate, and not for the Congress nominee". "It is for the BJP to look at the result with shock and dismay, while we look at it with great hope".

The rare tie-up between Akhilesh Yadav's SP and Mayawati's BSP is also being seen as a test case for a larger Opposition grouping before the 2019 general elections. No tactical mistake in fighting the two elections alone.

But what helped SP candidates is the fact that BSP agreed to support them. The victory of the alliance has sent alarm bells ringing in the BJP headquarters, and Amit Shah and other top leaders including Narendra #Modi are meeting to take stock of the situation. However, now the BJP is trailing on both the seats.

The BJP was beaten by the Samajwadi Party, which, for the first time since the early 1990s, had the support of its arch-rival, the Bahujan Samaj Party.

As results of by-elections in two Lok Sabha seats of Uttar Pradesh became clear on Wednesday, the ruling BJP held opportunism of Opposition parties responsible for the loss, and cited their last minute alliance. The swing away in Modi's own territory, Gujarat, was the first indicator - and these by-elections seem to confirm the Gujarat trend. BJP candidate Rinki Rani Pandey has won from Bhabhua. "In four years, BJP government is down to 271, losing its simple majority in Lok Sabha minus its allies - considering the fact that PM Modi has suspended Kirti Azad and virtually disowned their most truthful, fiercely independent Patna Sahib MP", Surjewala tweeted.
