Politics of fatwa temporarily overpowered politics of development: Uttar Pradesh BJP chief on bypoll loss
State BJP chief Mahendra Nath Pandey said the BJP will review its performance in the Kairana bypoll to ascertain "what went wrong" for the party.
Fall of Gorakhpur, Yogi stronghold, and Phulpur in March followed by Kairana and Noorpur despite a robust campaign by the CM himself has put a question mark on Yogi’s leadership.
BJP underestimated unnatural SP-BSP deal; defeat people’s mandate, a lesson too, says Yogi Adityanath on party's loss in UP bypolls
The Uttar Pradesh chief minister termed BJP's bypoll defeats in Gorakhpur and Phulpur as a lesson to the party which would do an introspection.
Much is at stake both for the ruling party and the Opposition as the prestigious Gorakhpur and Phulpur seats go to poll on Sunday.
With just a day left for campaigning in bypoll bound Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats, the titans of all major political parties have put their might behind their candidates on Thursday.
Eight out of 32 candidates contesting the bye-elections have criminal cases registered against them.
It may be recalled that in 1993, SP-BSP had stitched an alliance in UP and formed the government with Mulayam Singh Yadav as CM.
