Bypolls - Setback to BJP, advantage Opposition - Sakshi Post

The bypolls were held for 33 assembly seats, 3 MP seats in 10 states and can hence been seen as representative of the national mood.

  • The BJP suffered reversals in Rajasthan, Gujarat and most importantly in Uttar Pradesh. In Rajasthan and Gujarat the BJP made a spectacular cleansweep in the Lok Sabha elections, held barely three months ago.
  • In UP, the party yielded lot of ground to the Samajwadi Party.  The party did well only in few seats.
  • In Rajasthan, where four seats were at stake, the Congress won three and the BJP one. In Gujarat, nine seats were at stake, of which the Congress did well in three.
  • Regional parties Samajwadi Party did well in UP, while Trinamool Congress continued its winning streak in West Bengal.
  • Of the three MPs seats, the BJP retained Vadodara, vacated by Narendra Modi comfortably. But, in Medak and Mainpuri, the TRS and the SP recorded handsome victories.
