State BJP general secretary Vijay Bahadur Pathak, who is in Bhadoi in connection with the programme, told reporters that the party was not so concerned about the by-poll defeat and has now geared up afresh to woo its rank and file.
The loss at Gorakhpur, which Adityanath had won for the past five consecutive terms since 1998, has shocked the BJP.
Besides the over-confidence of the BJP, the success of the 2004 Lok Sabha experiment can be traced to the untiring efforts of the Left to stitch a coalition under the leadership of the Congress. "Barely a year ago, the BJP had won the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls with a record 325 seats". The Gorakhpur seat, until recently, was represented by chief minister Yogi Adityanath. Former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav also graced the event and said the BJP was a leader in spreading casteism.
The BJP had got its first jolt in November 2015 when it lost Ratlam in the by-election. The fact that the party lacks regional leaders of stature in UP and Bihar who can mobilise the cadre and public opinion is once again reaffirmed in the by-poll verdicts. Yogi said that the alliance between SP and BSP has caused the defeat. "The BJP is now free from any compulsions to embark on the path of expanding footprints, besides exploring fresh political partnerships", sources added. The Opposition was indeed fractured in 2014 but stood no chance even if it had joined hands because the BJP gathered over 50 per cent of the votes in both constituencies.
The results "prove the people of India are fed up with the BJP government's fake promises, corruption and anti-people policies", he said. She called the SP-BSP coming together, "a corrupt alliance with a lust for power".
The ruling partys candidates in the two constituencies lost to the Samajwadi Party (SP), triggering a debate on whether political outfits opposed to the BJP could forge a mega alliance before the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. "All this shows that the BJP is losing ground", it said.
Though the BJP's winning juggernaut continues in the states - thanks to the sole campaigner Prime Minister Narendra Modi, its winning strategy, the BJP national president Amit Shah and strong networking at the grassroots - all is not well for the saffron party ahead of the 2019 Elections. "Uttar Pradesh was known for pothole-filled roads, poor condition of electricity supply but our government has worked tirelessly to change all that in last 12 months", Adityanath said. He said: "If they can't see the reality, it is their immaturity".
