SP victory in bypolls boost chances of a coalition in UP

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has lost bypolls in Uttar Pradesh because of its overconfidence, said the party's ally partner Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party.

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said his ties with the Congress will continue to be good but stopped short of saying if the two parties will fight the 2019 Lok Sabha elections together.

United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi too has become active to bring all opposition political parties, which are not part of the NDA, on a single platform ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

"Their alliance in Uttar Pradesh in 2022 looks a little hard as they have major stakes in the state and issues like leadership and chief minister's post are their Achilles heel", Husnain, who was with the department of Anthropology of Lucknow University said.

"Though a decision to this effect will be taken by the party high command of both the parties when the time comes, it has given hope to workers that this is the only way to counter the onslaught of the BJP", a Samajwadi Party leader said.

The Jat-dominated Kairana seat was a stronghold of Ajit Singh's RLD until 2009 Lok Sabha elections when BSP's Tabbassum Begum defeated Hukum Singh by over 20,000 votes.

"By-poll results in Gorakhpur and Phulpur were a referendum on the popularity of the Modi and Yogi governments".

Little after noon, Samajwadi Party workers started playing with colours and raised slogans hailing the SP-BSP alliance like "Bua-Bhatija Zindabad (hail aunt-nephew) and "Jai Akhilesh" (hail Akhilesh)".

"State deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, who had left the Phulpur seat, after becoming the member of the state legislative council in September last, told mediapersons in Allahabad", we didn't expect that BSP's vote will be transferred to SP in such a manner in this bypoll".
