CM said “It is people’s mandate and we respect it and I congratulate the winners of Gorakhpur and Phulpur”.
He further stated the BSP-SP alliance as a political compromise which has been formed to work against development.
He also said that the party would analyse the loopholes and would attempt to work on them. “We will work to make better plan”.
“Both the elections are a lesson for us” he added.
Samajwadi Party candidate Nagendra Singh Patel was on Wednesday elected to the Lok Sabha from Phulpur in Uttar Pradesh, defeating his nearest BJP opponent by 59,613 votes, an Election Commission official said.
Even in Gorakhpur, BJP accepted its defeat from the SP candidate.
