Akhilesh meets Mayawati after Samajwadi Party's victory in bypolls

UP bypoll results show people don’t trust Yogi Adityanath government BJP Ram Gopal Yadav

While these estimates projected on the basis of different arithmetic combinations from different elections provide an understanding of the political challenge, they can not be said to the real estimate of actual polls that follow. Even in urban areas such as Allahabad west, the BJP was struggling to manage a lead over the SP.

The plenary session, starting with a meeting of the Steering Committee, will set the tone for the partys poll strategy in the Lok Sabha and state Assembly elections where it seeks to oust the BJP from power.

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi will present the partys vision and the way forward at its plenary session starting tomorrow, where the focus will be on workers instead of leaders this time. "These elections have once again demonstrated that the adulation for Modi has turned into anger".

It is of huge political significance that the morale-boosting victory for the Opposition comes just hours after leaders of 20 parties met at Sonia Gandhi's residence to draw up a blueprint for the 2019 elections.

The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister extended his gratitude to Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati for her support to his candidates.

Gorakhpuir has been a citadel of sorts for the BJP as Yogi Adityanath represented this seat for five terms before becoming the state's chief minister past year, necessitating a bypoll.

The Congress also claimed the BJP had "lost" its simple majority in the Lok Sabha. "According to my view, there should be an alliance in future and it will definitely happen". Party president Akhilesh Yadav told the media he was happy that people have responded to BJP's "misgovernance".

Sureetha Kareem of the Congress was a distant third with 18,858 votes.

BSP chief Mayawati, Samajwadi Party's Akhilesh Yadav and Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath.

While BJP's estranged ally Shiv Sena said the results will give a boost to the opposition, the Sharad Pawar-led NCP said it showed that a united opposition can defeat the BJP-led regime.

Congress has started stitching together alliances and hosted a dinner for opposition parties this week. Indeed, Trinamool Congress leaders said that while it would be hard to keep the Congress out of any opposition alliance, there was no way it could be accepted as the lead player. "But, at the same time, we do not want it to hog the limelight".

Several regional political leaders, like parliamentarian P. K. Kunhalikutty, believe the best way to face the BJP would be through a coalition of secular parties. Interestingly, the Congress had bullied the RJD to get this seat. The Congress made a decision to contest on its own when the Samajwadi Party rejected its claim. What transpired between the two is not yet known but it is understood that the two discussed the poll outcome in which their parties had together routed the ruling BJP. "But we ended up exposing our flanks".
