After the Uttar Pradesh Election results showed BJP getting 300+ seats, Sushil Kumar Modi and Lalu Prasad Yadav have got into a war of words on Twitter. Post the UP verdict, Modi in a taunting way asked Lalu, “How are you doing?”, to which he humourously replied “I am fine. Did you see that the decision of BJP of not letting you enter the state turned to be fruitful for them”. Even Modi was quick to respond. “Laluji, if you wouldn’t have abused Modiji in UP then SP could have won 2-4 seats more”.
Meanwhile, Home Minister Rajnath Singh described the BJP’s performance in assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand as “mega victory”, saying the party has changed the political narrative in the country with the win. “This is not a victory but a mega victory. The BJP has changed the political narrative of the country by touching new heights of success in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand,” he said here on the results of the assembly polls.

Singh said the BJP’s win in the elections is a win of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s credibility in the public, his able leadership and party’s commitment to good governance. “The credit of victory goes to organisational ability of our national President (Amit Shah) and the hardwork of party workers. We thank the people of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand for handing us a historic victory,” he said.
During the election campaign, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took it upon himself to lead the campaign for his party BJP and also sought votes in his name from the voters. It seems the voters were highly impressed by PM Modi’s growth-oriented policies while the so-called development claims of the Akhilesh Yadav government didn’t convince the voters. During the campaign, Modi had made several big promises, including a farm loan waiver as well as an end to ‘goonda-mafia-raj’ in the state, that prevailed during the previous government.

In 2012, Samajwadi Party got a clear mandate by winning 224 seats while Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party finished second with 80 seats. Counting of votes started at 8 AM today. The results of 2017 Assembly elections in the state must have come as a shocker for the Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav, who had joined hands with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi just a few days before the elections.
