The Congress is not only facing a challenge from its rivals in the national capital, but also from a surge in votes in rural areas.
The Congress on Sunday declared victory in all three of the assembly segments – Chandrababu Naidu, Shri Rajya Sabha, and Lok Sabha – which were on the margins of the polls.
The BJP, which has seen its popularity plummet in the recent elections, lost a ground-breaking victory in the Chandrabadu Lok Sabha seat of Gautam Budh Nagar.
In the Lok Sabha constituency of Rajouri, the Congress lost a strong contest in the constituency of Vasant Kunj.
The defeat is a blow to the party that has been on the winning run in recent years, and is expected to be a significant blow to its fortunes.
Naidu has been trying to woo the voters in the states of Rajasthan and Maharashtra, which were traditionally BJP strongholds, and has promised a major policy overhaul in these states.BJP leader and Union minister Manish Tewari told reporters in Mumbai that the party will have to take a tough decision in the coming days on its next move.
« We are in a position to do a major reform of the economy.
If we cannot get the government to accept this then we will be unable to go ahead with the next two elections, » Tewirar told reporters.
Earlier, the BJP, with the support of the Congress, had launched a campaign against Naidus ‘ ‘s ‘Gopakshad’ agenda.
Naidus, a former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, had promised to make the state a cashless society by the end of the next fiscal.
But the Congress and its allies have made a big dent in the BJP’s image in the state.
They also managed to win the support in Chandrabam for the BJP-led NDA government in Delhi.
The BJP’s Narendra Modi was in a better position than any other party leader in the capital on Sunday, the party leader said.
Modi, who was inaugurated as the new Prime Minister of India on April 4, had won the polls for the first time and is the youngest person ever to hold office.
He has promised to bring the country back to prosperity and he has called for an aggressive policy to tackle corruption.
