BJP loses Panchayat Polls in PM Modi's Varanasi

Bharatiya Janata Party faces defeat in prime minister Narendra Modi's constituency Varanasi and state chief Laxmi Kant Bajpai's constituency Meerut in the Uttar Pradesh civic polls.

The ruling Samajwadi Party won the polls with a tally of 60 seats out of possible 74 after Thursday's voting. The party, which had won 36 out of 38 seats, which had been decided without contest, won 24 more after the voting. BJP could only win the five seats in western UP out of its total tally of seven.

UP minister Shivpal Pal claimed that the results are an indication towards what the trend will be in the state polls next year. "The large-scale victory of the Samajwadi party is reiteration of the people of the state that they are with the party and would vote it again in 2017 assembly elections", he said.
