Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath said on Wednesday evening that the BJP - which has lost key by-elections in Gorakhpur and Phulpur, two parliament seats it held - "failed to understand the significance" of a partnership scripted by the Samajwadi Party and Mayawati's Bahujan Samaj Party. It was "overconfidence," the chief minister said, also stating that his party will study why it lost and prepare a new strategy. It is a massive setback for the BJP; the two seats it lost today were vacated by Yogi Adityanath and his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya last year. In by-elections to Bihar's Araria parliament seat, the BJP lost to Lalu Yadav's RJD, which held the seat.
