Chitrakoot Bypoll: The two jabs that hurt most

Congress party workers in Chitrakoot were seen on roads with colours and drums.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya and MP BJP chief Nandkumar Chouhan had campaigned for the party's candidate.

The bypoll had to be held following the death of Congress MLA Prem Singh.

Voting for the Chitrakoot Assembly bypoll had taken place on November 9.

Many carried the national white-and-red flag as others set off flares and firecrackers, filling the air with red smoke. Others spoke of defending Polish Christian values and standing up to liberals, Britain's The Independent reported.

But voters handed Congress its biggest win ever in the "land of Ram".

"It is clear from the Chitrakoot victory, which comes after the party's victory in Ater Assembly bypoll a month ago, that MP wants to get rid of BJP's misrule", he said. With supporters coining a new slogan: "Chitrakoot mein lag gaya kaam, Jai Shri Ram Jai Shri Ram", MPCC chief Arun Yadav termed it as "a meaningful victory". He had night stay at Turra and Sarbhanga villages on both the days.

Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Ajay Singh said, "The exile of the Congress in the state has ended from the "taposthali" of Lord Rama". Accepting defeat, Chouhan tweeted that "public mandate was supreme in democracy". Nothing will come in the way of Chitrakoot's development. As per the reports, it seems now Congress will again rule on this seat. However, BJP and Congress were under the spotlight. In 2013, BJP's Surendra Singh Gaharwar had lost to Prem Singh by 12,000 votes. "It would be unfair to link this bypoll result to the next assembly polls".
