All eyes had been focused on the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections with each party trying to out-do each other in campaigning. However, moving past the Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Rahul Gandhi, and BSP’s Mayawati, BJP has gone on to secure a historic win with a clear majority in UP.
Since the exit polls had hinted at a hung house, or a close competition between SP-Congress and BJP, the landslide win of BJP came as more of a surprise.
Here is how twitterati reacted:
