The BJP's defeat in the Chitrakoot Assembly bypoll in Madhya Pradesh shows in which direction the wind is blowing and that the people are angry at the party, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav said here.
The BJP's defeat in Chitrakoot shows there is distrust and anger among the people. They now know the truth of the GST and demonetisation, he said.
"The result shows in which direction the wind is blowing. The wind of the BJP's defeat will reach Gujarat too," Yadav said.
Congress candidate Nilanshu Chaturvedi defeated the ruling BJP's Shankar Dayal Tripathi by a margin of over 14,000 votes today in Chitrakoot (MP).
Chaturvedi polled 66,810 votes as against Tripathi's 52,677 votes, returning officer A P Dwivedi said.
Around 65 per cent voting was recorded in the November 9 bypoll, necessitated following the death of sitting Congress MLA Prem Singh (65).
