Congress candidates contesting in Uttar Pradesh bypolls lost their deposits but their party president Rahul Gandhi seemed happy with the Wednesday results.

Expressing himself on Twitter, Congress president Rahul Gandhi wrote, “The results prove that voters are angry with BJP and they will vote for the non-BJP candidate who is most likely to win.”

The Samajwadi Party registered stunning victories in the Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha bypolls, which were held by Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath and deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya. In both seats, Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party supported the SP candidates.
