Elections results 2017: List of prominent winners and losers

| Last Updated:

New Delhi:

Recently concluded Assembly elections turned into a virtual referendum on Modi’s popularity and demonetisation in politically important Uttar Pradesh and Uttrakhand.  The BJP decimated ruling SP, its alliance partner Congress and Mayavati’s BSP in UP.  

While in Uttrakhand, a similar feat was achieved and Congress CM Harish Rawat  could not even save his own seat and BJP won 57 out of 70 seats.

Congress too, crushing AAP’s hopes secured a much needed win in Punjab for its revival.  The party also emerged as the single largest party in Goa and Manipur which threw up a hung Assembly.
