Temple cities of UP rejected BJP

Lucknow: Temple cities of UP like Mathura, Kashi, Faizabad and Ayodhya, which were considered traditional stronghold of the BJP, totally rejected the party in the recently concluded general elections. These cities have been on BJP’s agenda for long. VHP has also been harping on liberating these cities from encroachments [of Muslims]. The voters of these parliamentary constituencies who used to cast their votes on religious lines, this time round they totally rejected BJP candidates.

BJP candidate from Faizabad constituency (Ayodhya is also a part of Faizabad parliamentary constituency) Lalloo Singh, faced a humiliating defeat by BSP candidate, Mitra Sen Yadav. BJP UP president Vinay Katiyar, who was formerly associated with Bajrang Dal had won from Faizabad on BJP ticket in 1999. This time he tried his luck from Lakhimpur Kheri and was defeated. 

Similarly in Varanasi, from where BJP candidates had won continuously 1991, 1996, 1998 and 1999, parliamentary elections, BJP candidate, Shankar Prasad Jaiswal was defeated by Congress candidate Rajesh Mehra. In Mathura, which is considered a stronghold of BJP and from where BJP candidates had won the last five parliamentary elections, the BJP candidate was defeated by Congress candidate Manvinder Singh.
