Every election witnesses the rise and fall in fortunes of some prominent candidates belonging to different political parties.

Today’s results of five state assemblies were no different. On one hand, many prominent candidates successfully retained their seats while some others were forced to bite the dust in these elections.

The BJP created history in Uttar Pradesh by winning more than three-fourth seats in the state Assembly. It was almost a repeat of its 2014 performance when the party had won 73 out of 80 seats along with its ally Apna Dal.

The BJP alliance, riding on PM Modi’s huge popularity, is all set to win around 325 out of 403 seats in the state Assembly this time. 

However, even this massive Modi wave, rather the Modi Tsunami, could not save either former state BJP President Laxmikant Bajpai who lost from Meerut or Mriganka Singh, the daughter of BJP MP Kukum Singh, who lost elections from Kairana.

In Uttarakhand, Chief Minister Harish Rawat had to face ignominious defeats from both Haridwar (rural) and Kichcha assembly constituencies. While the BJP is all set to win 57 out of 70 seats in the state, its state president Ajay Bhatt was trounced  in Ranikhet constituency.

In Punjab, the Congress proved most of the pollsters wrong by registering a spectacular victory. However, its state president Capt Amarinder Singh lost to Prakash Singh Badal from Lambi constituency although he emerged victorious in Patiala.

The AAP not only failed to form the government in Punjab, its prominent face Bhagwant Mann also lost from Jalalabad constituency. Even former Army chief General JJ Singh who contested on Akali Dal ticket had to face defeat against Captain Amarinder Singh from Patiala.

Goa witnessed a neck-to-neck fight between BJP and Congress. However, chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar and most of his cabinet colleagues surprisingly lost elections from their respective constituencies.  

In the North East, Manipur is also heading for a hung Assembly with Congress emerging as the single largest party with 28 seats followed by BJP at 21.

However, the most surprising result was the defeat of human rights activist Irom Sharmila who could manage mere 90 votes against the Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh from Thoubal Assembly constituency.
