Prime Minister Narendra Modi today hailed the “impressive performance” of the BJP in the assembly by-polls held in various parts of the country. He thanked the people for their “unwavering faith in politics of development and good governance”. 

This is what he tweeted:

In the by-polls held on Sunday last, the BJP won in Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Assam, according to the results declared. There was some solace for the Congress in Karnataka where it won both the seats. 

The by-polls were held in nine Assembly constituencies in seven states, besides the Srinagar parliamentary seat. Two seats each are in Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh and one each in West Bengal, Assam, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh and Delhi.
