“The truth is BJP would have lost more seats in Uttar Pradesh. I thank the people of Ayodhya, you have seen the pain of Ayodhya time and time again. They were not given adequate compensation for their land. Gaya, injustice was done. Their land was not acquired according to the market value, you took away their land by force, you destroyed the poor for a sacred thing. “That’s why I think the people of Ayodhya and surrounding areas voted against the BJP,” he said.

Meanwhile, newly elected Samajwadi Party MP Odhish Prasad Singh said the BJP lost because it destroyed the honor of Lord Ram.

He said, “Bharatiya Janata Party has done politics in the name of Ayodhya. BJP has destroyed the prestige of ‘Marida Prashotham Ram’. There is inflation, there are no jobs under his (BJP) rule.” “They have disrespected our youths, farmers.” PTI
