Victory in UP, U'khand is victory of nationalism, PM: Tiwari

Despite stiff resistance from his father and SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav, Akhilesh overcame the initial hiccups and allotted almost 100 seats to Congress - a decision which is now being called "fatal" for his party.

Incumbent chief minister Akhilesh Yadav-led SP and Rahul Gandhi's Congress have tied up and contested the elections but they only secured 18 seats and leading in another 38 seats (trends at 2 pm) whereas BSP received death blow with winning 8 seats and leading 16 (trends at 2 pm). This is what RaGa tweeted:He soon got a reply from the PM:As soon as twitterati saw Rahul Gandhi and Modi having a conversation on Twitter, they started trolling Rahul hilariously. Further, the bonding seen between Rahul and Akhilesh was not seen among the cadres of the two parties.

The Bhojpuri singer-actor-turned-politician also credited the BJP's victory in the UP and the Uttarakhand to hard work of the party workers and the campaign and electoral micro management by Modi and BJP president Amit Shah. The strategic Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance, which Mr Yadav entered into against the advice of his father Mulayam Singh Yadav, has taken a beating at the hands of the BJP. It seems the voters turn on the Congress in places where Rahul spearheads the party's poll campaign.

The young leader took it to micro-blogging site Twitter to send his best wishes to PM.

As Akhilesh Yadav goes into introspection mode to assess the likely causes of the SP-Congress alliance' defeat, he is also likely to face a tough time after his party's humiliating defeat as his rivals in party led by his uncle Shivpal Yadav will certainly question his leadership ability now.
