The AAP and the Congress attacked the performance of the member of Parliament after the BJP lost each of the five assembly seats that are located in the Hamirpur district of Union minister Anurag Thakur. According to AAP MLA Naresh Balyan, the BJP wave is so strong that not even a Union minister could save his booth, referencing his “Goli maro” speech in Delhi in 2020.
BJP lost all 5 seats in the home district of abusive minister Anurag Thakur. He could not even save his booth. Such is the wave of the BJP. They are celebrating after winning in their stronghold so that people do not understand that they lost in two out of three paces,” Naresh Balyan tweeted.
“Keeping Satyendar Jain in jail for no crime, BJP asks why AAP lost the wards in his constituency. But no one asks why BJP lost in Anurag Thakur and JP Nadda’s Himachal Pradesh even after putting all strength,” the AAP leader added.
Congress’s Gaurav Pandhi said Congress won all the seats when PM Modi campaigned and the party wiped out BJP in many districts. “BJP scored zero in district Hamirpur, home district of Union Minister Goli Maro wala Anurag Thakur,” he tweeted.
With a vote share of 43% and 40 seats in the legislature, the Congress took control of Himachal Pradesh. 25 seats were won by the BJP, and three by independent candidates.
Anurag Thakur on Thursday said he accepts people’s mandate in Himachal Pradesh. “We fully respect the mandate given to the BJP in Himachal Pradesh. New dimensions of development were established in Himachal Pradesh under the leadership of Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur and we hope that the new Congress government will also be dedicated to the development of Himachal,” he said.
