The Samajwadi Party has won the Ghosi Assembly seat and the BJP has lost it but the biggest loser in this bypoll is the Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party (SBSP) president, Om Prakash Rajbhar.
Rajbhar and his over-the-top statements during the campaign are now being blamed for the poor show of the BJP in the bypoll.
Rajbhar, who had claimed that Ghosi was his bastion and he could turn tables in the constituency without any effort, had completely taken over the campaign in the by-election.
Sanjay Nishad, another BJP ally, even advised Rajbhar to exercise restraint while speaking.
According to local BJP leader, Rajbhar antagonised the Yadav community in Ghosi when he declared that the brain of Yadavs begins working only after noon.
