State Home Minister Dr. Narottam Mishra also blamed the party leaders for the party’s defeat and said, “Damoh we have not lost, we have been deceived by deceit.” This time, we have lost the battle with the Jaichands of our house. The Congress should not be too happy over Damoh’s victory. Kamal Nath should also reflect on what the Congress has eliminated in the entire country.
BJP state president Vishnu Dutt Sharma said on Damoh’s defeat that we accept public opinion in the Damoh by-election. Congratulations to Congress candidate Ajay Tandon. Our workers worked tirelessly till the booth in the Damoh by-election. I thank them for this. We are not to be discouraged by the results but to move forward with a resolve to further strengthen the organization. Also, the local workers of Damoh will sit down and review the reasons for the failures in depth.
