BJP headquarter in Delhi wears deserted look

New Delhi, Nov 8 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) headquarters here wore a deserted look on Sunday following the party’s resounding defeat in the Bihar assembly polls.

Though no senior leader of the party was present at the office, a few spokespersons and local leaders were heard justifying the defeat.

“Several leaders had come to the office in the morning, including Ravi Shankar Prasad. But as the results started moving against us, they left,” said Praveen Singh, a local party worker.

“Ladoos and several other types of sweets were ordered to celebrate. However, looking at the poll result trends, all the orders were cancelled,” he told IANS.

The party office at 11, Ashoka Road in Lutyen’s Delhi also had made several other arrangements, including dozens of large screens and lunch arrangements, in anticipation of the party’s victory. These went waste.

A few leaders, including spokesperson Sambit Patra and Rajya Sabha member Vijay Goel, were speaking to the TV channels over the defeat but other leaders present in the office avoided the media.

Naman Tewati, a BJP leader from Haryana, told IANS that the people of Bihar were committing a blunder by bringing Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad back to power.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar-led Grand Alliance of the Janata Dal-United, Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Congress, scored a stunning victory on Sunday in the assembly elections, dealing a major blow to the BJP.
