Shimla, November 2

Acknowledging that the poll verdict was contrary to the party's expectations, Himachal CM Jai Ram Thakur said sympathy factor for Virbhadra Singh's family seemed to have worked for the Congress. At the same time, he pointed out that Congress' victory in the Mandi Lok Sabha constituency was slender and "not worth a celebration". Speaking to the media, he said the BJP would analyse the reasons for the 0-4 defeat so that it was better geared for the Assembly polls next year.

Will Introspect

Will ponder over the results. Some leaders stabbed the party in the back and worked against it. The issue will be looked into. — Jai Ram Thakur, CM , Himachal

"Congress' entire campaign was based on price rise, but we can't overlook the fact that inflation is a global phenomenon," he observed, admitting that anti-incumbency might have been a factor too.

"We will ponder over the bypoll results. Some leaders stabbed the party in the back and worked against the party candidates. This issue too will be looked into," he said, hinting at action against the dissidents.

"We have to admit the Congress played the emotional card to its advantage," he added.
