Lok Sabha Election Results BJP Smriti Irani Congress Kishori Lal Sharma UP Amethi Defeat


Lok Sabha Elections Results: After conceding a defeat at the hands of Congress candidate Kishori Lal Sharma from Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi Lok Sabha seat, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Smriti Irani on Tuesday recounted her time in Amethi, where she defeated senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in 2019.

On Tuesday, Kishori Lal Sharma emerged as a giant killer by defeating Irani by a margin of over 1.67 lakh votes from Amethi, the bastion of the Nehru-Gandhi family in Uttar Pradesh. According to the Election Commission, Irani bagged 3,72,032 votes, while Sharma polled 5,39,228 votes. The BSP candidate got 34,534 votes.

In a post on X, Smriti Irani said, “Such is life… A decade of my life going from one village to another, building lives, nurturing hope & aspirations, working on infrastructure ― roads, naali, khadanja, bypass, medical college and more. To those who stood by me through loss and victory, I am forever grateful. To those celebrating today, congratulations. And to those asking, “How’s the josh?” I say- it’s still high, Sir.”

Meanwhile, speaking to reporters in Amethi following her defeat, Irani said, “I express special gratitude to all the supporters and workers of the BJP who served the party with full hard work and dedication. I got the privilege of fulfilling the 30-year-old demands of the Lok Sabha constituency, from the drains in the village to the bypass and medical college,” as quoted by news agency PTI.

She also expressed “special gratitude” to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for completing the work of 30 years in the short span of five years. “I congratulate the Modi-Yogi government that won the elections. I hope that with the devotion we served the people by going to every village, Amethi will continue to be served in this way every day,” she said. Irani said the BJP will be strengthened further.
