Saturday was a very unfortunate day for the Samajwadi Party as it was swept away in the state by BJP.
Shivpal Yadav, a master organiser and a grassroots leader of the party, said: "This is a defeat of arrogance not of the Samajwadi Party".

The counting across the five states of Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Goa, Uttarakhand and Manipur began at 8 a.m. this morning. After two month power tussle in the Yadav family, Akhilesh overcome all odds to get hold of the party. The agitated expelled leader also highlighted the incapabilities that ailed the party which also caused them a brutal defeat in the UP 2017 elections. SP's main soul is Mulayam Singh Yadav ji and Congress party failed to gauge that sentiment. Shivpal Singh, who won from the Jaswant Nagar constituency, took a swipe at Akhilesh, saying people had delivered a referendum on arrogant leaders, and not the party.
"In today's political scenario, people who rose to power due to dynasty rule like Rahul Gandhi ji, Akhilesh Yadav ji, Sukhbir Badal ji, Stalin ji and others, should introspect if the present Indian society is willing to accept dynasty politics", Singh added.
However, later on Sunday he said the onus of the party's defeat should not be put on his son.
"We were in a position to win the election and form the government on our own", he reiterated while addressing his partymen at Janeshwar Misra Trust office here in the afternoon.
