New Delhi: The results of the Lok Sabha elections-2024 surprised everyone. While the BJP has suffered a major setback in the results, the Indi alliance including the Congress is breathing a sigh of relief. Even though the BJP has not got a majority on its own, the NDA has crossed the magic figure of majority and can soon claim to form the government. On the other hand, the Indi alliance does not seem to have the key to power at the moment. However, this time the opposition will definitely be seen in a strong position in Parliament. Talking about the Lok Sabha elections, the results on some seats were such, which were not expected by either the ruling party or the opposition. We are telling about some such candidates and seats, whose results surprised everyone.

1. BJP's defeat in Ayodhya
Just four months ago, on 22 January, the grand Ram temple was inaugurated in Ayodhya. There was a Ram wave in the whole country. It was believed that the Ram temple issue would benefit the BJP a lot. But the results of the Lok Sabha elections changed this story. The BJP had to face defeat in the Faizabad Lok Sabha seat. Here the Samajwadi Party candidate won the election. Not only this, the BJP had to face defeat in the other four seats of Ayodhya Mandal as well.

2. Smriti Irani's crushing defeat in Amethi
Congress has made a comeback in Amethi, which has been considered the traditional seat of the Gandhi family for decades. Even though no member of the Gandhi family became an MP from here, Kishori Lal Sharma, considered close to the Gandhi family, defeated BJP candidate and Union Minister Smriti Irani by more than 1.7 lakh votes. In 2019, Smriti Irani defeated Rahul Gandhi in Amethi.

3. After Manipur violence, BJP suffers loss, Congress wins
Ever since the Manipur violence, BJP has been facing opposition there. BJP had to bear the brunt of this in the Lok Sabha elections as well. Congress has won both the seats in the troubled Manipur. Both the communities, Kuki living in the hilly areas of Manipur and Meitei living in the Imphal valley, voted for the Congress.

4. BJP opens account in Kerala
Even though BJP has faced defeat in the Hindi belt states, BJP has surprised everyone in some states of South India. BJP has opened its account for the first time in Kerala. Actor-turned-politician Suresh Gopi has added one more seat to BJP's kitty by winning the election from Kerala's Thrissur Lok Sabha seat.

5. The issue of Sandeshkhali did not translate into votes
Before the Lok Sabha elections, BJP had raised the Sandeshkhali controversy of West Bengal. From PM Modi to many other leaders tried to corner the Mamata government of Bengal on this issue. But the Sandeshkhali controversy had no effect on the Basirhat election results. On this seat, Trinamool Congress's Nurul Islam defeated BJP's Rekha Patra by more than 3.4 lakh votes. Rekha Patra was the main face of the protest in the Sandeshkhali case.

6. Chandrashekhar Azad won UP's Nagina seat on his own
The results of UP's Nagina Lok Sabha seat also surprised everyone. Azad Samaj Party chief and Dalit leader Chandrashekhar Azad has won from here by 1.5 lakh votes. The special thing is that Chandrashekhar contested the election from Nagina without anyone's support. He neither got the support of BSP nor Samajwadi Party.

7. Victory of Khalistani supporters in Punjab
The results of the Lok Sabha elections in Punjab also surprised everyone. Jailed pro-Khalistan campaigner Amritpal Singh and Sarabjit Singh Khalsa, son of Beant Singh (Indira Gandhi's assassin), have won the elections in Punjab.

8. Radicals jailed under UAPA win
While pro-Khalistan supporters won the Lok Sabha elections in Punjab, a jailed radical also won the election in Jammu and Kashmir. Engineer Rashid, jailed under UAPA in Baramulla, Jammu and Kashmir, defeated Omar Abdullah.

9. Congress stopped BJP from clean sweep in Gujarat
Congress has prevented BJP from making a clean sweep in Gujarat, which is considered a stronghold of BJP. Congress has won the Banaskantha seat of Gujarat, ending BJP's hopes of winning all the seats for three consecutive times.

10. 5 members of Yadav family won in UP
Samajwadi Party has performed brilliantly in UP. But it is worth noting that 5 members of Yadav family have won the Lok Sabha elections. Akhilesh Yadav has won from Kannauj, Dimple Yadav from Mainpuri, Aditya Yadav from Badaun, Akshay Yadav from Farrukhabad and Dharmendra Yadav from Azamgarh.
