    There is no doubts that the voters have rejectd to be taken for granted by poll-eve dispensers of quotas and other forms of state paternalism. And they have rejected the politics of symbolism favoured by arrogant and inaccessible power-wielders.

    There is also no second opinion that the Congress shameless attempted to play the quota card and sham identification with the Dalits by supping and sleeping in their homes, duly sanitised before entry or shedding crocodile tears for Batla house encounter with the Govt remaining steadfast that those killed were terrorists! The Muslims were not impressed with the forked tongue speak that of a snake!

    The resounding rejection of the Nehru Gandhi in their pocket boroughs is a clear indication that the current crop are mere pretenders to the yesteryear iconic attraction of the name!

    Therefore, with that scenario in place, would the SP be able to live up to the faith of the electorate?

    And how should the other contenders, to include the BJP and the Congress and not forgetting the loved and now departed Behenji from the scene, re-invent themselves to remain relevant.

    Gloom descends on Congress, BJP state offices after UP election results

    Bhopal: ``The writing on the wall is clear. National parties in Uttar Pradesh will have to restart constructing basic structure from grassroots,'' said BJP state president Prabhat Jha.

    ``Time has come to rethink and analyse why the regional parties have gained at the cost of national parties in Uttar Pradesh". After Uttar Pradesh election results, a pall of gloom descended on both the Congress and BJP head offices here on Tuesday.

    The BJP and Congress, however, sighed with relief that there was no regional party in this state that could pose a challenge for them in the 2013 assembly elections.

    Speaking to TOI, Congress' MLA and leader of opposition in MP Assembly Ajay Singh explained the cause of his party's debacle: ``It is clear that despite the best efforts and hard work on the part of our leaders, including AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi, we could not win enough seats. The number of seats may not have increased but Congress' vote percentage has certainly gone up".

    The ruling BJP, however, did not miss a chance to get at the Congress on Tuesday. ``We are concerned about our loss in Uttar Pradesh. But the Congress must realise that defeat of the party in the assembly constituencies of Amethi and Rae Bareilly is just the trailor", said Jha.

    It's true, people are smarter than what politicians think. Muslims rejected Congress false promises in Uttar Pradesh. While in Goa, a CAG report detailing massive illegal mining was rejected by a committee with ruling party members, but the voters of Goa rejected the corrupt in the end
