New Delhi: The BJP's bad streak with bypolls continued on Thursday as it won only one Lok Sabha seat and one Assembly seat out of a total of 15 bypolls.

Of the 27 Lok Sabha bypolls that have been held across the country since the BJP's 2014 win, BJP has won just five. But 10 days before the bypoll results, BJP President Amit Shah had spoken about the party's bypoll jinx.

Speaking to reporters at the BJP headquarters on May 21, in the aftermath of the Karnataka government formation, Shah had taken a dig at the Congress.

"What is Congress celebrating? Are they celebrating their seats going from 122 to 78? Or their Ministers losing? Congress is now a PPP party - Punjab, Puducherry and Parivar (Family). Congress campaign was based on lies and divisive tactics. They even used muscle and money power,” he said.

Speaking about the BJP's bypoll downslide, Shah said, "Congress has found a new way of seeing defeat in victory. When we lost bypolls recently, Congress started talking about our losses even though they didn't win. We snatched 14 states from you. Is that bigger or losing 9 bypolls? Congress and JDS went against the mandate. This is an impure alliance.”
