The Bharatiya Janata Paraty (BJP) took a massive lead over its main rivals in Uttar Pradesh as the millions of votes cast in the staggered assembly election were counted. Here is a look what it exactly means for the state Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

# A big loss of face - both within the extended family as well as his party.

# The opposition camp within the party will strengthen. Madhukar Jaitley has already raised the voice. It will soon get shriller.

# His political acumen to identify the right alliance will come in for question.

# In case he remains ardent, the party may be headed for a split. Uncle Shivpal Yadav had already hinted at that.

# Mulayam Singh Yadav may be back in the stable taking charge of the party and that may mean greater role for step brother.

# His ambition for Delhi remains a distant dream but with age on his side he can wait.
