After a humiliating loss in the Karnataka by-elections, the BJP is on introspection mode. At the BJP's national executive meeting in Odisha held over the weekend there was introspection by senior leaders on the losses at Nanjangud and Gundlupet.
The party collected the booth wise voting pattern and are analysing the same. A meeting of the Karnataka BJP leaders will take place next week to analyse the loss. Before that, BJP's Karnataka president, B S Yeddyurappa will visit Mysuru, Gundluper and Nanjangud and speak with the party cadres in a bid to boost their morale. He would tell them to gear up for the 2018 assembly elections.
The BJP says that this is a huge set-back, but also adds that it is temporary. We are studying the voting pattern and finding out where we went wrong. Once the analysis is done, we would look to fix the flaws so that we can win both the constituencies in 2018, a BJP leader said.
