New Delhi: The bypoll results for four Lok Sabha seats and 10 Assembly constituencies came as a blow to the ruling BJP. The Opposition parties on Thursday emerged victorious in 11 out of 14 bypolls while limiting the saffron party and its allies at just three.
They even snatched the high-profile Kairana Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh with a united force. RLD candidate Tabassum Hasan lead with 4,01,464 votes, while her nearest rival, BJP’s Mriganka Singh, got 3,52,173 votes.
While all this was happening, social media had a field day on Thursday.
Here are some good ones which we couldn’t resist sharing:

#bypolls Election Commission says EVM machines are faulty due to heat wave in Kairana!
Going by that logic, why the other electronic devices such as Refrigerator, AC or TV are not at fault!

#Bypolls Luckily Pandit Nehruji is not the cause of "too much heat" in EVMs.
Otherwise experts know that the micro-chips can sustain the heat -40deg to +150deg. pic.twitter.com/jtwydbzxSB

EVM are malfunctioning voting for BJP for any button. EC blames heat.
Haan EVMs are made of cheese ????#bypolls

So EVMs malfunction due to heat.
1. Does this mean they ‘malfunctioned’ in May 2014?
2. Will they ‘malfunction’ in May 2019?
3. Climate change is real?
4. EC has taken on the new job of being circus jokers?
First time as tragedy, second time as farce. #bypolls

"Kairana will bury BJP" — Tabassum Hasan (Winner of Kairana)
It had to be a Muslim. It had to be a woman. It had to be in UP. It had to be in Kairana.
I love India.
