New Delhi: This is a shocker to BJP. The party lost all the 17 seats at the Panvel Agricultural body polls to PWP, Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP Alliance. While PWP won 15 seats, Congress and Shiv Sena bagged one seat each, respectively.
This is a humiliating loss to BJP as the party hoped for a clean sweep after the demonetization move as the party has been boasting that it is a masterstroke from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
According to political observers this is the start for the downfall of BJP as the party has been facing anger of people of majority sections. The currency notes scarcity has drawn ire of public.
