A BJP official said the orders for laddoos and firecrackers were placed early in the morning after initial trends showed they were surging ahead.

However, the order was cancelled after the later trends showed the party was slipping.

Most of the flags and firecracker remained unsold at the stall outside the BJP office here.

Raushan Shah, a shopkeeper, said: “I had brought these firecrackers and BJP flags worth Rs.10,000, but now after they are defeated nobody is buying them.”

“I wish I had brought JD-U or RJD flags like my younger brother. I am now moving to the JDU office to sell my firecrackers,” said Raushan, 16.
