"We want to thank the people that at such a time, they have supported the Samajwadis and the direction in which the SP wants to take the state," Akhilesh said.

Senior cabinet minister Shivpal said that the people have voted against communal forces and for development. "In Lok Sabha elections communal forces lured the people, but now they are aware with the facts," he said.

SP has won the Thakurdwara Assembly seat and was leading in eight others, while the BJP was ahead in two seats in Uttar Pradesh where bypolls were held for 11 Assembly seats and one Lok Sabha seat.
