Lucknow: The BJP achieved a stunning victory on Saturday in Uttar Pradesh and returned to power in the state after a 14-year gap during which regional parties such as the SP and BSP had held sway.

The BJP, which had just 47 seats in the outgoing Assembly, garnered 40 percent vote share in the most riveting contest seen as a game-changer and a virtual referendum on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's popularity and demonetisation.

The victory triggered widespread celebrations all across the country's most populous state as well as at the BJP headquarters in Delhi.
