Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa on Friday termed BJP`s victory in all three seats in the April 9 bypolls as a befitting reply to the "reckless
charges" hurled against his government by opposition Congress and JD(S).

"People have now given their reply to the allegations made against my government. Let the opposition learn from this and desist from making baseless allegations hereafter," he said.

BJP candidates won from the Jagalur, Chennapatna and Bangarpet constituencies.

Yeddyurappa also thanked the electorate and complimented the winners.

JD(S) state unit president and former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy said victory or defeat is not a permanent phenomena in politics. "We are not perturbed by the defeat," he said.

He alleged that BJP had won the bypolls using money power and said JDS would chalk out plans to strengthen the party.
