Bhojraj and Pudo were only in the poll battle as 12 candidates, including Congress party candidate Mangtu Ram Pawar had withdrawn their candidature.

BJP has thanked the voters for the victory.

However, PCC General Secretary Shailesh Nitin Trivedi said the election reflected the resentment of the voters.

Had there not been resentment, NOTA (Non Of The Above) would not have been in the second position after the BJP winner, Trivedi argued.

BJP got victory by murdering democracy in Antagarh, he said.
