Chitrakoot Assembly bypoll: Congress candidate Nilanshu Chaturvedi wins by over 14000 votes

The Congress on Sunday won the Chitrakoot bypoll in Madhya Pradesh with its candidate Nilanshu Chaturvedi defeating his BJP rival Shankar Dayal Tripathi by a margin of 14,133 votes.

The Chitrakoot bypoll, which was necessitated following the death of Congress MLA Prem Singh, saw around 65 per cent voting on November 9. "The winds of change are in the air".

Right-wing nationalists march on Poland's independence day
Independence day is taken seriously in Poland, which was wiped off the map for over 120 years prior to 1918. Polish nationalists carry a banner translating to "we want God" during a march in Warsaw.

The Congress' communication chief Randeep Surjewala said the victory signalled the change in political mood in the country.

Snatching a morale-boosting victory a year ahead of the assembly elections in MP, Congress overcame a high-octane BJP campaign, and defeated the saffron party in two places where CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan had stayed for the night and also at the husting of Tripathi. In 2003, when the BJP formed Government with thumping majority, Congress had wrested this seat and similar was the situation in 2013.
