While it is party time at Pragathi Bhavan, those candidates who had lost are trying to keep their cadres close. Even as there are winners, others are bound to lose. The collosal loss of some Independents and small party candidates, came as shock. Most of them lost their deposits as well. Their cadres who had worked hard in the past couple of months became dejected and some of them became emotional. It is tough to lose. But then the only consolation perhaps is the fact they have not left their leaders for free 'beer' or 'biryani.'
