Everything was expected. This ignorant politicians are shown their true place by public. I feel bad for Arun Jaitley and Shahanawaz Hussain.

Jaitley and Hussain are one the finest politicians from BJP. They should have won atleast.

It was also disheartening to see Arun Jaitley to loose :( .. However, he is still a Rajyasabha MP.. Hope he becomes the law minister of India :)
