New Delhi, March 14 (IANS) Even "a partial unity" among opposition parties is enough to defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), former central minister Sharad Yadav said on Wednesday.

He was commenting on the Lok Sabha by-election results from Uttar Pradesh, where the Samajwadi Party has taken an unssailable leads in both the Gorakhpur and Phulpur constituencies, as well as in Bihar where a Lok Sabha and two Assembly seats voted.
