RJD leads by just 455 votes in Araria; BJP leads in Bhabua

RJD's Suday wins Jehanabad BJP's Rinki wins Bhabhua assy seat

The voting for bypolls in the Phulpur and Gorakhpur Lok Sabha seats of Uttar Pradesh and that for Araria Lok Sabha seat, and Jehanabad and Bhabhua assembly constituencies in Bihar were held on March 11, 2018.

The first, in Uttar Pradesh, arch rivals Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) have joined hands against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress candidates.

The by-elections are important because political parties, both ruling and opposition, have tried a new political experiment in these three bypolls to Lok Sabha seats.

Gorakhpur bypoll is a battle of prestige for the BJP as the parliamentary seat had been represented by Yogi Adityanath five times.

The RJD-Congress alliance is upbeat after a good voter turnout in Araria, Bhabua and Jehanabad and expressed confidence that the alliance candidates will win. After the by-election for three seats in Bihar, the preparations to elect candidates for the vacant seat has been completed in Araria. In absence of Lalu Yadav, who is behind bars in connection with two fodder scam cases, his son and leader of the opposition Tejashwi Yadav spearheaded RJD's poll campaign in Bihar bypolls.

► BJP leading in Bhabua with 23,640 votes.

# Samajwadi Party's Nagendra Pratap Singh Patel leading by 1437 votes with 7600 votes, BJP's Kaushlendra Singh Patel 6163 votes after round 3.

The death of RJD MLA Mundrika Singh Yadav necessitated the bypoll for Jehanabad seat, and his son Uday Yadav is contesting for the seat.

The counting will be done for 14 constituencies in which there will be 26 rounds.

In Bihar's Araria parliamentary by election 57 per cent polling was registered. The elections in Araria took place as the seat was vacated after the death of sitting RJD lawmaker Taslimuddin in September a year ago.
