Bihar bypolls: BJP leading in two seats, RJD in one

Uttar Pradesh & Bihar Bye-election 2018 Results Tomorrow Who Are Likely to Win Gorakhpur Phulpur Araria Jehanabad & Bhabhua Bypolls

The by-election to the Araria seat was necessitated by the death of sitting RJD lawmaker Mohd Taslimuddin.

The elections were seen as a litmus test for both the parties as it was the first electoral test to NDA in Bihar since Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's return to the alliance in July, while the RJD had to fight in the absence of its supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav. CM Nitish Kumar congratulated the winners and BJP leader Sushil Modi said that the party respected people's mandate.

The Samajwadi Party today strengthened its grip over Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats with latest trends showing its candidates establishing sizeable leads over their nearest BJP rivals, indicating a stunning reversal for the state's ruling party.

In a matter of hours, Tejashwi became the leader of the opposition from the deputy chief minister. Muslims account for over 41 per cent of Araria's electorate.

RJD's Krishna Kumar Mohan, also known as Suyad Yadav defeated the Janata Dal (United)'s Abhiram Sharma by 35,036 votes, according to news reports.

After sweeping the Lok Sabha elections in 2014 and the assembly elections a year ago, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) faced formidable rivals in the form of Samajwadi Party (SP) and BSP who stitched a last minute alliance in the by-polls.

Party leaders said Tejashwi had a foolproof strategy to reach out to his party's traditional voters in both the constituencies.

The JD (U) had also put up its candidate in 2014 elections who finished third behind the BJP. Dynamic security arrangements have been made for counting of votes.

BJP's Rinky Rani Pandey, who was contesting from the Bhabua assembly seat following the death of her husband and BJP MLA Anand Bhushan Pandey, won the seat for BJP. But the sympathy wave was not the solitary factor for giving ticket to Alam.

Despite the jailing of its star campaigner Lalu Prasad, the RJD on Wednesday won the Araria Lok Sabha and the Jehanabad Assembly seats while the BJP bagged the Bhabhua Assembly seat, officials said. "This ideology would break the arrogance of the saffron party", he said in another tweet.
