Voting for Araria Lok Sabha seat and Assembly Constituencies of Bhabua & Jehanabad

Bihar Lok Sabha bypolls Complaint filed against Bihar BJP chief Nithyanand Rai over ‘Araria will be ISI hub’ remark

The byelections on three seats are being seen as a popularity test for Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, as this is the first election since he broke away from RJD-Congress alliance and tied up with the BJP-led NDA. The results for the Araria by-elections will be declared on Wednesday, March 14.

The BJP has expressed confidence in winning the UP seats, especially the Gorakhpur Lok Sabha seat which was represented by Yogi Adityanath for 5 consecutive terms before he was appointed Chief Minister. You all may know that Mr. Alam is locked in a direct contest with the BJP's Pradip Singh who came second in the 2014 general elections but had won the seat in 2009. Sarfaraz Alam was JD (U) MLA from Jokihat Assembly segment of the constituency. Earlier this year the chief minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar stepped down from his post and broke up the alliance with Lalu Yadav and Congress and joined hands with BJP.

The Araria seat fell vacant after the death of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Mohammad Taslimuddin. Similarly, the death of RJD MLA from Jehanabad Mundrika Singh Yadav necessitated by-poll for the seat and his son Suday Yadav has been made candidate by the RJD. The party has fielded his widow Rinki Rani Pandey now for the election.

While the Uttar Pradesh constituencies fell vacant after Gorakhpur MP Yogi Adityanath became UP Chief Minister and Phulpur MP Keshav Prasad Maurya became deputy chief minister, all 3 Bihar seats fell vacant due to the death of their respective representatives.
