BJP losing Gorakhpur, Phulpur in UP…

Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath flashes victory sign after casting his vote for local body elections in Gorakhpur

Votes in two UP's Phulpur and Gorakhpur parliamentary seats are being counted amid tight security.

The BJP is also trailing in Phulpur. Congress stands at an abysmal 2,386 votes.

The Samajwadi Party is ahead of the BJP by almost 14,000 votes in by-elections for Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur parliament seat, where a top official barred the media from entering the area where votes are being counted, in what is now a full-blown political controversy. Nishad is the leader of NISHAD party, which is headed by his father Sanjay Nishad.

The bypolls in UP were necessitated after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders Yogi Adityanath and Keshav Prasad Maurya were elevated as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister respectively after the party's victory in state Assembly elections. The results of the Phulpur and Gorakhpur Lok Sabha bypolls will be announced on Wednesday and the results can be significant in light of the 2019 general elections.

Confusion prevailed in the prestigious Gorakhpur Lok Sabha bypoll counting trend even as after three round the opposition Samajwadi Party candidate was reported to be leading by around 1523 votes.

Attacking the BSP and the SP, the chief minister claimed, "These parties are indulging in negative politics, politics of bargaining and politics of opportunism".

Despite nine rounds of counting getting over, the District Magistrate gave out only the results of the first round until 11:30, when the BJP had a narrow lead. Moreover, it will also be interesting to see whether Adityanath and Maurya, both stalwarts in their party, can transfer their support base to the new BJP candidates.

In Araria, the voter turnout was 57%, while Jehanabad and Bhabua saw 50% and 54% voting.

However, as of now, only the initial rounds of counting has been completed, and these are heavily influenced by postal votes.

In Gorakhpur, the lowest voter turnout of 33 percent was in Gorakhpur city, and the highest 47 percent in Sahjanwa and Campierganj.

Phulpur Bypoll: Samajwadi Party's Nagendra Pratap Singh Patel leading by 9924 votes with 87,272 votes, BJP's Kaushlendra Singh Patel second with 77,348 votes after eight round of counting. The Congress too has fielded a candidate.
