SP leads in both Gorakhpur Phulpur LS bypolls Counting confusion in Gorakhpur

Gujarat had hinted at it. And now, the outcome of the latest round of by-elections in UP and Bihar has confirmed it. The party also won one (Jehanabad) of the two Assembly seats where by-polls were held earlier this month.

The loss in Gorakhpur came as a major embarrassment to the ruling party, as the seat was represented for five consecutive terms by incumbent Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

Over confident of its victory in the run up to polls, the party found it hard to explain the loss. He has so far got 212,050 votes as against BJP's Upendra Dutt Shukla who has so far polled 192,850 votes after 14th round of votes.

SP's Praveen Kumar Nishad is leading in the Gorakhpur constituency with 377,146 votes after 25 rounds of counting.

The first by-poll shock for BJP came in from MadMaran brothers discharged in telephone exchange casehya Pradesh's Ratlam constituency in November 2015.

"They have been making tall promises but not delivering on the ground", he said, explaining why the voters appeared to have turned away against the BJP so dramatically in these two seats since the 2014 Lok Sabha battle.

In 2014, the BJP stunningly won 71 of the 80 Lok Sabha seats while one of its allies secured two. If, as is highly likely, the Congress comes on board, UP could well spell doom for the BJP in 2019. "The by-election results indicate the success of such a platform", Trinamool Congress leader Derek O'Brien said.

Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday said the BJP's defeat in the Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha bypolls was the result of not keeping the promises the party had made to the people of Uttar Pradesh.

The BJP lost the Gorakhpur seat to the SP by a margin of 21,961 votes. Today, journalists as well as party workers were forced out of the counting centre by the District Administration. The TDP has already withdrawn its ministers from the government while others like Ramvilas Paswan, the eternal alliance hopper, may follow suit.

However, the Congress claimed that the BJP had "lost" its simple majority in the Lok Sabha. The party retained the seat in the by-poll.

CPI MP D. Raja said the results will have an impact on all secular democratic forces, which should evolve a suitable electoral tactical line keeping the objective of defeating the BJP. Who else could be the alternative to BJP in Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh except the Congress, they asked.
