NEW DELHI: The bypoll results in 13 states and one union territory have shown mixed results. A revival for the Congress is seen in Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan while the BJP and its partners are seen performing well in Madhya Pradesh and the northeast.

RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav was involved in an intense campaigning for his party after 4 years but that hasn’t helped the party win the Tarapur constituency in Munger and Kusheshwar Asthan in Darbhanga. The Trinamool Congress has snatched 2 assembly seats from BJP, retained 2 in West Bengal bypolls. In Asssam, BJP and its allies have won all the 5 seats.

Indian National Lok Dal leader leader Abhay Chautala has won Haryana’s Ellenabad bypoll by defeating BJP’s Gobind Kanda, brother of controversial MLA Gopal Kanda, by a margin of over 6,000 votes. The win assumes significance as Abhay Chautala’s estranged brother Ajay and his son Dushyant’s Jannayak Janata Party is in alliance with the BJP in Haryana. Here’s what Abhay Chautala had to say after his victory from Ellenabad seat today.

Congress’s Pratibha Singh won the Mandi Lok Sabha bypoll in Himachal Pradesh by a margin of 8,766 votes against rival Brigadier Kushal Thakur of BJP. The bypoll was necessitated after the death of two-time BJP MP Ram Swaroop Sharma. Two-time MP Pratibha Singh contested the bypoll seeking votes in the name of her late husband Virbhadra Singh, who was a six-time Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister. Sympathy votes coupled with issues of inflation and farmers’ agitation seem to have paved way for Pratibha’s electoral success in Mandi.

The three seats where Lok Sabha bypolls were held are Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Mandi in Himachal Pradesh and Khandwa in Madhya Pradesh. Of the 30 constituencies, five are in Assam, four seats in West Bengal, three each in Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Meghalaya, two in Bihar, Karnataka and Rajasthan and one seat respectively in Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Maharashtra, Mizoram, Nagaland and Telangana.

Of the 29 Assembly seats, the BJP had clinched around half a dozen seats, the Congress won nine, the rest being held by the regional parties.
