Bihar bypolls: NDA leading in all 3 seats Bihar bypolls: NDA leading in all 3 seats

Counting of votes for Araria Lok Sabha seat along with Bhabua and Jehanabad Assembly constituencies will be held on Wednesday. The seat was earlier held by Yadav's father Mundrika Singh Yadav, who passed away a year ago following prolonged illness.

Alam, who crossed over from JD (U) to Lalu Prasad's party RJD to contest the bypoll, is son of Taslimuddin.

This is the first electoral contest between RJD and Kumar-led Janata Dal (United), which split ways from the Grand Alliance and joined hands with the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) previous year.

Sarfaraz Alam was leading as vote count began in the morning.

PM; According to latest updates, BJP is leading in the Araria Lok Sabha constituency by 1749 votes after 10 rounds of counting. Araria went to polling on Sunday (March 11) along with two Assembly seats of Jehanabad and Bhabua. The polling was by and large peaceful, the election official said.

Phulpur, a seat earlier represented by former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru was won for the first time by the BJP in 2014 when Keshav Prasad Maurya, a former mayor of Varanasi, won the seat with a margin of 3.76 lakh votes. In Jehanabad, the battle is between RJD's Sujay Yadav and JD (U)'s Abhiram Sharma.

A total of 12 candidates are in contention at Jehanabad seat.

Fifty-seven percent votes were recorded in Araria while the voter turnout was 54.03 percent and 50.06 percent in Jehanabad and Bhabhua respectively. The seat had fallen vacant after the death of Mundrika Yadav of RJD.

Bihar, where votes are being counted for one Lok Sabha constituency and two Lok Sabha seats, seems headed for a status quo.

Along with the by-elections in Bihar, elections were also held in Gorakhpur and Phulpur, Uttar Pradesh.

The first, in Uttar Pradesh, arch rivals Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) have joined hands against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress candidates. Gorakhpur is the parliamentary constituency and stronghold of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
