The Samajwadi Party has slipped into the lead as votes are counted in by-elections for Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur parliament seat, where a top official has barred the media from entering the counting centre in what is now a full-blown political controversy. In Phulpur, SP Nagendra Patel is leading by 12,000 votes with his opposition candidate Kaushalendra Singh Patel.

In Gorakhpur, after five rounds, Samajwadi Party is leading in by 3,760 votes with 74,077 votes against BJP's candidate who has 70,317 votes.

The key candidates in Gorakhpur bypoll are BJP's Upendra Shukla, Congress' Suhita Chatterjee Kareem and Samajwadi Party's Praveen Nishad. It will also test the recently formed electoral arrangement between the two arch-rivals - Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP).

The tension and the importance of the elections can be understood from the fact that Gorakhpur District Magistrate Rajeev Rautela is himself present at the counting centre to monitor the proceedings and to maintain law and order.

In both the Lok Sabha seats, the SP candidates supported by the BSP and other secular parties are giving tough fight to the BJP.

Phulpur and Gorakhpur Lok Sabh bypolls were held on March 11 and counting was underway on Wednesday.

"The voters will reject this opportunistic, unethical and unholy alliance", he had said.

Ten nominees were in the fray from Gorakhpur, while 22 candidates contested from Phulpur. BJP: 43,456 votes, SP: 44,979 votes.

The Bharatiya Janata Party has taken an early lead in Gorakhpur Lok Sabha constituency while the Samajwadi Party is leading in Phulpur. Before him, his mentor Yogi Avaidyanath was MP from the seat.

Gorakhpur Bypoll: SP's Praveen Kumar Nishad leading with 29,218 votes, BJP's Upendra Dutt Shukla at a close second with 29,194 votes. According to the Election Commission, there are 1.96 million (19.61 lakh) voters in Phulpur parliamentary constituency, while the Gorakhpur Lok Sabha seat has a 1.95 million (19.49 lakh) electorate. In the Bhabua and Jehanabad Assembly constituencies in Bihar, where by-polls were also held, the voter turnout was 54.03 per cent and 50.06 per cent respectively, he said.
