Maha BJP downplays Uddhav camp's victory in Andheri (East) bypoll; NCP taunts ruling party

Bharatiya Janata Party's Mumbai unit chief Ashish Shelar on Sunday said Rutuja Latke of the Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) won the Andheri (East) Assembly bypoll here because his party did not field a candidate against her. Speaking to reporters, he said the Thackeray-led Sena could not increase its vote share despite having the support of the Congress and National Congress Party (NCP).Congratulating Latke, Shelar said, "Had BJP contested the election, they (Maha Vikas Aghadi combine) would have lost for sure." 

Meanwhile, Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrashekhar Bawankule also downplayed the victory of the Thackeray camp, claiming that the result was a foregone conclusion the moment his party decided not to field a candidate in the bypoll.He brushed aside any role of the BJP in the sizable NOTA (none of the above) votes polled in the bypoll. "Once the BJP withdraws from the fray, it will not indulge in such activities like casting NOTA votes," Bawankule asserted.

NCP spokesperson Clyde Crasto said, "Shelar and BJP's reaction that 'had we contested the Andheri East Assembly by-election, Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) candidate Rutuja Latke's defeat was certain' is like the fox who said 'grapes are sour' when he could not get them because they was out of his reach." Rutuja Latke won the bypoll by bagging more than 66,000 votes, followed by 12,806 votes polled in favour of the None Of The Above (NOTA) option. The November 3 byelection, necessitated due to the death of sitting Shiv Sena MLA and her husband Ramesh Latke in May this year, was a mere formality after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) withdrew its candidate - Murji Patel - from the race.

Chautala, Bishnoi on one stage, BJP, JJP close Adampur campaign with a united front

Political differences and arch rivalries were set aside as the BJP and Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) came together on the last day of campaigning for the Adampur Assembly bypoll.

Sharing the stage were JJP leader and Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala, BJP leader Brijendra Singh, BJP CM Manohar Lal Khattar, BJP candidate Bhavya Bishnoi and his father Kuldeep Bishnoi, the late Bhajan Lal’s wife and Bhavya’s grandmother Jasma Devi, as well as several state ministers, MLAs, MPs and other senior leaders of the state.

All you need to know about the high-stakes political battle in Haryana

Adampur constituency in Haryana’s Hisar district, considered to be a stronghold of Haryana’s three-time former chief minister Bhajan Lal’s family, is up for grabs again.

While the BJP, which has fielded Bhavya Bishnoi, the son of two-time MP and four-time MLA Kuldeep Bishnoi, appears to have an edge, considering the following the Bishnoi family has in the area, the Opposition is not ready to give up without a fight.

Congress has built its campaign to cash in on the anti-incumbency factor and farmers’ resentment against BJP with many leaders saying Kuldeep is a ‘traitor’ who deserted the constituency, quit the Congress and joined BJP to allegedly get his Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax cases settled.

Munugode bypoll: TRS ups its game with eye on national stage, high-octane BJP may fall short

Amid the high-stakes campaign for the Munugode by-election in Telangana, the ruling party in the state, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), is rolling itself out in its new avatar as Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS). With a big win here, the BRS aims to go national, with the message that it can take on the BJP and win.

The BRS campaign is unlike that of any regional party, morphing into a monumental effort to seek national identity.

To match the BJP’s high-optics campaign and promises of Central government largesse, the TRS has deployed 14 state ministers and at least 50-60 MLAs to cover every inch of Munugode in Nalgonda district. Everywhere you go in the constituency, BRS leaders are highlighting and amplifying the state’s “national role model” schemes like Rythu Bandhu, Dalit Bandhu, free power to the farm sector, farm insurance and myraid other schemes and initiatives that they claim are bringing a change in the lives of the people, especially the poor and marginalised, especially Dalits.
