UP, Bihar Bye-Election Results 2019 Live Updates: In the Lok Sabha elections, BJP won 62 of the 80 parliamentary seats in Uttar Pradesh.

UP, Bihar Bye-Election Results 2019 Live Updates:

In Uttar Pradesh, eight of the 11 seats were held earlier by the BJP and one by its ally Apna Dal (Sonelal). The seats of Rampur and Jalalpur (Ambedkarnagar) were held by the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party, respectively. The other areas where bypolls were held are Gangoh, Iglas (SC), Lucknow Cantonment, Govindnagar, Manikpur, Pratapgarh, Zaidpur (SC), Balha (SC) and Ghosi. The bye-elections were necessitated after some MLAs were elected to the Lok Sabha and resigned as members of the state Assembly.

Meanwhile, the bye-elections to Samastipur Lok Sabha and five Assembly seats in Bihar are looking like a decidedly one-horse race for the NDA. Of particular interest is the Kishanganj Assembly seat, where the Asaduddin Owaisi-led AIMIM has made it a triangular contest against BJP and Congress.

For the lone Parliamentary seat (Samastipur), NDA ally LJP has fielded Prince Raj, son of late LJP leader Ramchandra Paswan, whose death prompted the bypoll. Prince Raj will be up against senior Congress leader Ashok Ram. The JD(U) is contesting the remaining four Assembly segments: Daraunda, Belhar, Simri Bakhtiyarpur and Nathnagar.

The Congress, in particular, hopes to show signs of revival in Uttar Pradesh after its battering in the Lok Sabha polls in which it won just one seat, party chief Sonia Gandhi’s Rae Bareli constituency. In contrast, the BJP won 62 of the 80 parliamentary seats in the state and an ally bagged two more. In Bihar, the coalition, which comprises Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's JD(U), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan's LJP, won 39 out of 40 Lok Sabha seats.

The bypolls are largely being seen as a referendum on the two-year government of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and four-year reign of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. Uttar Pradesh saw a low voter turnout of 47.05 per cent in 11 assembly seats while the figure was 49.50 per cent in Bihar.
