BJP's Upendra Dutt Shukla leading in Gorakhpur

The trend being observed in the counting for the Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha bypolls on Wednesday have dampened the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) first anniversary of the Yogi Adityanath government next week.

A huge controversy broke out after officials at Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh blacked out the counting of votes and also banned media persons. In Phulpur, SP Nagendra Patel is leading by 12,000 votes with his opposition candidate Kaushalendra Singh Patel. BJP: 43,456 votes, SP: 44,979 votes.

The reproduction of the story/photograph in any form will be liable for legal action. The arrangement between the parties has left BJP in an uneasy position and entire BJP machinery had to do a war like campaigning on both the seats.

The district magistrate in Gorakhpur refused to release the lead numbers in Gorakhpur for a long time and asked accredited journalists to move out of the counting hall.

Phulpur Bypoll: Samajwadi Party's Nagendra Pratap Singh Patel leading by 1437 votes with 7600 votes, BJP's Kaushlendra Singh Patel 6163 votes after round 3.

Gorakhpur Bypoll: BJP's Upendra Dutt Shukla leading with 15577 votes, SP's Praveen Kumar Nishad second with 13911 votes. A constituency won by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on five successive occasions, the saffron party not only has to win Gorakhpur but also retain, if not increase, Adityanath's 2014 victory margin of nearly 3.13 lakh votes.

In Araria, the voter turnout was 57%, while Jehanabad and Bhabua saw 50% and 54% voting.

The Gorakhpur seat was vacated by Yogi Adityanath after he became Chief Minister while the Phulpur seat fell vacant after the election of his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya as an MLC in the state assembly.

After casting his vote, a beaming Adityanath told reporters that the "BJP continues to get a groundswell of public support since they are witnessing development, peace and prosperity under its government". Congress candidate Sureetha Kareem was a distant third with only 1,712 votes in her kitty.
