SP leads in Gorakhpur, Phulpur bypolls

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is facing a serious challenge on his home turf Gorakhpur. Stay with us for Live updates on counting of votes for Gorakhpur bypolls.

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.

Phulpur bypoll: Samajwadi Party's Nagendra Pratap Singh Patel leading by 14,239 with 111668 votes, BJP's Kaushlendra Singh Patel second with 97369 votes after ten rounds of counting.

Meanwhile, polling for Araria Lok Sabha seat was peaceful amid reports of polarisation following the lodging of an FIR against the Bihar BJP president Nityanand Rai for his unsavoury remarks against the RJD nominee Sarfaraz Alam.

While the lead in the Phulpur constituency is substantial at over 10,000 votes, the exact extent of leads in Gorakhpur can not be estimated.

Gorakhpur Bypoll: SP's Praveen Kumar Nishad leading with 74,077 votes, BJP's Upendra Dutt Shukla second with 70,317 votes after fifth round of counting.

Tight security arrangements are in place ahead of the counting of votes in these constituencies.

Termed by Adityanath a "rehearsal" for the 2019 Lok Sabha election, the bypolls saw a triangular contest involving the ruling BJP, the SP and the Congress.

In Gorakhpur, the former parliamentary constituency of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the SP's Pravin Nishad managed 44,979 votes against BJP's Upendra Dutt Shukla's 43,456 votes around 11 a.m. The direct fight is between SP, BSP and BJP. BJP got 82811 votes.

In Bihar's Araria, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress are pitted against the BJP-Janata Dal (United) alliance and it's the first big test for Nitish Kumar after he walked out of the Grand Alliance previous year to team up with the BJP.

After counting picked up pace at around 10 a.m., Kaushlendra Singh Patel lost his initial lead to Nagendra Patel by over 1,500 votes.

In Araria, Bharatiya Janata Party's candidate Pradip Kumar Singh is leading over RJD candidate Sarfaraz Alam.
