Lok Sabha bypolls in UP: Counting of votes tomorrow

In Phulpur, SP's Pratap Singh Patel is leading by 15,713 with 122,247 votes, while BJP's Kaushlendra Singh Patel is trailing with 106,534 votes after eleven rounds of counting.

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.

Rautela said the media can not be allowed inside the counting centres as per Election Commission instructions. The byelections for the Gorakhpur Lok Sabha Assembly seat is turning out to be in Samajwadi Party's favour.

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.

Gorakhpur has been a BJP seat for almost three decades but the SP and BJP joined hands this time hoping to spring a surprise. He confirmed that after the fifth round of voting, the SP candidate has 74,077 votes in his kitty while the BJP has 70,317 votes.

"The voters will reject this opportunistic, unethical and unholy alliance", he had said. According to latest updates, Upendra Dutt Sharma of BJP is leading from Gorakhpur. I firmly believe that we will win both #Gorakhpur & #Phulpur, SP is leading in initial rounds but a number of rounds are still left. The Samajwadi Party is also leading in Phulpur.

The bypolls were necessitated after Adityanath and his Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya vacated the Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats respectively, following their election to the state legislative council. Ten candidates were in the fray from Gorakhpur, while 22 candidates contested from Phulpur.

The Bharatiya Janata Party seems to be facing an unexpected setback in Uttar Pradesh with both Lok Sabha seats seeing leads for the opposition. Before Adityanath, the seat was represented in Parliament by his mentor Yogi Avaidyanath thrice. Notably, Nagendra Pratap Singh Patel of the Samajwadi Party is leading by as many as 6931.

Phulpur, once represented by the country's first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, witnessed a saffron surge in the 2014 Lok Sabha election when Maurya won the seat.
