The bypolls were the first real test for the BJP-led government at the Centre following the demonetisation of high denomination banknotes and it seems the historic move hardly made any impact, negative or positive, on the voters’ mindset.

Counting for by-elections in 4 Lok Sabha constituencies and 10 assembly seats across 6 states and one union territory began on Tuesday.

Bypolls were conducted for three assembly constituencies in Tamil Nadu, two in Tripura, one each in Assam, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh and the union territory of Puducherry.

In Madhya Pradesh, BJP’s Gyan Singh won Lok Sabha seat from Shahdol. BJP’s Manju Dadu also won on Nepanagar assembly seat by 40,600 votes.

In Assam the BJP is leading by a huge margin in the Lakhimpur Lok Sabha seat vacated by Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal. Also the BJP is leading in Baithalangso assembly seat, where the Congress candidate who had won in May joined the BJP.

In Tripura CPI(M) won both assembly seats in the bypoll. CPI(M)’s Jhumu Sarkar (15,769 votes) defeated his nearest BJP rival Shistamohan Das (12,395 votes) by a 3,374-vote margin in Barjala (SC) constituency. In Khowai constituency, CPI(M) candidate Biswajit Datta with 24,810 votes defeated his nearest TMC candidate Manoj Das (8,763 votes) by a margin of 16,047 votes.

In West Bengal Trinamool Congress’ Dibyendu Adhikari wins Tamluk Lok Sabha seat defeating his nearest rival CPM’s Mandira Panda.

In Tamil Nadu, after ten rounds of counting in Aravakkurichi, AIADMK’s Senthil Balaji is leading . AIADMK’s AK Bose is also leading in Thiruparankkundram. AIADMK’s M Rengasamy defeated his nearest rival in Thanjavur from DMK by more than 26,483 votes.
