Let us tell you all that by-elections have been held in Rampur and Azamgarh Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh and also in Sangrur Lok Sabha seat of Punjab. Let us tell you all that the need to hold by-elections to Rampur and Azamgarh Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh was due to the fact that SP chief Akhilesh Yadav and party leader Azam Khan were declared elected in the assembly elections. After this, both the leaders resigned as MPs from Azamgarh and Rampur.
Let us tell you all that from the Rampur Lok Sabha seat, BJP has fielded Ghanshyam Singh Lodhi who has recently joined the party. At the same time, SP has fielded Asim Raza from here who is Azam Khan's favourite candidate. With this, the BSP led by Mayawati, which has been the Chief Minister of the state, has not fielded a candidate for this seat. By the way, there is a triangular contest in the Azamgarh seat of the state from where the BJP has fielded famous Bhojpuri actor Dinesh Lal Yadav Nirahua in the electoral arena. In fact, Nirahua will take on Dharmendra Yadav of the SP and Shah Alam alias Guddu Jamali of the BSP.
In such a situation, today the counting of votes on the ballot box has started and it has to be seen who wins. On the other hand, before the counting of votes started in Azamgarh, SP candidate Dharmendra Yadav made a big allegation. He said I'm not being allowed in. EVMs are being tampered with inside the counting centre. Apart from this, let us also tell you that the counting of votes started in the by-election. In UP, the trends will start coming in Rampur and Azamgarh and Sangrur seats in a short while. Earlier, ballot papers were counted at the counting centres.
