After the first few rounds of counting, the BJP is leading in Uttar Pradesh’s Gola Gokarnath, Haryana’s Adampur, Odisha’s Dhamnagar as counting begins on Sunday in seven assembly constituencies in six states. The RJD (Rashtriya Janata Dal) is leading in Bihar by winning the Mokama Assembly seat by over 16,000 votes.
K Chandrasekhar’s Rao’s Telangana Rashtriya Samithi is ahead in Munugode and Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena is poised to win Mumbai’s Andheri East seat.
While the results are likely to upset the calculus of the current state governments, the contests are seen as a battle of family legacy in Haryana and a battle of prestige in Telangana, Bihar and Maharashtra.
As regional parties form a united front for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections – just over a year and a half away – the poll results could act as booster shots or perception busters, depending on the results.
The Bharatiya Janata Party and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Samajwadi Party (SP) and Biju Janata Dal (BJD) are in a tough fight.
