The BJP led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah have notched up victory after victory - the only exceptions to the case in states where BJP has significant presence, being Delhi and Punjab - and now over 70% of India lives in BJP or BJP-ally ruled states.

Phulpur Bypoll: Samajwadi Party's Nagendra Pratap Singh Patel leading by 15,713 votes with 122247 votes, BJP's Kaushlendra Singh Patel second with 106534 votes after 11th round of counting.

Though nine round of counting has been completed but the results of only upto three rounds were announced. Gorakhpur is the sitting seat of UP Chief Minister Adityanath.

Denying that his move was linked to the worrying trends for the ruling BJP, Rautela said, "The counting of votes is underway".

Around 1 pm, Samajwadi candidate Praveen Kumar Nishad was leading with 1,33,565 votes over BJP's Upendra Dutt Shukla after the ninth round of counting. The byelection generated a lot of interest with many experts viewing it as a rehearsal for 2019 Lok Sabha elections, particularly in Uttar Pradesh. The Phulpur seat, once represented by India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, had been vacated by Keshav Prasad Maurya, who was state BJP chief and is now the Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.

Attacking the BSP and the SP, the chief minister claimed, "These parties are indulging in negative politics, politics of bargaining and politics of opportunism".

Samajwadi Party is leading in both Phulpur and Gorakhpur Lok Sabha seats.

The BJP, which has an overwhelming majority in the state Assembly, has nothing to lose in terms of number, but the polls can be a precursor to the general elections next year. 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.

According to the EC, there are 19.61 lakh voters in the Phulpur Parliamentary constituency, while the Gorakhpur Lok Sabha seat has 19.49 lakh voters.

In Phulpur, the poorest polling was reported from Allahabad (East) where only 21.65 percent voters turned up to exercise their franchise, followed by Allahabad (West) with 31 percent.

The voter turnout was 47.45 per cent in Gorakhpur and 37.39 per cent in Phulpur in Sunday's polling. The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) have extended support to the SP candidate. The Bhabua seat is witnessing a straight contest between BJP's Rinki Pandey and Congress' Shambhu Singh Patel.
