New Delhi:
Election results: Election results for seven parliamentary seats across six states will be announced today. Prestige battles take place in Bihar and Telangana, and there is a family legacy at stake in Haryana.

Here are 10 points that sum up what this election means:

  1. The BJP won in Gola Gokranathath in Uttar Pradesh, Adampur in Haryana, Gopalganj Bihar and leads in Dhamnagar in Odisha. Rashtriya Janata Dal led by Tegashwi Yadav won in Mukama Bihar. Telangana Rashtriya Samethi of Team K Chandrashekar of Team K Chandrashekar is up front in Munugode and the Shiv Sena faction led by Uddhav Thackeray is set to win the seat of Andheri East in Mumbai.

  2. Out of the seven seats, the BJP held three, the Congress two, while Shiv Sena and the RJD had one seat before that. There are two seats in Bihar and one each in UP, Haryana, Maharashtra, Telangana and Odisha.

  3. Bihar witnesses its first contest – over two seats – since Nitish Kumar ditched the BJP to revive JDU’s alliance with Tejashwi Yadav’s RJD. RJD candidate Neelam Devi, wife of Anant Singh who was disqualified after being found guilty of illegal possession of weapons, drives in Mukama. In Gopalganj, the RJD is hoping to oust the BJP which has been holding it for nearly two decades now. He pitted Mohan Prasad Gupta against Kusum Devi of the BJP, whose death necessitated the election of her husband Subhas Singh.

  4. In Haryana, former Prime Minister Bhajan Lal’s family seat, Adampur, will decide whether his grandson Bhavya Bishnoi can carry forward his 68-year legacy after switching from Congress to the BJP. Bhavya’s father, Kuldeep Bishnoi, who had led the family to the BJP, resigned as Adampur MLA when he defected, leading to this questioning.

  5. Andheri East in Maharashtra is witnessing the first two. It is the first reconnaissance battle after Shiv Sena split in two as Eknath Shinde ousted Uddhav Thackeray to become the Prime Minister with the help of the BJP. It is the first time in decades that Sina led by Thackeray has fought with a new name – Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) – and a new symbol, the ‘torch’ or flaming torch.

  6. Shiv Sena (Udhav) Rutuja Latke candidate is the former widow of Sena MLA from Andheri (East), who died of a heart attack in May 2022 in Dubai. The BJP had withdrawn its candidate as part of “political tradition” in opinion polls necessitated by the death of a leader.

  7. In Telangana, Mongod watched the ruling TRS movement and its arch-rival BJP fight on the ground and made allegations of ‘Rs Crore’ – particularly given Prime Minister K Chandrashkar Rao’s ambition to challenge Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2024. Here the MLA Congress resigned and is Now fighting for BJP ticket.

  8. Also in Dhamnagar in Odisha, the ruling regional party BJD is facing the BJP. It was won by the BJP last time but the death of MLA Bishnu Charan Sethi led to this competition. He sent his son.

  9. In its stronghold in UP, the BJP is seeking to retain the seat of Jhula Gokaranath, which became vacant after the death of Arvind Giri MLA on September 6. (BJP) and Vinay Tiwari of the Samajwadi Party, a former MLA.

  10. It is unlikely that any of these contests will upset the accounts of existing state governments. But, with regional parties seeking to forge a united front for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections – just a year and a half later – these could be booster shots, or perception breaches, depending on the results.
