Jehanabad, Mar 14: The result of Jehanabad bye-election in Bihar will be declared today. Counting of votes for Jehanabad bypoll result 2018 will begin at 8:00 am. Polling for bye-election result of Jehanabad Assembly was held on March 11. Catch here the live updates on Jehanabad bye-election result.
The Jehanabad Assembly seat fell vacant after the death of RJD Legislator Mundrika Yadav. To retain the Assembly seat, the RJD fielded Uday Yadav, who is in a direct battle with the ruling JD(U)’s Abhiram Sharma. Sharma had won the seat in 2010 when his party was an ally of the BJP.
Besides Jehanabad, bypolls were also held in Araria Lok Sabha and Bhabhua Assembly seats in Bihar. Stakes are high for RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, who spearheaded the poll campaign for the party in absence of his father Lalu Prasad Yadav, who is behind bars in connection with two fodder scam cases.
Much is at stake for the BJP as well which is pushing hard to strengthen its grip in all states ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
