New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday won the Hamirpur Assembly by-elections by a margin of over 17,000 votes. The counting of votes for the by-elections in Uttar Pradesh’s Hamirpur Assembly constituency began at 8 AM on Friday. The results were declared on the same day.

This year the Uttar Pradesh seat has witnessed a four-cornered contest between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Congress. BJP candidate Yuvraj Singh won the Hamirpur Assembly by-poll this year. It must be noted that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had campaigned for Yuvraj Singh while no other prominent face from the opposition campaigned for their candidates.

A total of nine candidates contested this year from the Hamirpur seat. The BJP has fielded party member Yuvraj Singh, BSP Naushad Ali, Manoj Prajapati from the SP, and the Congress has fielded candidate Hardeep Nishad. Apart from the four major parties, the CPI candidate from Hamirpur is Jamal Alam Mansori. Moreover, there are four Independent candidates in the fray, as well.

BJP retains its position after the seat was left vacant following the conviction of party’s sitting candidate MLA Ashok Kumar Singh Chandel in May, necessitating the polls. Chandel was disqualified from the Hamirpur seat after he was sentenced in a murder case in May this year.

The rival parties like SP and BSP attempted their best to snatch the electoral seat but could not defeat BJP.

Hamirpur assembly falls in the first set of by-elections in four assembly seats – Dantewada, Pala, Badharghat and Hamirpur – of Chhattisgarh, Kerala, Tripura and Uttar Pradesh, respectively; following the Lok Sabha polls 2019. The polling in the Uttar Pradesh seat was held on September 23, while the counting will be conducted today.
