Regional parties Fought hard
Regional parties like the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Samajwadi Party (SP), and Biju Janata Dal fought hard against the BJP in the majority of seats (BJD). The BJP held three seats, the Congress two, the Shiv Sena one, and the RJD one each of the seven seats where by-elections were held.
Every Seat Reasons Behind Election
After former incumbent Kuldeep Bishnoi left the Vidhan Sabha in August to join the BJP instead of the Congress, a byelection was required in Adampur. Due to Sena MLA Ramesh Latke’s sudden passing, the Andheri East election was held. Anant Singh, the outgoing MLA from Mokama in Bihar, was forced to resign as a result of his conviction in a criminal case, leaving the seat empty. The death of incumbent BJP MLA Subhash Singh made the election in Gopalganj, also in Bihar, necessary. After sitting MLA Komatireddy Raj Gopal Reddy resigned on August 2, Munugode held a byelection. After sitting MLA Arvind Giri passed away, a byelection was required for the Gola Gokarannath Assembly seat. In the Lakhimpur Kheri district, and existing BJP MLA Bishnu Charan Das’ sudden death left the seat open in Dhamnagar.
