It has been represented by Jawaharlal Nehru, his sister Vijayalakshmi Pandit and also former Prime Minister V P Singh. Before him, his mentor Yogi Avaidyanath was MP from the seat for two terms, in 1991 and 1993.

Though the RJD lost in Bhabua, the twin victories helped Tejashwi, 28, shed the tag of "bachcha" in politics, as he is often ridiculed by the BJP.

The counting will be done for 14 constituencies in which there will be 26 rounds. The combined vote share of BJP-JD (U) in 2014 was close to 50 per cent. Dynamic security arrangements have been made for counting of votes.

With the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) candidates winning the by-polls in Araria and Jehanabad constituencies, party president Lalu Prasad on Wednesday hailed it as "triumph of truth over lies".

The bypolls to Jehanabad and Bhabua assembly seats are being held following the death of sitting legislators from the RJD and the BJP, respectively. Final result is expect by afternoon. The Bahujan Samaj Party supported the Samajwadi Party in both Phulpur and Gorakhpur to avoid a split in opposition vote.

The SP has been the runner-up on Gorakhpur seat many times before, while it had won the Phulpur seat four times since 1996. With this Alliance, it is not cleared yet, with whom RJD will Contest the 2019 Loksabha Election?

Going into the Araria Lok Sabha bypoll, the BJP-JD (U) alliance was said to have upper hand on the basis of the votes polled in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. In 2018 UP and Bihar by-polls elections BJP Were succeed to seal only one seat, by Pinky Pandey, who won the Bhabua seat by 15,490 votes.

This is the first electoral battle in the state since Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, head of JD (U), broke out the alliance with the RJD and the Indian National Congress and joined the NDA Alliance past year.

RJD leader and former deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav, who led the campaign for RJD-Congress in the absence of his father and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, described the Araria and Jehanabad wins as the "Bihar people's slap on the face of those talking about double engine government".
