Set back for BJP as Kairana slipping from hand

Lucknow: In a major set back to the ruling BJP in Uttar Pradesh, high-stake Kairana parliamentary constituency is slipping from its hands as Bharatiya Janata Party’s Mriganka Singh was trailing by over 6,200 votes as Rashtriya lok Dal’s (RlD) Tabassum Hasan maintained her lead.

Hasan has been supported by the Samajwadi Party (SP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Congress and the regional Nishad Party in the bypoll which was held on Monday.

Kairana’s trends are being watched closely across the country as this could set in motion the opposition unity if its candidate wins and could undo the victory march of the BJP, which had earlier lost the Gorakhpur and Phulpur seats in the state.

District Election Officer Indra Vikram Singh said the postal ballots were counted first after which phase-wise EVM’s were being counted.
