By-poll Results 2022 LIVE Updates: The counting of votes for one Lok Sabha and four Assembly seats that went to polls earlier this week will be held on Saturday.

Ballygunge (West Bengal), Khairagarh (Chhattisgarh), Bochahan (Bihar), and Kolhapur North (Maharashtra) were the four assembly constituencies that went to polls. One Lok Sabha seat where election was held is Asansol, West Bengal.

Votes are being counted for the recently concluded by-elections in Bengal’s Asansol Lok Sabha seat and assembly seats in Bengal’s Ballygunge, Khairagarh in Chhattisgarh, Bochahan in Bihar and Kolhapur North in Maharashtra.

The Asansol seat became vacant after BJP member Babul Supriyo resigned and joined the Trinamool Congress (TMC). The TMC fielded Babul Supriyo for the Ballygunge assembly seat, where he will face BJP’s Keya Ghosh and CPI-Saira M’s Shah Halim. The TMC won this seat in the 2021 assembly elections, but its sitting MLA, Subrata Mukherjee, died in November last year, necessitating by-elections.

The TMC has chosen actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha to represent Asansol in the Lok Sabha. He is going up against Agnimitra Paul of the BJP.

Meanwhile, after the fifth round of counting, Babul Supriyo is leading the Ballygunge Assembly seat by a margin of 8,498 votes. Supriyo has received 16,548 votes, while CPM candidate Saira Shah Halim is a distant second getting 8,049 votes. Congress candidate Kamaruzzaman Chowdhury bagged 2,820 and BJP candidate Keya Ghosh got 1,418 votes. While TMC received 58.84 per cent votes, CPM got 25.33 per cent and the BJP 4.26 per cent.

A byelection was held in Khairagarh assembly seat due to the death of Janata Congress Chhattisgarh (J) MLA Devvrat Singh. In this case, voter turnout was 78 percent. The postal ballots will be counted first, followed by the EVM.

The counting will continue for 21 rounds on 14 tables. Ten candidates ran for the Khairagarh assembly seat, but the fight was expected to be between Yashoda Verma of the Congress and Komal Janghel of the BJP. The Election Commission had announced byelections for these seats on March 12.

Elections became necessary in Kolhapur North assembly seat after sitting Congress MLA Chandrakant Jadhav died of Covid in December of last year. There was a 60 percent turnout on Tuesday. There were 15 candidates running for this seat, but the contest was expected to be between the Congress and the BJP. In Maharashtra, the Congress is a constituent of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government.
