Bihar By Election Results 2018: RJD Surges Ahead in Araria & Jehanabad, BJP Leads in Bhabua

Bhabua: After completion of the 20th round, BJP’s Rinky Rani is leading by 13,130 votes with 55,838 votes in Bhabua. This is the first electoral battle in the state since Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who also heads the JD(U), walked out of the alliance with the RJD and the Congress and joined the BJP-led NDA last year. The BJP is hopeful of retaining the Bhabhua Assembly seat riding on a sympathy wave for Anand Bhushan Pandey whose death at the age of 48 necessitated the bypoll. The saffron party fielded Pandey’s wife Rinky Rani.
