Bihar Election Results: Seats where victory margin was less than 1,000

2019 Election India

In a closely fought assembly election in Bihar, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal-United won a constituency by just 12 votes. The Hilsa seat result has been contested by the opposition Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) of Tejashwi Yadav.

The Congress, which had contested 70 seats, had won just 14 and was leading at another 5 a strike rate of 27%. It had done especially badly in the seats where it was in a straight fight with the BJP. The three Left parties CPI(ML), CPM, and CPI had won or were leading in 17 of the 29 seats that they had contested, a strike rate of 58.6 %. The RJD, which had contested 144 seats, had won 60 and was leading at 16 a strike rate of about 53 %, according to data on the Election Commission website at 11.15 pm on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose rallies played a part in ensuring the NDA returned to power in the state, tweeted: “Voters in Bihar have made it clear that development is their only aspiration and priority… People’s blessings to NDA’s good governance even after 15 years of rule show what Bihar’s dreams and expectations are. The youth of the state have made it clear that the new decade will be of Bihar and for a self-reliant Bihar.”

He added in another tweet: “…from farmers to traders, from businessmen to shopkeepers, every section has trusted NDA’s sabka vikas, sabka vishwas. I assure each person that we will continue to work towards the development of the state.”

Here are the seats where the victory margin was less than 1,000:

In Barbigha, Janata Dal (United) candidate Sudarshan Kumar defeated Congress’ Gajanan Shahi by just 113 votes. In Bhore, the victory margin was a mere 462.

The RJD’s Fatehbahadur trumped the BJP’s Satya Narayan in Dehri by a mere 464 votes. It was among any seats like Bakhri, Ramgarh, Chakai, Matihani, and Kurhani Assembly seats where victory came after a close fight.

According to the results updated on the Election Commission website late Tuesday night, JD(U)’s Krishnamurari Sharan alias Prem Mukhiya has polled 61,848 votes, while the RJD’s Atri Muni alias Shakti Singh Yadav has got 61,836 votes.

“Results declared,” the poll panel wrote in the ‘status’ column for Hilsa seat late Tuesday night. And in the margin column it wrote “12”.


West Bengal Will Drown In Ganga If BJP Comes To Power: TMC

Taking the dig at BJP, the Trinamool Congress on Friday said if the BJP manages to come to power in West Bengal, the state will drown in river Ganga just like all the other projects which were powered under the central government, but were unsuccessful.

TMC Rajya Sabha MP Sukhendu Sekhar Roy recalled the promises made by the saffron party and said that none of them were fulfilled. He also mocked BJP’s remarks to turn West Bengal into ‘Sonar Bangla’ (golden Bengal) if it emerges triumphant in the assembly elections.

“If this party (BJP) comes to power, then surely Bengal will drown in the Ganga, as all programmes and projects of the Centre have typically flopped, bearing no results,” he alleged.

Attacking the Centre for the demonetisation decision, he said, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had in 2016 promised that black money will be brought back to the country and that each person will receive Rs 15 lakh in their bank accounts.

“What happened to these promises? GDP growth rate has consistently fallen, unemployment increased and more than 100 people died while standing in queues to withdraw money from ATMs,” he said.

Even Home Minister Amit Shah had said the assurance of depositing Rs 15 lakh into bank accounts of people was a “jumla (rhetoric)”, Roy said.

“Similarly, all promises of the Modi government are jumlas,” he said.

Roy alleged that the law and order condition in BJP- ruled states is “horrible”, as was evident during the recent incidents in Hathras and Balarampur.

The TMC leader also said deposit bases of public sector banks are gradually weakening, while those of the private lenders are “growing incrementally”.

After the BJP-led government came to power in 2014, bad loans have swelled, profitability has gone down and write-offs increased.

“I think there is a need for a probe by the Serious Frauds Investigation Office (SFIO), as all government and RBI guidelines are being sidelined,” he claimed.

Sonia Gandhi calls meet of Kerala leaders after local polls debacle

The Congress allies, including the IUML, had asked it to examine why it did not do well in the polls.




Sonia Gandhi in Cong meeting

New Delhi, Jan 16: Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi has called a meeting of party leaders from Kerala next week to discuss the upcoming Assembly polls in wake of the setback the party received in the recent local body polls, sources said.

The leaders called include former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, state President M. Ramchandran and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Ramesh Chennithala. The Congress in the state is pitted against the ruling Left Democratic Front, but not making headway despite the anti-incumbency factor, due to its internal rifts with factions led by Chandy and Chennithala scrambling for supremacy, party insiders say.

The divisions in the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) came out in the open in December after it faced a rout in the local body polls despite performing well in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

After the poll debacle, Ramachandran, Chennithala and Chandy had said that party will introspect. Congress MP K. Sudhakaran and other state leaders had lashed out at the state Congress leadership and said democracy needs to be reinstated in the party. “We need to reinstate democracy inside the party. The party should bring in leaders who can instill confidence in the minds of party workers and the civil society. Then we can save the party,” Sudhakaran had told the media.

The Congress allies, including the IUML, had asked it to examine why it did not do well in the polls.
