    NEW DELHI: The ruling BJP is on the verge of winning the bypolls in two Lok Sabha seats in Gujarat, while the JD(U) in Bihar is all set to suffer a setback in Maharajganj Lok Sabha seat.

    According to TV reports, BJP candidates Vitthal Radadiaare ​and Haribhai Chaudhary are on the verge of winning the Porbandar and Banaskantha Lok Sabha seats respectively, to which byelections were held in Gujarat on Sunday last.

    The BJP is also leading in the four assembly constituencies of Jetpur, Limbadi, Dhoraji and MorvaHadaf, where the bypolls were held in Gujarat.

    In Bihar, chief minister Nitish Kumar is all set to suffer a setback with JD(U) candidate PK Shahi on verge of losing to RJD's Prabhunath Singh.

    The bypoll was necessitated after the death of Umashankar Singh, an RJD MP and father of Congress candidate Jitendra Swami.

    Speaking to TV channels, RJD chief Lalu Prasad said that the people of the state were fed up with the wrong policies of the Nitish government.

    He said the result was a vote against Nitish Kumar and this was the beginning of the fall of the JD(U) in Bihar.

    In Bengal, Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress has managed early leads.

    The Trinamool Congress is surging ahead in the Howrah Lok Sabha seat with its candidate Prasun Banerjee leading over its nearest CPM rival by 22,924 votes.

    Is BJP dependent on JD(U) or JD(U) on BJP - hope Nitish understands the fallout of parting ways with NDA could be harmful to his own party and a possible return to the dark days of Lallu Raj in Bihar.

    Well, Bihar's LS seat was with RJD so it's not a loss for Nitish while all 6 seats of Gujarat bypoll were with Congress. 2 LS and 4 assembly. All won by BJP. So that's actually a clean sweep and a major setback for Congress. And margin is also very big so Congress needs to think again about its existence in Gujarat.

    This is huge vrajla. Congress couldn't even save 1 freaking seat. I thought atleast Banaskantha and Morva hadaf could be saved and might be limdi but all gone and that's also with massive margin. And limdi,morva hadf saw 62% voting while remaining saw 32-35 and 45% , so it could be against BJP but that didn't happen. Congress got wiped out.

    Now BJP has 119 seats in assembly and 2 more seats in LS. Poor performance by congress, very poor.

    The Congress had done well in the last LS election.

    This loss is therefore raises interesting questions.

    Is it because of Modi's charm over Gujarat? If it were so, then why did it not work earlier in the last LS elections?

    Or is it because the people are fed up to the gills with the shenanigans and scams that is being done by the UPA at the centre?

    The win by the acclaimed clown of India Laoo and his cronies is quite a setback.

    Nitish was ploughing his own furrow in Behar and calling the shots. In fact, it was felt that they would do equally well in Behar without the BJP as an ally.

    Given that Nititsh has got this jolt and the writing seems to be on the wall, how will Nitish jump with regards to the 2014 election?

    Nitish cannot stand Modi and what if Modi is made the 'ace' of BJP?

    It was because Modi didn't put all efforts or I should say didn't want to win more seats. If BJP makes him PM candidate, Gujarat will give 20+ out of 26 seats.

    Also with Vitthal Radadiaare in BJP it has become an easy task for Modi. He is immensely popular in Maharashtra as well. Being a neighbouring state to Gujarat, a lot of businesses are shifting their base from Maharashtra to South Gujarat. Him being projected as a PM candidate will help BJP add many more seats to their existing tally.

    Yes and if I may correct Modi did not even campaign in those seats. I heard that on news debate.

    He didn't campaign but Krushi Mahotsav took a great part in win ;) btw, this Krushi Mahotsav is very good actually. Experts are actively pushing drip irrigation tech by showing demo by cultivating in huge farms, can you believe that ?? And in last election, BJP performed badly in North Gujarat because of Banaskantha MP but he died due to heart attack and now BJP regained Banaskantha LS seat and also increased strength in Sabarkantha.
    Don't care about Nitish anymore, he's an idiot. He should continue to do work in Bihar and should not utter any word about BJP and Modi. His ego will let him down.

    Though I always get enraged whenever parties like RJD or SP gain any benefit, maybe this minor setback for Nitish is for the greater good. Nitish is a great guy, but for the greater good of the nation, he has to leave aside his differences with the BJP/Modi, and come together amicably.

    I hope this minor setback for Nitish will make him realize that the common aim of getting rid of the Congress is the greatest need that faces the nation at present, and that the dictum of "united we stand, divided we fall" - is not lost on him.

    Even when people are happy with a government/party (/Modi/BJP) verdicts are majority, not clean sweeps like this.
    Though I understand that these were only bye polls on some seats. Yet the indications are there that an anti-Congress wave is simmering beneath.
    This cannot be attributed solely to the Modi government's good will.

    There is certainly an anti-Congress wave. If only Karnataka BJP had handled the state better, things would have looked much brighter for the BJP overall. The overall aim of all right-thinking people in the nation should be to get the accursed UPA out of power. UPA-3 will destroy this nation, and you can kiss goodbye to the "India story".

    Congress won Karnataka through divide and rule - BJP + KJP + BSR vote percentage less by only 1 % from 2008 and Congress romping home with a mere 1.8% increase in vote share.

    On topic, apparently even Sharad Yadav of JD(U) needs help from BJP to get elected in Bihar - he is from MP and was unsuccessful in Uttar Pradesh.

    I guess Nitish Kumar's arrogance got the better of him in trashing Narendra Modi repeatedly.
