On the last day of campaigning on Friday, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath addressed public meetings in Gorakhpur while Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav campaigned in Phulpur. In OBC-dominated Phulpur, BJP has fielded former Varanasi mayor Kaushalendra Singh Patel, the SP candidate is Nagendra Pratap Singh Patel (both OBCs), and the Congress has given the ticket to Manish Mishra.
Attacking the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Samajwadi Party (SP), the chief minister said, "These parties are indulging in negative politics, politics of bargaining and politics of opportunism". Results will be declared on March 14 after counting of EVM votes.
In both the by-elections, the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) would be equipped with VVPAT where the voters can see for whom they have voted while Electronically Transmitted Postal Ballot System will be used to dispatch postal ballots to eligible service voters in the constituencies.
In Gorakhpur parliamentary constituency, there are 970 polling centres and 2141 polling booths, while in Phulpur, there are 793 polling centres and 2059 polling booths. The SP's candidate is Nishad Party leader Praveen Kumar Nishad, and the Congress has fielded gynecologist Surheetha Kareem. Polling on the two Lok Sabha seats on Sunday was by and large peaceful.
The elections will be seen as a referendum for Mr Adityanath, as he himself has been a five-time MP from the temple town of Gorakhpur. Prior to Yogi Adityanath, the seat was represented in parliament by his mentor Yogi Avaidyanath thrice. There are 10 candidates in the fray from Gorakhpur, while 22 candidates are contesting from Phulpur. These elections are being viewed as a "warm-up" for the 2019 general elections.
"People will reject the SP-BSP alliance in the bypolls as it was an opportunistic alliance".
