Stakes High for BJP, Congress & JD(S) in Karnataka

Stakes are high for the ruling BJP and Opposition Congress and JD(S) in Karnataka as the outcome in the bypolls to two Assembly constituencies that witnessed weeks of spirited campaigning will be known on Tuesday.

Though the results will have no bearing on the stability of the BS Yediyurappa government, it would be seen in many quarters as a reflection on its performance, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Votes polled in the 3 November bypolls to Sira in Tumakuru district and Rajarajeshwari Nagar (R R Nagar) would be taken up for counting on Tuesday at 8 am and the results are expected to be in by afternoon.

Madhya Pradesh: A 'Mini Assembly' Bypoll

As many as 28 seats in Madhya Pradesh voted in the by-elections, making this almost like a mini-Assembly election.

At stake are the political fortunes of a number of key leaders in Madhya Pradesh politics: Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, former CMs Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh, Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and of course the man at the centre of the entire battle – Congress-turned-BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia.

After all, these bypolls were necessitated after Scindia along with his loyal MLAs switched over to the BJP camp, bringing down the Kamal Nath-led Congress government in March this year.
