The Bharatiya Janata Party won four of the seven assembly seats whose results were declared today.
The BJP has won in Uttar Pradesh’s Gola Gokrannath, Haryana’s Adampur, Bihar’s Gopalganj, and Odisha’s Dhamnagar.
Rashtriya Janata Dal has won in Bihar’s Mokama and K Chandrashekar’s Rao’s Telangana Rashtriya Samithi won in Munugode.
Uddhav Thackeray’s faction won its first election after a BJP-backed coup led by Eknath Shinde split Shiv Sena.
Of the seven seats, the BJP held three, the Congress two, while the Shiv Sena and the RJD had one each before bypolls were necessitated.
None of these contests is likely to upset the math for current state governments.
