Bypoll results 2018 LIVE updates: After a close fight in Mandalgarh Assembly seat, Congress’ Vivek Bhakad leading with 1,800 votes

Published

Former Rajasthan Ashok Gehlot said, “This bypoll is a vote against BJP’s divisive politics. Apart from changing names of Congress-era schemes, Vasundhara Raje government hasn’t done anything the past 4 years. Unemployment is hurting the youth. Today’s trends can be seen as precursor to not just state Assembly polls later this year but also next Lok Sabha polls.”
It is a popularity test for chief minister Vasundhara Raje this bypolls. The BJP has been in power in the state since 2013 and in the 2014 Lok Sabha election had won all 25 seats.

The Congress, led by state chief Sachin Pilot, campaigned aggressively for the bye-elections. It’s a prestige battle for Pilot, who was the Ajmer member of Parliament before he lost the seat to the BJP as a Modi wave swept the state.

As Congress gained a massive lead in Ajmer and Alwar districts of the state, Pilot said, “Initial trends from Rajasthan are a mandate against the government, I hope our leads will increase even more. Vasundhara ji and her government have been totally rejected by people.”

In Bengal, the fight for both the Lok Sabha and Assembly seat is expected to be a straight contest between the ruling Trinamool Congress and BJP, which has been struggling to find a foothold in Mamata’s bastion.

In Rajasthan, the bypolls are not only a test for Chief Minister Raje, but also for Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot, who has been campaigning aggressively in Alwar and Ajmer.

It is being termed as a ‘semi-final’ ahead of the all-crucial Rajasthan Assembly polls scheduled for the second half of 2018. These seats went to polls on January 29 and counting is expected to start shortly.

Counting of votes for the Rajasthan bypolls in two Lok Sabha and one Assembly constituency, a crucial contest ahead of the Assembly elections due later this year, will take place on Thursday.

The counting of votes of the Alwar and Ajmer Lok Sabha seats will be done in the respective constituencies, whereas it will take place in Bhilwara for the Mandalgarh Assembly seat, a spokesperson of the state election department said.

A total of 42 candidates are in the fray for the bypolls to the three seats, the election to which was held on Monday. Voting in bypolls for Ajmer and Alwar Lok Sabha constituencies and Mandalgarh Assembly seat in Rajasthan was held on Monday, recording polling percentages of 65 percent, 62 percent and 80 percent respectively.

In Alwar, Jaswant Singh Yadav of BJP and Karan Singh Yadav of the Congress have contested the election, while Raghu Sharma of the Congress and BJP’s Ram Swaroop Lamba locked horns in Ajmer.

In Mandalgarh, BJP’s Shakti Singh Hada and Congress’s Vivek Dhakad are poised for a tough fight.

On Monday, a technical error in an Electronic Voting Machine in Kekadi village was reported, due to which voting was stopped for some time. In Keladi’s Manda, villagers boycotted polling to protest inadequate water supply. They also rued that their village roads were in bad condition. Dense fog in Alwar resulted in a low turnout in the first hour after the beginning of polling, but voting picked up after 9.30 am. Voting percentage witnessed further increase afternoon in all three constituencies as voters in large numbers came out to votes.

The bypolls on all the three seats were necessitated after the sudden death of BJP MPs Sanwarlal Jat from Ajmer, Mahant Chand Nath Yogi from Alwar, and MLA Kirti Kumari from Mandalgarh.

Queen Kangana Ranaut has been working hard on the sets of her new film, Manikarnika. The movie is directed by Krrish, Telugu young director who National Award winning film, Kanche and also historical fiction, Gautamiputra Satakarni last year. He got this offer after successfully completing the movie Gautamiputra Satakarni in less budget and in planned number of days.

Baahubali writer, Vijayendra Prasad wrote the screenplay of the film and it is said to be one of his dreams to write a movie on the great warrior queen.

Kangana Ranaut completed almost 90% of her work for the film. Soon, the movie theatrical trailer and songs will be released to kick start the promotions. The movie is initially planned for an April release but it could release in the month of June, due to few delays in the shoot.

Karni Sena took the baton of promoting Padmaavat by protesting the release of the movie. They disrupted the shoot, slapped Sanjay Leela Bhanshali and even warned the makers to not release. They made the Governments of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana, Bihar ban the movie from release.

Went to Supreme Court to stay the movie release and once, it released they burnt the buses and free screens in huge malls. After all that, they recently agreed their mistake and announced that they mistook the intentions of the makers. Now, they have asked Governments of various states to show the film to everyone.

Sarwa Brahmin Mahasabha decided to do the same for Manikarnika. Till today, they haven’t raised any objections, but now they are saying the makers are planning to destroy the image of great Queen by showing her having a relationship with a British officer. They are demanding that the movie should be shown to them first and then only it should release. The makers have made it clear that they took Government permission and submitted the draft early for no objection certificate.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we are sure couples are busy planning their romantic dates already. 14th February is celebrated all over the world and you can literally feel the love in the air. While many believe it’s a bit cliched and you don’t need a day to proclaim your love for special someone. There are others who don’t mind enjoying it with their partners and make them feel loved. The couples will definitely have a reason to celebrate and plan some candlelight dinners with a bouquet of roses as a customary ritual and gift, the ones who are single and ready to mingle shouldn’t be disappointed either.

With a bunch of our dashing B-town boys who are pretty single, there can never be a reason to be sad and heartbroken. While popular names like Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and even Sushant Singh Rajput are already taken, there are others who are still available. And we bet, if given a chance, you, too, will love to date them on Valentine’s Day. What if we ask you to chose your date between Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan or Arjun Kapoor? Whom will you pick? Tough question, right? Well, we can help you with it. We elaborate on who’s an ideal choice and the reason why you should date them.

Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir Kapoor is easily the most eligible bachelor in town. He’s smart and his droopy eyes can make any girl go weak in her knees. If we have to name someone Prince Charming, Ranbir is the only name that comes to our mind. Also there has to be a reason why beauties like Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif have dated him in the past. His charm has a long lasting effect, even on divas, and this itself should motivate you enough to vote for him.

Varun Dhawan

They say girls like humour and they love guys with good comic timing. Who else but Varun Dhawan fits in this category? We have already seen him ace the comic genre with hits like Judwaa 2 and Main Tera Hero. Varun is funny and quite the boy of every girl’s dream. And last but not the least, he’ll give you numerous reasons to flaunt your million dollar smile on any given day.

Sidharth Malhotra

When we say tall, dark and handsome, there’s only name that fits the bell – Sidharth Malhotra. He is incredibly stylish and his boyish charm works wonders on girls. His athletic physique, on the other hand, makes us swoon over him. Apart from his good looks, his coy smile and infectious persona should be the major reason for you to pick him as your date for Valentine’s Day.

Aditya Roy Kapur

Have you seen Aditya Roy Kapur’s hot bod? If yes, you won’t need a reason to not see him as your Mr Right. And to top that, he has dimples. Yes we say it again ‘DIMPLES.’ What else do you even need? Shah Rukh Khan is unfortunately taken and apart from him, Aditya is the only actor who has such cute dimples. SRK fans can pick him up right away.

Arjun Kapoor

You always need a good friend in your partner and Arjun Kapoor can be one. He’ll listen to you when you want him to and advise you, if need be. He’s the kind of guy you take home to meet your parents. There’s no better partner than a best friend. And always remember, your best friend can be your partner but seldom can your partner be your best friend. After all Shah Rukh Khan had once said, ‘Pyaar Dosti Hai.’
