Today there are seven by-elections, and regional parties hope to shock the BJP.

There are elections in places like Mokama, Munugode, Gola Gokarannath, and Dhamnagar. Election results will be tallied on November 6.
On Thursday, by-elections will be held in six states and seven Assembly districts. Adampur in Haryana, Andheri East in Maharashtra, Gopalganj and Mokama in Bihar, Munugode in Telangana, Gola Gokarannath in Uttar Pradesh, and Dhamnagar in Odisha are among the seats that will be up for election. Regional parties like the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Samajwadi Party (SP), and Biju Janata Dal will face off against the BJP in many of the election battles (BJD). Election results will be tallied on November 6.
What’s at stake: Despite fielding well-known candidates in both of the Assembly by-elections it has faced since taking office in October 2019, the BJP-Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) partnership has lost. The party’s candidate in Baroda was the legendary wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt, while in Ellenabad it was Gobind Kanda, brother of Haryana Lokhit Party founder Gopal Kanda. The ruling alliance will be put to the test in the Adampur byelection.
candidates: The ruling coalition has fielded Bhavya Bishnoi, the son of Kuldeep Bishnoi, and Bhajan Lal, the grandson of a former chief minister. Since 1968, Bhajan Lal’s family has never lost the seat. Jai Prakash, the Congress candidate, has affiliations with practically all of the state’s political parties. Satender Singh of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is running, while Kurdaram Nambardar of the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) is.
Why it’s happening: On August 2, MLA Komatireddy Raj Gopal Reddy resigned due to disagreements with A Revanth Reddy, head of the Telangana Congress. Later on, he joined the BJP.
What’s at stake: The opposition party wants to establish itself as a major player in Telangana, while the ruling TRS wants to stop the BJP from enlarging its presence in the state. The main opposition party, the Congress, appears to have fallen to third place and will work to disprove its detractors.
The TRS and the Left are together. In order to advocate and promote its programs, such as Rythu Bandhu, Dalit Bandhu, free power for the agriculture sector, and farm insurance, the ruling party sent out 14 ministers and at least 50–60 MLAs. The K Chandrashekar Rao-led government’s “broken promises” were emphasized by the BJP campaign, which also made accusations of corruption.
Candidates: The Congress has put forward Palvai Sravanthi Reddy, the daughter of former Rajya Sabha MP Palvai Govardhan Reddy, while the BJP has nominated former MLA Kusukuntla Prabhakar Reddy.
The Gola Gokarnath (Over 3.90 lakh voters)
What’s at stake: The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Congress have opted out of the race, leaving it between the BJP and the SP. The ruling party is engaged in a prestige struggle because it does not want to lose a district that it recently gained. When the BJP returns to power in March, the SP will be able to say that it “failed at administration, law and order, and other parts of governance” if it wins.
Orchard East (2.74 lakh voters)
What’s at stake: As the first election following a mutiny led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and other MLAs, it is a significant struggle for the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena.
Candidates: Rutuja Latke, a member of the Thackeray-led Sena, is running. Six more candidates have been nominated, although none are members of the ruling coalition. Following requests from the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) and the NCP, among others, the BJP withdrew its candidate, Murji Patel. As the Andheri East seat is home to a heterogeneous population of many cases, linguistic groups, and faiths, the social equation there plays a significant role in the election. The votes of the Congress are probably in Rutuja’s favor.
