Share

RJD's Sarfaraz Alam, son of deceased MP Taslimuddin, who was trailing in initial rounds of counting, has further consolidated his lead margin in Araria Lok Sabha seat where counting of votes is still underway.

The bypolls were the first electoral battle in Bihar after state Chief Minister Nitish Kumar joined hands with the BJP-led NDA to form a government in Bihar after severing ties with the RJD.

Though the RJD lost in Bhabua, the twin victories helped Tejashwi, 28, shed the tag of "bachcha" in politics, as he is often ridiculed by the BJP.

After the 22nd round of counting, RJD's Sarfaraz Alam was leading by around 57,791 votes, in the Araria Lok Sabha constituency.
