In 2018 UP and Bihar by-polls elections BJP Were succeed to seal only one seat, by Pinky Pandey, who won the Bhabua seat by 15,490 votes. And his comments were echoed by BJP MP Gopal Narayan Singh who said that Kishanganj, Katihar and Araria (all in Bihar) are slowly turning into Pakistan.

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. Now, the JD (U) is in alliance with the BJP and has put up its candidate to take on the RJDs nominee.

In Jehanabad, RJD's victor Suday Yadav is son of Mundrika Singh Yadav, former state minister and a close associate of Lalu Prasad, whose death necessitated the byelection.

The results in Jehanabad were on expected lines, with the RJD candidate Suday Yadav, son of late RJD MLA Mundrika Yadav, bagging the seat.

The bye-elections were necessitated in both the constituencies following the death of the incumbent legislators. Similarly, the EBC-Mahadalit social equation woven by chief minister Nitish Kumar after coming to power in 2005 has failed to work.

While Nitish has been saying he switched allies in Bihar's best interests, the Opposition said on Wednesday the results were a "slap on his face for "insulting" Bihar's 2015 mandate".
