It was a bad day for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), as the counting for the by-polls in two Lok Sabha (LS) seats of Gorakpur and Phulpur began this morning. While the Opposition Samajwadi Party (SP) took an early lead, it won Phulpur seat with a majority of 59,000 votes. In Bihar, Lalu Prasad's Rashtriy Janata Dal (RJD) won Araria LS seat, defeating BJP. Added to this, BJP is set to lose its bastion, in Gorakhpur also. Even Jehanabad in Bihar has gone to RJD.
