The RJD candidate Sarfaraz Alam has won the Araria Lok Sabha seat. The party has already won the Jehanabad bypoll. Both, Araria Lok Sabha seat and Jehanabad Assembly seat were held by RJD. Meanwhile, the BJP has retained Bhabua Assembly seat. Numerically, these bypolls might be of less significance, but it is being termed as a litmus test for Bihar’s chief minister Nitish Kumar as the people have voted for the first time after the CM pulled out of RJD-Congress alliance and formed a new government with the support of BJP-led NDA. This is also a test for NDA's unity and strength as Jitan Ram Manjhi, former CM and leader of Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM), left NDA and joined ‘mahagathbandhan’ with RJD and Congress just before the by-elections.
