New Delhi: Senior Congress leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram on Friday attempted to give a different spin to the results of by-elections in 10 Assembly constituencies.

In early morning tweets, Chidambaram pointed out that the results were even since non-BJP parties had won half the seats.

The Congress retained the Ater seat in Bhind district in MP, which has a BJP government, by a close margin of 857 votes. Ater had witnessed violence on the polling day.

Of the 10 Assembly seats across seven states and Delhi where bypolls were held, the BJP bagged five, while the Congress won three and the TMC and the JMM one each, with all but two of the seats being retained.

Of the five seats won by the BJP, the party retained three while it wrested the remaining two from the AAP in Delhi and the BSP in Rajasthan — Rajouri Garden and Dholpur, respectively.

The BJP retained one seat each in Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Assam winning from Bandhavgarh, Bhoranj (SC) and Dhemaji, respectively.

Besides Ater, the ruling Congress in Karnataka retained the Nanjangud and Gundlupet Assembly seats in which the party and the BJP had played for high stakes.

The TMC kept the Kanthi Dakshin seat in West Bengal where the BJP finished second while the JMM retained Littipara (ST) Assembly seat in Jharkhand defeating ruling BJP.
