Why Arvind Kejriwal's AAP thrashed BJP candidate in Bawana bypoll

The Congress, which finished last, did not mind coming third in the race and was quite happy that it had improved with its performance. The competition was filled with ups and downs in Bawana constituency of Delhi with AAP and Congress switching the top place frequently.

BJP's Ved Prakash stood second and ahead of Congress Party with 35834 votes. The TDP candidate, Bhuma Bramananda Reddy won a little over 50 per cent of the votes polled, defeating his closest rival, Shilpa Mohan Reddy of the YSR Congress in an election that saw a voter-turnout that exceeded 80 per cent.

The AAP has received 59,886 (45.4%) votes and won the Bawana seat again.

One of the 12 reserved constituencies, Bawana has one of the largest concentration of voters-2.94 lakh-and is dotted with 26 villages, colonies, and slums.

Ruling parties in Delhi, Goa and Andhra Pradesh were in celebration mode as their candidates secured victory today in the August 23 bypolls to four Assembly seats.Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar secured Panaji, defeating Congress candidate Girish Chodankar.

The BJP has fielded Ved Prakash who had won from the constituency in the 2015 elections as an AAP candidate.

Almost 75 percent voting was recorded during the 23 August bypolls in Goa. Just weeks before the election, former Congress minister Babush Monserrate, who was expected to take on Parrikar in Panaji, switched camps and moved to the Goa Forward Party, which is tied up with the BJP.

Many AAP leaders expressed satisfaction that the election was held using VVPAT. Yet such a dynamic seems to have been lost on the top leadership of the BJP as they have supported and tried to incite similar attacks on the Chief Minister, using his party members such as Kapil Mishra, among others.

The earlier rounds of counting had witnessed the AAP being relegated to the third position in the national capital. The election was necessary because within six months of becoming the Chief Minister, sitting MLA Siddharth Kuncolienkar had vacated the seat for Parrikar.

Andhra Pradesh's ruling Telugu Desam Party snatched the Nandyal seat by a huge margin.

The Nandyal by-poll was necessitated after the death of Bhuma Nagi Reddy, who had in fact quit the YSR Congress previous year to join the ruling TDP.

Defeating the chief minister in a constituency that has remained saffron - though not always with significant vote margins - for nearly a quarter century was always going to be a tough prospect for the Congress.
