NEW DELHI, Sep 27 (TIWN): The counting of votes is underway for four assembly seats where by elections were held earlier this week. Uttar Pradesh's Hamirpur, Chhattisgarh's Dantewada, Kerala's Pala and Tripura's Badharghat went to polls on September 23. Both the ruling Congress and the BJP are eyeing victory in the Maoist-affected seat of Dantewada where bypoll was necessitated after the death of sitting BJP MLA Bhima Mandavi in a Maoist attack in April this year. The bypoll to the Hamirpur constituency saw a four-cornered contest, with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Bahujan Samaj Party, Samajwadi Party and the Congress fielding their candidates. The ruling CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front has won the by election to Pala assembly constituency, wresting the seat from the opposition Congress-led United Democratic Front. The win has come as a huge relief to the LDF after its rout in the Lok Sabha polls. The by election to the Badharghat constituency was necessitated due to the death of ruling BJP MLA Dilip Sarkar in April this year.
