The counting of votes completed and the results of 14 bypolls have been declared. 

BJP has won only two, Palghar (Maharashtra) and Tharali (Uttarakhand), out of 15 seats declared. The saffron party managed to win against Shiv Sena's Shriniwas Wanga in Palghar.

RLD's Tabassum Hassan, backed by opposition parties has defeated BJP's Mriganka Singh in the much debated Kairana Lok Sabha assembly seat.

The result from Karnataka's Rajarajeshwari Nagar was also declared today. Congress candidate Muniratna has won by 41162 votes.

Tight security arrangements have been made to ensure safe and fair counting.

Lok Sabha Bypoll:

The Lok Sabha seats which went for polls were; Palghar and Bhandara-Gondiya in Maharashtra; the politically-crucial Kairana Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh, and Nagaland parliamentary constituency.

It will be a litmus test for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as a positive outcome is necessary for the saffron party to maintain its majority in the Lok Sabha.

Assembly Bye-election:

The by-elections were held in Legislative Assemblies of Shahkot (Punjab), Tharali (Uttarakhand), Ampati (Meghalaya), Chengannur (Kerala), Jokihat (Bihar), Gomia (Jharkhand), Silli (Jharkhand), Maheshtala (West Bengal), Noorpur (Uttar Pradesh), Palus Kadegaon (Maharashtra).
