BJP requires 36 votes to win in UP

"I hope they effectively voice the aspirations of the states they will represent", he tweeted. HIGHLIGHTS - This is the victory of democracy and it is for the welfare of Uttar Pradesh: Mahendra Nath Pandey, BJP State President. "Though the ruling TRS has a comfortable strength in the 119-member Assembly to win all three seats, the Congress fielded its candidate despite not having enough strength making the polling inevitable".

The SP had 10 surplus votes after it elected Jaya Bachchan who needed 37 votes.

Vijay Mishra of the Nishad Party, a Samajwadi ally in the Gorakhpur parliamentary by-election, too refused to support Ambedkar and went with the BJP.Counting was delayed for about two hours when Suheldev rebel Kailash Sonkar complained that some BJP members had tried to damage his ballot realising he was going to vote for a non-BJP nominee. One member of the Indian Union Muslim League could not vote due to ill-health. However once the results began to trickle in and the SP realised that the BSP candidate would lose, the programmes were cancelled.

Congress's Abhishek Manu Singhvi and four Trinamool Congress candidates - Nadimul Haque, Subhasish Chakraborty, Abir Biswas and Santunu Sen - won the Rajya Sabha election. The argument was about giving the second chance to vote for a Congress leader. "Anti-Dalit BJP ensured defeat of a Dalit candidate". Samajwadi Party nominee Jaya Bachchan was re-elected for her straight fourth term. Rajya Sabha elections are being held in Uttar Pradesh (10 seats), Kerala (1), Chhattisgarh (1), Jharkhand (2), Telangana (3), Karnataka (4), and West Bengal (5). The BJP has enough MLAs to win eight seats comfortably.

80-year-old Kumar, a newspaper baron and a former Union Minister, secured 89 votes as against 40 that Babu Prasad got.

Congress's Chandrasekhar received 46 votes, Hanumanthaiah 44 and Hussain 42.

In Telangana, Telangana Rashtra Samithi candidates B Prakash, B Lingaiah Yadav and J Santosh Kumar were elected to the Rajya Sabha. It has now widened the gap between it and the opposition Congress. The BJP now has 58 members in the Rajya Sabha followed by 54 of the Congress.

Similarly the court decision of denying permission to the two imprisoned MLAs SP and the BSP each was paid off the BJP. Mayawati was heavily depending on the SP's nine votes, Congress's seven and Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD)'s one vote.

Taking a dig at the SP-BSP bonhomie, CM Yogi Adityanath said: "Is election mein Samajwadi Party ka avsarwadi chehra pradesh ko dikha".

All Indai Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (seven MLAs) supported the TRS. However based on the number of MLAs in various assemblies, BJP has already won 16 seats, Congress has won 05, BJD has won 03, JD 02, TDP 02, JD (U) 02 and YSRCP 01 seat. Seventeen of BJP nominees were among these 33.
