Bihar Bypolls Results 2021 Latest Update: The counting of votes for Tarapur and Kusheshwar Asthan assembly constituencies seats in Bihar will be held tomorrow. The seats were earlier held by the ruling JD(U). Kusheshwar Asthan witnessed a voter turnout of around 49 per cent while Tarapur registered around 50 per cent voting. There are 17 candidates in all – eight from Tarapur and nine from Kusheshwar Asthan.

While JD(U) will try to show its victory as people’s trust in the government, the RJD is keen to bring in front the alleged misrule of the NDA. In Tarapur, which has fallen vacant upon Mewa Lal Chaudhary’s demise, the JD(U) has fielded Rajiv Kumar Singh while in the reserved Kusheshwar Asthan, debutant Awadh Bhushan Hazari seeks to retain for his party, the seat his father Shashi Bhushan Hazari had won three times in a row. In Tarapur, which has so far sent only Yadavs or Koeris to the assembly, the RJD has fielded Arun Sah, a Vaishya, seeking to win over a community that has traditionally been with the BJP and its allies. Similarly, in Kusheshwar Asthan the RJD has fielded Ganesh Bharti, who belongs to the Musahar community which aspires to get its due among the Dalits.

The Congress fielded its candidate against ally RJD accusing it of not abiding by the coalition-dharma. The RJD’s announcement of candidates for both seats, without taking into confidence the Congress which had contested Kusheshwar Asthan in assembly polls last year, proved a bone of contention. The party has fielded Atirek Kumar from Kusheshwar Asthan while from Tarapur, it has fielded Rajiv Kumar Mishra, a well-known social worker.
