The Rampur assembly seat in Uttar Pradesh, which was released after the disqualification of SP leader Mohammad Azam Khan, is one of five seats going for the bypolls

Bypoll to the Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat vacated after the death of Samajwadi party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav will be held on Dec. 5, along with by-elections for five constituencies across as many states, the election commission said on Saturday.

Yadav had passed away last month after a long illness.

The Rampur assembly seat in Uttar Pradesh, which became vacant following the disqualification of SP leader Mohammad Azam Khan, is one of five seats going for the bypolls.

Khan, who was the Rampur MLA, was disqualified by the speaker after being sentenced to three years in prison in a case of hate speech registered against him in April 2019.

Sardarshahar constituency in Rajasthan’s Churu district, another constituency going to the bypoll, became vacant following the death of Congresswoman MLA Bhanwar Lal Sharma on Oct. 9. He was 77.

With his death, Congress now has 107 of the 200 MLAs in the Rajasthan assembly. The BJP has 71 MLA, Rashtriya Loktantrik Party three, CPI(M) and Bhartiya Tribal Party two each, Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) one and 13 independent MLAs. One seat is vacant.

Padampur in Odisha, Kurhani in Bihar and Bhanupratappur in Chhattisgarh are the other meeting places where bypolls will be held.

The vote count will take place on December 8 to coincide with the vote count in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.
