In Uttar Pradesh, campaigning for by-election on seven Assembly seats ended this evening. The election will be held on 3rd November and counting will take place on 10th November. 

AIR Correspondence reports, leaders of all major parties have campaigned in favour of their candidates and today on the last day of electioneering they made a last ditch effort to woo the voters. 

BJP senior leader and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, BJP State President Swatantra Dev Singh including other leaders of party addressed  virtual and physical rallies in constituencies. However, senior leaders of other parties like Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav, BSP president Mayawati along with Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra kept themselves aloof from the campaign and have entrusted their local and State rank leaders to lead the electioneering.
 
Altogether there are 88 candidates in the fray for these 7 seats with Bulandshahr seat having the highest number of 18 candidates while the Ghatampur seat has the lowest of 6.
 
According to an Election Commission official, polling parties will be dispatched from the centres to polling booths tomorrow morning. All the booths would abide by the COVID-19 guidelines and would be manned by the Central forces. The seven seats going to by-polls are Naugawan Sadat, Bulandshahar, Tundla, Bangarmau, Ghatampur, Deoria and Malahani. Out of these seven seats, six seats were held by the ruling BJP and one by Samajwadi Party.
