In a major gain for the Samajwadi Party, Asim Raja, the protege of disqualified MLA Azam Khan, is leading from the Rampur Sadar seat. BJP's Akash Saxena, son of former BJP MLA Shiv Bahadur Saxena, is trailing by a slim margin. Raja is leading by over 6000 votes, according to the Election Commission's information on the UP Assembly bypolls. Madan Bhaiya of the RLD is leading BJP's Rajkumari by over 6000 votes in Khatauli. Dimple Yadav, the wife of SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, will win the Mainpuri parliamentary seat by a record margin. 

The Mainpuri seat was Mulayam Singh Yadav's bastion. The massive margin by which Dimple Yadav is leading clearly shows the voters have not forgotten their loyalty to the late politician. Yadav is leading BJP's Raghuraj Shakya by over 76000 votes.   

The bypolls for these seats were held on December 5.
