RJD's Sarfaraz Alam defeated Pradip Kumar Singh in Araria.

Suday Yadav is the son of former state minister Mundrika Singh Yadav, whose death necessitated the bypoll.

Araria was represented by RJD Mohammad Taslimuddin whose death on September 17, 2017 necessitated the bypoll there.

The RJD candidate at Araria Sarfaraz Alam, who crossed over from JD(U) to Lalu Prasad's party to enter into fray in the bypoll, is son of Taslimuddin.

Defeat of JD(U) nominee Abhiram Sharma at Jehanabad is a bad news for chief minister Nitish Kumar who had in July last year dumped the Grand Alliance and joined hands with the BJP to form a coalition government.

From the opposition camp, while Lalu Prasad's party contested Araria and Jehanabad seats it gave Bhabhua to ally Congress in seat-sharing.
