This is likely to have a good effect on the election result. (I also) appeal to people to participate in the voting exercise enthusiastically,” she added.The Azamgarh seat fell vacant after Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Mohammed Azam Khan quit as a member of parliament (MP) after being elected a member of the legislative assembly (MLA) in March.The seat will see a triangular contest between the BJP"s Dinesh Lal Yadav "Nirhua", a famous Bhojpuri actor-singer; the SP’s Dharmendra Yadav and the BSP’s Shah Alam alias Guddu Jamali.The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is eyeing to bolster its strength in the Lok Sabha further through the bypoll, while the SP would go the extra mile to protect its pocket borough.In Azamgarh, of the total 18.38 lakh voters, there are 9,70,249 male, 8,67,942 female and 36 third gender electors.PTI CDN SRY
