The bypolls are witnessing a direct contest between the ruling BJP and the opposition Samajwadi Party-Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) alliance. The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Congress are not in the frays. Following defeats in Azamgarh and the Rampur Lok Sabha bypolls, considered the SP's bastions, the Mainpuri parliamentary and the Rampur and Khatauli assembly by-elections have become important for the Akhilesh Yadav-led party and his ally RLD.

However, the bypoll results will not have any impact as the ruling Yogi government has a comfortable majority.

Meanwhile, the BJP is heading for a landslide victory in Gujarat Assembly polls while there is a neck-and-neck fight in Himachal Pradesh between the saffron party and Congress. The BJD is leading in Padmapur bypoll in Odisha.
