The RJD registered emphatic victories in the Araria Lok Sabha and Jehanabad assembly seats yesterday.

In Araria, RJD candidate Sarfaraz Alam was leading by more than 60,000 votes over the BJP's Pradeep Kumar Singh.

Mumbai: A day after Lalu Prasad Yadav-led Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) retained the Araria constituency in Bihar bypolls, Union Minister Giriraj Singh on Thursday provoked a huge controversy by commenting the district will become a "hub of terror". The BJP is leading in Bhabua while RJD leads again in Jehanabad.

Buoyed by the by-poll victory in Bihar, RJD MLAs today staged a demonstration outside the state assembly demanding resignation of chief minister Nitish Kumar over the ruling coalition's defeat in the by-elections.

The bypolls to all the three seats were necessitated by the deaths of the incumbents. While BJP fielded candidates in Araria and Bhabhua, the JD (U) was in the fray in Jehanabad, which is almost 60 km from capital Patna.

Sharma lost to Suday Yadav, the son of Mundrika Singh Yadav, senior RJD leader who passed away past year thus necessitating special poll for his seat.

Rinki is the widowed wife of Anand Pandey, the former elected MLA of the constituency.

Two little girls who were the subject of an AMBER alert after they were abucuted by their father have been safely located. He is described as a black male, in his 40s, 5 ft. "I do feel like I'm at chance of being hurt or worse by him".

"This is not only a threat to Bihar but also to the country".

JD (U) candidate Abhiram Sharma lost to Suday Yadav of RJD at Jehanabad by over 35,000 votes.

Ahmad said the trend in Araria is also an answer to BJP state president Nityanand Rai's comment that Sarfaraz's victory will turn Araria into a hub of ISI and Pradip's victory will turn into a citadel of nationalists.

The BJP, which was till then in opposition, offered its support to Kumar following which the latter formed a new government and returned to the NDA.

RJD's Sarfaraz Alam, who was declared a victor, comprehensively beat his opponent Pradip Kumar Singh of BJP.

Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in 2014, Giriraj had sent the BJP ducking for cover when he had said that those opposing Narendra Modi will be sent to Pakistan.
