CHITRAKOOT: Congress candidate Nilanshu Chaturvedi registered a victory in the Chitrakoot assembly by-polls in Madhya Pradesh and defeated the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Shankar Dayal Tripathi by over 14,000 votes on Sunday.

The counting till now shows that the seat will go to Congress, but what happens here does not denote the mood of the state: BJP.

During the counting, when the Congress candidate was leading by a huge margin, BJP leader Nand Kumar had said that it would not reflect on the party's performance elsewhere.

The counting of votes began at around 8.00 am amid tight security.

At least 257 polling booths with VVPATs (Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail) machines were set up for the elections.

According to the Election Commission (EC), there were 1.98 lakh voters in the Chitrakoot assembly constituency.

The polling was held on November 9 for the Chitrakoot assembly seat.

The by-elections were necessitated following the death of Congress MLA Prem Singh (65) after prolonged illness on May 29 this year. Singh was a three-time MLA from Chitrakoot, from where he had won in 1998, 2003 and 2013.
