The BJP is leading in 59 of the state’s 80 seats. The alliance is ahead in 20 seats and the Congress in one — Sonia Gandhi’s Raebareli. Congress chief Rahul Gandhi trailed BJP’s Smriti Irani in Amethi, the Gandhi family bastion from where no Gandhi has ever lost. Prime Minister Narendra Modi led by comfortable margins in Varanasi and Varun Gandhi and Hema Malini of the BJP won in Pilbhit and Mathura respectively. SP’s Akhilesh Yadav and Azam Khan, however, led by a steady margin in Azamgarh and Rampur respectively. Union ministers Rajnath Singh led in Lucknow and Maneka Gandhi is engaged in a see-saw battle in Sultanpur.
