BJP indulged in 'corrupt practises': Congress on Goa loss

This showed an increase of voted for Congress after the 2015 assembly election while the BJP saw its number of votes dropped by nearly half. The BJP's Ved Prakash is at the third place with 26,406 votes, the Delhi CEO office said.

Results for the by-elections to four assembly seats spread across Goa, Andhra Pradesh and Delhi followed the traditional pattern of the ruling provincial government emerging victorious. Especially given the comfortable margin of more than 24,000 votes with which its candidate, Ram Chander, defeated the BJP's candidate. The voting to the by-election had recorded 45 percent voter turnout on August 23 and used VVPAT machines.

Missing pregnant woman's body found wrapped in plastic, floating in river
Police are still trying to determine if the baby was Ms LaFontaine-Greywind's through DNA testing, but say, "It is very likely". The parents told of Savannah not taking her purse, not answering her phone with her auto remaining in the driveway.

Congress' Surender Kumar, a three-time MLA, finished third though the party sought to find solace in doubling its votes from around 14,000 to 31,919 votes. The Congress, which had till 2013 ruled Delhi for 15 years straight, had drawn a blank in the assembly elections in 2015 and continues to have no presence in the assembly.

Bawana is one of the largest constituencies in Delhi in terms of number of voters (2.94 lakh). While the AAP's victory in Delhi provided the party with the much-needed boost, the BJP's victory in Goa is being read as a sign of what may follow in the next Assembly elections and the bypoll in Andhra Pradesh's Nandyal constituency was a closely contested fight between the ruling TDP and the Opposition. But, as the votes polled in the booths of the slum clusters started coming into the picture, the AAP widened its margin.

Lebanon's army declares ceasefire in fight against IS
The surrender of the remains of the fighters by the extremists took place at the border crossing of Mira. Nusra Front militants and a Syrian rebel group withdrew from Lebanon's border region earlier this month.

Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken said after the results that party's revival process "may be hard but not impossible!" The BJP had hoped to add a fifth seat to its kitty after snatching the Rajouri constituency from AAP in another by-election earlier this year but it had to bite dust. The Congress party finally lost second position as well after 25th round out of total 28 rounds. Kejriwal paid the price of calling Modi names in public ever since the Chief Minister began accusing BJP of trying to create fissures in his party by trying to lure its members away and creating controversies that AAP has found itself surrounded by since it won 67 out of 70 seats in 2015.

The AAP has won this seat again, but it has lost nearly 50,000 votes in just two years in the constituency. Nagi Reddy, who crossed over to the TDP previous year, died in April, leaving the vacancy. As many as 1,413 votes were polled under the "none of the above" (NOTA) category.
