New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Nalin Kohli on Tuesday refused to comment on the initial trends of the bypolls, adding that the final results of the bypolls must be awaited.

Kohli told ANI, "When the counting has started I don't think I need to comment. The result is locked in the boxes. Let's wait for the final results."

Counting of votes in three Lok Sabha and 33 Assembly constituencies for the by polls began this morning.

BJP is leading at seven out of the total nine Assembly seats that went to polls in Gujarat, while the Congress is leading at two seats.

In Uttar Pradesh, the ruling Samajwadi Party is leading at six out of 11 Assembly seats as well as the Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat.

Vadodara Lok Sabha Seat and Maninagar Assembly seat were vacated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while eight other Assembly seats were vacated following BJP MLAs election for Lok Sabha.

Polling in Medak Parliamentary constituency was also necessitated due to the resignation of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao from the seat.

The Assembly by-poll elections were held across 10 states on September 13.
