By-elections in Uttar Pradesh were held in 11 assembly seats in which the ruling BJP won only seven seats and the Pratapgarh seat has been won by its ally, Apna Dal. The BJP has won the Iglas, Lucknow Cantt, Govind Nagar, Manikpur, Ghosi, Balha and Ganghoh seats.

Political analysts feel that the absence of the Modi factor in the by-elections has dented the BJP.
