As by-polls are held in Uttar Pradesh, the most attention is on Mainpuri, the seat which was held for years by Mulayam Singh Yadav. Retaining the bastion matters to the Samajwadi Party, which has already lost its strongholds, Azamgarh and Rampur, to the BJP in the June by-polls
Polling in Mainpuri will be held on 5 December while the counting of votes will take place on 8 December
