If the poll is conducted on March 23, the counting of votes will be conducted on the same day and the process will be completed by March 26.

"Given the reports that efforts to form a third front sans Congress have already started, the SP-BSP combine may well join the same leaving the Congress to fend for itself in the state, " political analyst J P Shukla told DH. BSP chief Mayawati had said on Sunday that there was a tacit understanding with the SP for the Rajya Sabha and the Vidhan Parishad elections. "We have spoken to SP and have decided that we will support their Lok Sabha candidates for the bye-polls in Gorakhpur and Phulpu, and [the] SP will support our Rajya Sabha candidate in return", said Mayawati.

According to BJP sources Jaitely would be a party candidate from UP for Rajya Sabha.

BJD is set to win all the three seats with a strength of 117 in the 147-member Assembly.

The Samajwadi Party, which has 47 members in the state assembly, will bag one seat. "So both the parties are expected to win two seats each", a state Assembly official said.

Under such a scenario, the BJP with a considerable chunk of surplus votes, may spoil the opposition's game plan by fielding its ninth candidate and bringing the Opposition to a test. However, the source also said that the final decision regarding the candidates will be taken by the party high command in New Delhi. "It is only a trade-off between them for personal gains".

Although state Congress president Raj Babbar put up a courageous face and sought to make little of the understanding, senior party leaders were anxious as they felt that the party could find itself pushed to the back burner if the "experiment" in the LS by-polls succeeded.

Nine of the 10 seats will fall vacant on April 2. In August past year, the BJP and the Congress had bitterly fought the Rajya Sabha polls.

Those whose term comes to an end on April 2 include the Samajawadi Party's Jaya Bachchan, Naresh Agarwal, Kiranmoy Nanda, Darshan Singh Yadav, Munawar Salim and Alok Tiwari, the BJP's Vinay Katiyar, the BSP's Munquad Ali and the Congress's Pramod Tiwari.
