By-elections are being held in Gorakhpur formerly held by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath - and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh.

"The people know that development is the only panacea", he told reporters.

The byelections in Uttar Pradesh are significant since they mark the new alliance of the SP and the BSP which could change the complexion of politics in the state if it proves a success.

Referring to BSP's support to SP in the bypolls, Adityanath, who addressed four rallies in Gorakhpur Friday, said, "When the SP found that the tactic of fielding imported candidate is not working, it mounted elephant (BSP's poll symbol) on bicycle (SP's symbol)?that cycle has already dismantled".

This is unedited, unformatted feed from the Press Trust of India wire. The results for the same will be declared on Wednesday.

In Gorakhpur, the BJP had nominated Upendra Dutt Shukla against SP's Nagendra Pratap Singh Patel and Sureetha Kareem of the Congress.

Votes will be cast in Gorakhpur and Phulpur parliamentary bypolls today. The voters of Mayawatiji have deserted the BSP and have reposed their faith in Modiji, Yogi and BJP.
