Alam, who crossed over from JD (U) to Lalu Prasad's party RJD to contest the bypoll, is son of Taslimuddin.

Numerically, these bypolls might be of less significance, but it is being termed as a litmus test for Bihar's chief minister Nitish Kumar as the people have voted for the first time after the CM pulled out of RJD-Congress alliance and formed a new government with the support of BJP-led NDA. The polling was by and large peaceful, the election official said.

RJD is leading in Jehanabad after 10th round of counting with 29,551 votes.
