Congress nominee Ratan Chandra Das secured the third place.

The seat fell vacant due to the death of BJP MLA Dilip Sarkar in April. The bypoll was held on September 23.

The BJP candidate bagged 20,487 votes while the CPM nominee secured 15,211 votes. The Congress candidate got 9,105 votes.

Both the BJP and the CPM got fewer votes in comparison to what they bagged in the Assembly elections.

BJP nominee Sarkar had then secured 28,561 votes while the Left party had got 23,113.

Ratan Das of the Congress had contested in the last Assembly elections from Badharghat and could secure only 505 votes. This time he bagged 9,105 votes.
