According to trends available by noon, Modi had secured 96,243 votes as against Kejriwal's 27,101.

Sensing a certain victory for their leader from this eastern UP Lok Sabha seat, BJP supporters started celebrating at the Paharia Sabzi Mandi on the outskirts of the city, where counting of votes is in progress.
