Rebel Ravindra Molhu could not even save his seat
Naresh Saini lost to Behat
Left BSP and joined BJP. But as soon as the assembly 2022 trumpet sounded, he again rode on the elephant. He contested 2022 from Rampur Maniharan on a BSP ticket. After the results came on March 10, their hopes were also dashed. He lost to Devendra Nim of BJP by a huge margin of 20,426.
Though Molhu gave a tough fight to Devendra Nim in the 2017 assembly elections, he lost by a margin of 595. Whereas in the 2012 assembly elections, Molhu defeated Vinod Tejian of INC by a huge margin of 26606.

At around 5.30 pm, the result of the city seat came later. Gumbar beat Sanjay Garg by a margin of 1107.
Naresh Saini could not end BJP’s 28-year drought
Jagpal Singh lost from the countryside
From Behat assembly, BJP had nominated Naresh Saini, who had left the Congress. He was the sitting MLA of Congress, but Naresh Saini has not been able to end the 28-year drought in Behat. In 1993, Rani Devlata defeated her rival Jagdish Rana of Janata Dal from Muzaffarabad (now Behat).
Kamal has not got water in the Ghad area for 28 years. Naresh Saini did not live up to the expectations of the BJP. Naresh Saini, who contested on the Congress symbol from Behat assembly in the 2017 assembly elections, had to face defeat in the 2022 elections. In 2017 election, Naresh Saini defeated Mahavir Rana of BJP by a huge margin of 25,586. It is believed that then Imran Masood had put the seat of Behat and Dehat in the court of Congress on his own.
But leaving Imran’s hand has cost Naresh Saini dearly in the 2022 elections. SP candidate Umar Ali Khan defeated Naresh Saini by a huge margin of 38,007. Whereas Mahavir Rana, who contested on BSP ticket in 2012 assembly elections, was defeated by 514 votes after a tough fight. Naresh Saini contested the elections on Congress ticket even then.

Ravindra Molhu lost from Rampur Maniharan
The countryside assembly seat of Saharanpur holds a lot of importance in the state. BSP supremo became MLA twice from here and became Chief Minister of the state both times.
