Alam is that in the four assembly constituencies of the district, 21 candidates including one Congress candidate were left behind by the votes cast in NOTA. The maximum NOTA button was used in the Naraini (Secure) seat. Many bigwigs were left behind by the votes cast in NOTA. These include 4 candidates each in Banda Sadar and Tindwari seats, 5 in Naraini and 8 in Baberu.

Congress was once dominated in Banda Sadar
In the 80s, the Congress dominated all the four assembly seats of Banda. After this the vote bank of the Congress kept slipping down. Meanwhile, in 1996, the Congress and BSP alliance once again increased the vote bank of the Congress. In 1996, 2002, 2007 and 2012, Vivek Singh won from Banda assembly seat consecutively and lost the election in 2017, even then he got around 36000 votes. This time his wife contested from SP, who got 66343 votes and Congress got only 1804 votes. From this it can be guessed that the Congress has been almost wiped out from here.
