KARNATAKA BYELECTION RESULTS: KEY POINTS
HIGHLIGHTS Stakes are high for the ruling JD(S)-Congress, as the two arch rivals have reached an electoral understanding for the first time after forming the government A total of 31 candidates were in the fray for the bypolls from all the five constituencies
NEW DELHI: The results for three Lok Sabha and two assembly constituencies in Karnataka were declared on Tuesday as counting began with a total of 1,248 counting staff deployed. Polling for the byelections took place on Saturday. Here are the latest developments: * Congress’s AS Nyamagouda wins Jamkhandi assembly seat by a margin of 39480 votes. He won against BJP’s Srikant Kulkarni. * Anitha Kumaraswamy from the JD(S) wins Ramanagaram assembly seat with a margin of 109137 votes. She won against BJP’s L Chandrashekar, who had pulled out of the contest but officially still remains the party candidate. * BJP’s BY Raghavendra leads by 36467 votes in Shivamogga. * Congress’ VS Ugrappa leads by 184203 votes in Bellary. * JD(S) LR Shivaramegowda leads by 121963 votes in Mandya. * Stakes are high for the ruling JD(S)-Congress, as the two arch rivals have reached an electoral understanding for the first time after forming the government and if approved by the voters, can change the state’s political scenario. * A total of 31 candidates were in the fray from all the five constituencies, though the contest is mainly between the Congress-JDS combine and the BJP. * The bypoll results will determine the fate of Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy’s wife Anita Kumaraswamy, state BJP chief B S Yeddyurappa’s son B Y Raghavendra and former Chief Minister S Bangarappa’s son Madhu Bangarappa and others. * In Ramanagara, Anitha Kumaraswamy is set to win with virtually no opposition as the BJP candidate L Chandarshekar dropped out of the contest and rejoined the Congress. * Among the most closely-watched constituencies in the bypolls are Ballary and Shivamogga. While sons of three former chief ministers were pitted against each other in Shivamogga, it is a prestige battle between Congress leader DK Shivakumar and BJP leader B Sreeramulu. * The byelections were necessitated after Yeddyurappa (Shivamogga) and Sriramalu (Ballari), and C SPuttaraju of JD(S) (Mandya) resigned as MPs on their election to the assembly in May this year. * Bypolls to Jamkhandi assembly seat was caused by the death of Congress MLA Siddu Nyamagouda, while Ramanagara fell vacant after Kumaraswamy gave up the seat, preferring Chennapatna, the other constituency from where he had won.
