Congress’ T Raghumurthy was on Saturday declared winner of the Challakere Assembly constituency becoming the first registered win as the counting of votes progressed for the May 10 Karnataka Assembly polls. Raghumurthy defeated Janata Dal (Secular’s) Ravish Kumar with a margin of 16,450, according to the Election Commission.
According to the ECI’s latest data at 12.30 pm, Congress is leading in 127 seats, while the BJP is ahead in 68 seats. Celebrations had begun at Congress headquarters in Delhi in anticipation of victory as the election trends trickled in. Former Karnataka CM and JD(S) leader HD Kumaraswamy visited a temple in Bengaluru this morning. The exit polls, which were released after the polling ended in Karnataka, predicted that Janata Dal-Secular JD(S) would not touch the 37 seats it won in the 2018 polls but will continue to be a strong regional player in the state. The fiercely contested election that saw high-pitch campaigns from the political parties is crucial for both BJP and Congress. (ANI)
