Jayanagar Election Result LIVE Updates: Congress Sowmya Reddy Wins Over 2,500 Votes
Vijaykumar’s brother BN Prahlad and senior Congress leader and former minister Ramalinga Reddy’s daughter Sowmya Reddy were locked in a direct contest for the seat. In all, 19 candidates were in the fray.
The Janata Dal (Secular) had on June 5 pulled out its candidate and extended the party’s support to its ruling coalition partner, the Congress.
Both the Congress and JD(S) had fielded candidates against each other, despite being coalition partners, in the recent election to the Rajarajeshwari Nagar assembly seat in the city.
Congress candidate Munirathna had won the seat, relegating the JD(S) candidate to a distant third behind BJP.
