In a setback to the ruling BJP in Karnataka, the Congress today wrested the Udupi-Chikmagalur Lok Sabha seat from it with party candidate K Jayaprakash Hegde emerging victorious in the bypoll by a margin of 45,724 votes.

Hegde, a former minister, defeated his nearest BJP rival V Sunil Kumar in a loss of face to BJP as the constituency was represented by D V Sadananda Gowda before becoming the Chief Minister.

Hegde secured 3,98,723 votes as against 3,52,999 by Sunil Kumar.
The electoral loss for BJP comes at time when the party is in a turmoil following the revolt led by B S Yeddyurappa for his reinstatement as Chief Minister.
Earlier News:
Udupi, March 21: Congress candidate K. Jayaprakash Hegde has won the Udupi-Chikmagalur Loksabha byelection by over 46,007 votes against BJP’s Sunil Kumar on Wednesday. Mr. Hegde who maintained lead over his rival throughout the various rounds of counting finally won over his nearest BJP rival by a massive margin.

 However, the details are available only for the ninth round where Mr. Hegde (3,71,162) leads by 29,587 votes over Sunil Kumar, who has secured 2,14,068 votes while JDS candidate secured 43,662 votes after the ninth round of counting Congress candidate maintained lead over the BJP rival in all the eight Assembly segments namely Kapu, Sringeri, Mudigere, Tarikere, Udupi, Karkala, Chikmagalur and KundapurCounting for the March 18 bypolls to Udupi-Chikmagalur Lok Sabha seat has begun on Tuesday morning.

With BJP government in Karnataka facing turmoil, there is intense anticipation and anxiety in ruling and Opposition Congress circles over the outcome of the bypolls.

Tight security arrangements have been made for the counting. About 66 per cent of 12.53 lakh electorate had cast their votes. The bypolls has become a prestigious battle for BJP, particularly Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda, who had vacated the seat upon his elevation as chief minister.

Congress is trying to revive its electoral fortunes in the state. Former MLA, V Sunil Kumar of BJP has been locked in a fierce contest with Congress’s K Jayaprakash Hegde. Bojegowda of JDS is also in the fray.

As many as eight halls of TA Pai English Medium School, are being be used for the purpose of counting.

Superintendent of Police Dr Boralingaiah M B said that around 200 civil police personnel including senior police officials have been deployed for the purpose.

As many as four platoons of Karnataka State Reserve Police (KSRP) and additional forces from District Armed Reserve (DAR) have also been stationed at the venue.

This is the second bypoll being held in the state after Gowda assumed office. BJP was mauled in the byelection to Bellary Rural Assembly seat last year, which was won by independent B Sreeramulu, who was not long ago a key leader of the ruling party before falling out with it.
