1 min read

Mysuru: Finally Congress party has wrested Hunsur Assembly constituency from JD(S) in the by-election.

Congress’ H P Manjunath won by a vast margin of 39,727 votes against Vishwanath of BJP. Manjunath secured 92,725 votes against Vishwanath’s, 52,998 votes. JD(S) nominee Somashekar secured 32,895 votes.

In the election held in May 2018, Vishwanath who had been fielded from JD(S) had defeated Manjunath by a margin of over 6,000 votes. Manjunath who had won twice in a row on Cogress ticket in 2008 and 2013 elections, had missed his hat-trick in 2018.

Now, he has succeeded in winning back the lost seat to the party, thus re-establishing the hold of the grand old party in the constituency.

All in the gap of 20 months, foiling BJP’S plan to establish its forte and regional party’s bid to retain the seat.
