Battle for Bawana: Counting of votes underway

Battle for Bawana: Counting of votes underway”

Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar has won the Panaji by-poll by 4803 votes.

The BJP won both Goa bypolls, in the Panaji and Valpoi constituencies.

In the 70-member Delhi Assembly, the AAP has 65 MLAs, the BJP four whole Congress is hoping to open its account in the House by winning this seat.

While Chodankar told reporters: "I may have lost numerically, but residents of Panaji have given me a lot of love". Party candidate Ram Chander defeated BJP's Ved Prakash by over 24,000 votes. He resigned as an MLA, jumped ship and was soon made a minister in the Parrikar government.

Polling for the by-election in Panaji and Valpoi on August 23.

Parrikar said he was happy with the margin of his victory.

AAP's Bawana victory against BJP was also welcomed by Opposition parties like Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress, as it came a day after a rally hosted by Lalu Prasad's RJD in Patna where all the 17 Opposition parties who had got together during the presidential elections had gathered in a massive show of strength against the ruling BJP. With the wins, the BJP has just made it more hard for the Congress if it had many plans of derailing the government.

Parrikar was sworn in as the chief minister in March 2017 after the BJP formed a coalition government with Goa Forward Party, MGP and independents. Fighting against the odds in a constituency he's hardly familiar with, Chodankar spent two weeks in a house-to-house campaign and polled over 5,000 votes, one of the highest counts the Congress has ever managed in Panaji.

TDP's Bhuma Bramananda Reddy has won the Nandyal seat of Andhra Pradesh 27,456. The Congress finished far behind with just 1,382 votes.

The Nandyal by-poll was necessitated after the death of Bhuma Nagi Reddy, who had in fact quit the YSR Congress past year to join the ruling TDP.

In 2014, Bhuma Nagi Reddy of the YSR Congress had won the seat by a margin of 3,604 votes over Silpa Mohan Reddy, who had then contested as a TDP candidate.
