Daijiworld Media Network - Sullia

Sullia, May 15: S Angara of the BJP has managed to retain his Sullia seat for the sixth consecutive time.

S Angara secured 95,205 while Dr Raghu from the Congress garnered 69,137 votes. Raghu of the BSP has secured 1,472 votes. 

S Angara speaking to Daijiworld said, “I am thankful to people who elected me as their representative for a record term. It shows how they love me and how satisfied they are with my service in the constituency. My people are always with Hindutva and development. Many tried to defeat me with false allegations spreading fake news, but my people supported me and gave them a befitting answer. I congratulate the people for throwing out the Siddaramaiah government.”

Counting of votes is being held at Mahatma Gandhi Centenary Higher Primary School, Bondel (Belthangady, Moodbidri and Mangaluru North) and Mahatma Gandhi Centenary PU College, Bondel (Mangaluru South, Mangaluru, Bantwal, Puttur and Sullia).

The Bharatiya Janatha Party opened its account in the crucial assembly elections with its candidate from Moodbdri constituency Umanath Kotian who won by more than 22,000 votes by defeating his rival Abhayachandra Jain of Congress. Umanath Kotian secured 51351 votes followed by Abhaychandra Jain with 31371 votes.

Meanwhile, the Congress party has retained the Ullal Assembly Constituency seat with its candidate U T Khader winning the assembly election. He defeated his nearest BJP rival Santhosh Kumar Rai by 35,594 votes. Santhosh Rai Boliyar secured 20561 votes followed by K Ashraf from the JD(S) who secured 2028 votes.

Leads put out by the Election Commission of India on the Karnataka Assembly results show BJP ahead of Congress with 81 seats to the incumbent government’s 48, while the JD(S) is definitely emerging as an important third factor with 36 seats.

Counting of Karnataka votes began sharp at 8 am on Tuesday, May 15.

Counting is on in 222 constituencies of the 224-seat Assembly. Voting was not held in two seats. Any party that touches 112 will get the clean majority to form government.

    Mr.S Angara retains Sullia seat for sixth consecutive time but still unable to be recognised in BJP with minister.
    Is he sidelined or incapable of responsibility?

    He must be having people's choice of his region but not pro development as I see in his own constituency.

    Jai Hind

    Please explain your "development " do you know about sullya 30 years back and now ? Mr Angar is winning for 6th time that means last 25 years he is MLA and compare Sullya of 25years back and now in spite of Angar was in opposition party for a long period as his party was in power only in 2008.
