Mangaluru: BJP has bounced back by emerging victorious in seven out of the eight Assembly constituencies in DK district leaving Congress with a single win, i.e in Mangaluru (Ullal) constituency.

The results came as a shock to Congress candidates and party leaders as they were all betting on the numerous developmental initiatives of the Siddaramaiah Government.

BA Moidin Bava, the Congress candidate of Mangaluru North said “Hindutva wave has led to my defeat.”

UT Khader who is the only Congress candidate to win from DK said “The developmental works had reached the grassroots level. But anti-propaganda has won.”

Congress’ Bantwal B Ramanatha Rai lost and said that he would abide by the verdict of the people. Rai’s opponent Rajesh Naik Ulipady, who emerged victorious in Bantwal said “Ramanatha Rai’s appeasement policy has led to my win. He has failed to undertake any developmental work. This is a victory of my party workers.”

BJP’s Harish Poonja has won from Belthangady, Sanjeeva Matandoor from Puttur, S Angara from Sullia,

Vedavyas Kamath from Mangaluru South, Dr Bharath Shetty from Mangaluru North and Umanath Kotian from Moodbidri.

Joyous BJP workers celebrated the victory of their candidates without caring for the prohibitory orders under Section 144 which is in place till midnight on May 16.
