Bengaluru: A close contest is being witnessed between Congress’ Satish Jarkiholi and BJP’s Mangala Suresh Angadi in  Belgaum Assembly constituency in Karnataka.

The voting took place for Belgaum Lok Sabha and Maski and Basavakalyan assembly constituencies on April 17.

There were 30 candidates in the fray — 10 in Belgaum, 12 in Basavakalyan and eight in Maski.

The bypolls to Belgaum and Basavakalyan took place following the demise of the sitting public representatives Suresh Angadi (BJP) and B Narayan Rao (Congress) due to COVID, while Maski seat fell vacant due to the disqualification of Congress MLA Prathapagouda Patil.

Patil was among Congress MLAs who had resigned from the Assembly in 2019, was disqualified and later joined the BJP later to contest the bypoll on the party ticket.

The contest in Belgaum and Maski is mainly between Congress and the BJP.

In Belgaum, the BJP had fielded Late Suresh Angadi’s wife Mangala Suresh Angadi against Congress Karnataka working president and Yamkanmardi MLASatish Jarkiholi.

In Maski, BJP’s Pratapagouda Patil was in a direct fight against Basanagouda Turvihal of Congress.

JD(S) contested only in Basavakalyan, fielding Syed Yasrab Ali Quadri, while the Congress nominee was Rao’s wife Mallamma and Sharanu Salagar was chosen by the BJP.
