Bengaluru: Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee DK Shivakumar on Thursday, December 31 said gram panchayat polls results are satisfactory.
Addressing presspersons Shivakumar, “How can someone claim that the particular party candidate won the elections? Many Congress party workers have won the poll and I will soon submit the to Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa soon.”
Initial trends indicate that the candidates backed by the BJP have won a majority of panchayat seats in Karnataka as the counting of votes progressed on Wednesday.
Though these polls don’t take place on party symbols, all political parties have put in efforts to ensure that the candidate supported by them wins, so as to have their hold on grassroots level politics, which may prove advantageous for them in taluk or Zilla panchayat and even assembly polls whenever it happens.
The elections to 5,728 village panchayats had taken place across 226 Taluks of the state for 82,616 seats. They were conducted in two phases on December 22 and 27 where 78.58 per cent voting was registered. As many as 2,22,814 candidates contested the election whereas 8,074 candidates were elected unopposed.
