Bengaluru, Jun 13: Counting of votes for Jayanagar election results is underway. Jayanagar Assembly seat went to polls on June 11 in which an estimated 55 per cent polling was recorded. The contest is between the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Jayanagar election. Catch live updates on Jayanagar election results.

The Assembly elections were held across Karnataka on May 12, but poll in Jayanagar seat was countermanded following the death of BJP candidate B N Vijayakumar, who was holding the seat. BJP’s B N Prahlad, brother of Vijaykumar, and senior Congress leader and former minister Ramalinga Reddy’s daughter Sowmya Reddy were locked in a direct contest for Jayanagar seat.

The JD(S) had on June 5 pulled out its candidate and extended the party’s support to its ruling coalition partner, the Congress. Both the Congress and JD(S) had fielded candidates against each other, despite being coalition partners, in the recent election to the Rajarajeshwari Nagar Assembly seat in the city. Congress candidate Munirathna had won the seat, relegating the JD(S) candidate to a distant third behind BJP.

The counting of votes for the 222 of the 224 assembly seats in the Karnataka state assembly took place on May 15. The BJP had emerged as the single largest party in the state assembly with 104 seats, while the Congress and JD(S) garnered 78 seats and 37 seats respectively. However, after days of high-political drama in the state, the Congress and the JD(S) came together and managed to form a coalition government in the state.
