bjp victory 10112020Bengaluru: After the Bharatiya Janata Party’s victory in the Raja Rajeshwari Nagar and Sira Assembly bypolls, party national general secretary C T Ravi dedicated their success at the polls to Vishwa Hindu Parishad organising secretary for Kodagu, D S Kuttappa. He also dedicated the victory to other “Hindu karyakartas” who were “murdered during CONgress rule”.

It can be recalled that Kuttappa was killed during the violence that broke out during the first official celebration of the Tipu Jayanti in 2015 in Kodagu.

“Five years ago on this day, VHP leader Sri Kuttappa was killed by Islamic Fundamentalists during @INCKarnataka sponsored Tipu Jayanti celebrations. We dedicate Sira & Rajarajeshwarinagara victories to Sri Kuttappa & Other Hindu Karyakartas who were murdered during CONgress rule,” Ravi wrote in a tweet.

BJP candidate Munirathna Naidu won the bye-elections in the Raja Rajeshwari Nagar constituency with a huge margin of 57,936 votes against his opponent, Congress candidate Kusuma H, wife of deceased IAS officer DK Ravi.

The BJP saw its first victory in the Sira constituency with party candidate Dr Rajesh Gowda coming out on top with 74,522 votes, while Congress candidate T B Jayachandra secured 61,573 votes and JD(S) candidate Anjamma B, wife of the late JD(S) MLA B Satyanarayana secured 35,982 votes.
