Finally, the people of Bellary has given a befitting lesson to Gali brothers and Sriramulu by showing their complete majority to Congress-JDS candidate in the by-polls.BJP has never lost the Bellary seat since the past 14 years and ahead of the general elections in the country and also amidst growing incumbency this was a very big blow to both BJP and Gali brothers.
The Congress-JDS candidate Ugrappa has been victorious with a bumper majority of more than 2 lakh votes. The majority itself shows the clear rejection of people and their verdict has given a shock to BJP high command.
With Congress becoming strong day by day by forming allies with others, this by-poll is considered as the most prominent one before the general elections. Even Yeddyurappa and Gali brothers have campaigned vigorously but the end result has given a shock of their life.
