Infographics: Congress-JD(s) Steals the Show in Karnataka Bypolls

In a spectacular show of strength, the ruling Congress-JD(S) alliance in Karnataka managed to keep the Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) at bay at the bypolls in four out of five constituencies – Shivamoga, Mandya, Ramanagara and the BJP bastion Ballari. The BJP managed to bag Shivamoga by a margin of 52,148 votes.

While analysts have already started calling it the “mood of the nation” for 2019, the Congress claiming victory in Ballari is being considered a major takeaway from the showdown.

Here’s a breakdown of the victory margin and the number of votes:
