Bypolls which will seal Yeddy's fate close with poor turnout

Dec 06, 2019 06:17 IST

The crucial byelection to 15 Karnataka assembly constituencies that would have a bearing on the stability of the BS Yediyurappa-led BJP government saw an estimated 66.49% voter turn out on Thursday. The poor turnout is also below that recorded in the assembly elections in 2018. The byelections are being held to fill the vacancies caused by the disqualification of 17 rebel Congress and JD(S) MLAs, whose revolt led to the collapse of the HDKumaraswamy-led coalition government in July and paved the way for the BJP to come to power. The BJP needs to win at least six of the seats to remain in majority.
