IUML wins Kerala's Vengara bypoll

The counting for the by-election took place on Sunday

"BJP and LDF worked together in Vengara, and the votes that BJP lost benefited LDF, which has been their clear strategy to benefit each from the start.More like "Bandhukal shatrukal formula" - where they are related to each other but enemies and fighting each other as well".

In the Lok Sabha polls, Kunhalikutty had secured a margin of over 40,000 votes, while at the 2016 assembly polls he won with a margin of over 38,000 votes.

The United Democratic Front (UDF) candidate, K.N.A. Khader, has emerged victorious in Kerala's Vengara Assembly by-polls, by a margin of 23,312 votes, signifying a big boost for the Congress in the south. While UDF's PK Kunhalikkutty had managed to bag 72181 votes previous year, Khader was limited to 65,227 votes in the bypoll. Basheer, who contested from the constituency in 2016 as well, had then secured only 34,124 votes.

K Janachandran of the BJP could only manage 5728 votes while SDPI's KC Naseer got 8648.

The Election Commission has not officially announced the results as yet. The bypoll was necessitated after P K Kunhalikutty vacated the seat to successfully contest the Malappuram Lok Sabha segment.
