Goa/ New Delhi/ AP: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Monday won the Panaji Assembly by-election, defeating his nearest rival, Girish Chodankar of the Congress, by 4,803 votes.
On the other hand, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate Ram Chander won the Bawana bypoll in Delhi. He defeated BJP’s Ved Prakash by 24,052 votes while Congress’ Sandeep Kumar secured third position.
This win was of great significance for AAP national convenor and Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal as Ved Parkash, who was the AAP candidate in 2015 Delhi Assembly polls, had joined the BJP just before the municipal polls.
In Andhra Predesh’s Nandyal Assembly seat, TDP candidate B Brahmananda Reddy defeated YSRCP rival S Mohan Reddy by more than 27000 votes.
By-polls for the three seats were held on 23rd August. Panaji and Nandyal had recorded more than 70 percent voter turnout while in Bawana, voter turnout was 45 per cent.
