Lok Sabha poll results: Congress-led UDF leads in majority of seats in Kerala as counting progresses

The Congress-led UDF continued to maintain its lead in the majority of seats in Kerala as the counting of EVM ballots entered its final phase. UDF candidates, including Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in the Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency, displayed strong performances, with many sitting MPs leading comfortably against their rivals from the CPI(M)-led LDF and the BJP-led NDA.

In a significant development for the BJP in Kerala, actor-politician Suresh Gopi secured a comfortable margin of 75,079 votes in the central Kerala constituency, ending the electoral drought for the party in the state. However, the ruling CPI(M)-led alliance faced setbacks even in its strongholds like Kasaragod, Kannur, Vadakara, and Palakkad, reminiscent of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls where the Left could only secure one seat.

Despite this, CPI(M)'s K Radhakrishnan maintained a lead against his nearest rival, Ramya Haridas of the Congress, in the Alathur seat. Similarly, the party's candidate in the Attingal seat, V Joy, saw a slight increase in his margin to over 4000 votes against his nearest rival, Congress' Adoor Prakash.

UDF candidates Dean Kuriakose (Congress) and N K Premachandran (RSP) from Idukki and Kollam Lok Sabha seats, respectively, were leading by significant margins over their closest rivals, according to trends.

Lok Sabha election results 2024: 'Today's electoral setback is certainly very disappointing', says BRS working president KT Rama Rao

The Working President of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), K T Rama Rao, reflected on the party's journey over the past 24 years since its founding, acknowledging both its achievements and setbacks. He highlighted the formation of Telangana state as the party's greatest accomplishment, along with its consecutive victories in the state assembly elections.

Rama Rao emphasized the significance of the party's role as a regional force, securing substantial victories in the state elections. Despite facing electoral setbacks in the recent polls, he expressed determination to overcome challenges and emerge stronger, likening the party's resilience to that of a Phoenix rising from the ashes.

The victory in the Mahabubnagar MLC by-elections was cited as a pivotal moment, signaling a shift in the political landscape of Telangana. Rama Rao interpreted this success as indicative of changing political dynamics within the state, particularly within the Chief Minister's home districts.

Telangana witnessed a notable voter turnout of 65.67% in the recent Lok Sabha polls, conducted in the fourth phase. In the 2019 elections, the BRS (formerly TRS) secured nine out of 17 seats, with the BJP and Congress winning four and three seats, respectively.

Lok Sabha election results 2024 | Maharashtra Congress on LS results: Rahul Gandhi's two Yatras 'heralded change in India'

Maharashtra Congress President Nana Patole credited the party's impressive performance in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections to the efforts of senior leader Rahul Gandhi and the impactful Bharat Jodo Yatra and Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatras.

He emphasized that the momentum for change began with Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra (BJY) and Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatras (BJNY), which traversed across the length and breadth of India, garnering significant support from the masses.

Patole highlighted that the electorate has decisively rejected the Bharatiya Janata Party's divisive and destructive politics through the peaceful exercise of their voting power. He asserted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's arrogance has been shattered, marking a victory for the common people and political workers who diligently worked towards this outcome.

The Maharashtra Congress President emphasized that the widespread belief that there was no alternative to Modi has been effectively disproven by the Lok Sabha election results. He stressed that the democratic expression of the people's will has demonstrated that no individual is above the citizens in a democracy.

Furthermore, Patole reiterated the significance of this outcome as a lesson for those responsible for forming the "unconstitutional government" in Maharashtra, which goes against the principles advocated by leaders such as Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj, and Dr. B. R. Ambedkar.

His remarks come in the wake of the Maha Vikas Aghadi's remarkable performance, securing leads or victories in 29 out of 48 Lok Sabha seats, compared to 18 leads or wins for the ruling Mahayuti, along with one Independent candidate emerging victorious in Sangli.

Ajay Mishra Teni: The Union Minister of State for Home faces a tough challenge in Kheri, where Utkarsh Varma of the Samajwadi Party has surged ahead with a lead of over 33,000 votes.

Lok Sabha Election Results 2024: 'Baahubali' moment for Stalin as DMK-led combine poised for massive win

The Coimbatore rally in April, where Chief Minister M K Stalin and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi addressed the public, left a lasting impact, with Stalin likening the turnout to the blockbuster movie "Baahubali" and declaring that the "total BJP was trumped" by that single event.

The streak of electoral success for the DMK and its allies began in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls and continued through subsequent civic polls and the 2021 Assembly elections, culminating in a resounding victory for the Dravidian party and its partners.

Stalin's leadership was instrumental in shaping the election campaign, with a focus on themes of social justice and welfare schemes. He emphasized the importance of voting out the BJP to protect social justice and welfare initiatives, warning that a return of PM Modi's government would endanger these principles.

Slogans highlighting PM Modi's infrequent visits to the state, the burdensome GST regime, and allegations of an undisclosed alliance between AIADMK and BJP resonated with voters. Additionally, welfare schemes like financial assistance for women, free breakfast for school children, and fare-free bus travel for women bolstered support for the ruling party.

Stalin adeptly countered BJP's attacks, dismissing accusations of family rule and challenging Modi's record on issues like the Madurai AIIMS project and flood relief for Tamil Nadu. He also criticized BJP's handling of the Katchatheevu issue and accused Modi of failing to confront Sri Lanka and China.

The DMK's election song, "Stalin Kural, Namakkagave, Nammai Kaakkave," reflected a fighting spirit and rallied support against the BJP. Stalin framed the 2024 LS polls as a "second freedom movement" and portrayed the election as a choice between continuing BJP rule or ushering in change.

After a decade in opposition, Stalin's leadership guided the DMK to a significant victory in the 2021 Assembly elections, solidifying his position as a formidable political force in Tamil Nadu.

Lok Sabha Election Results 2024: 'Miracle was imminent', says Suresh Gopi after BJP's historic Lok Sabha victory in Kerala

Actor-turned-politician Suresh Gopi expressed his jubilation over the historic win poised in the parliamentary seat of Thrissur, emphasizing the significance of the BJP's breakthrough in Kerala, according to trends announced by the Election Commission on Tuesday in the counting of votes in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

"What was very impossible became gloriously possible," said the actor who contested from the seat for the second time after losing in the last general elections in 2019.

Gopi attributed his victory to the support of the "truly secular voters" of Thrissur, stating that despite attempts to divert their allegiance from the BJP, divine intervention guided them on the right path.

"Attempts were made to mislead the voters but God led them on the correct path to accept my party through me ...even if some of you feel that this is a miracle, this miracle was imminent...The victory is due to people's blessings. I bow down to the truly secular voters of Thrissur who made this victory possible," the actor said.

Expressing his admiration for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gopi declared his commitment to working for the betterment of Kerala as a whole.

"Narendra Modi is my political God. ..I am not believing in just a manifesto...I will work for the whole Kerala...I will work as Kerala MP," he said.

The 65-year-old actor exuded excitement over his victory, describing it as the culmination of years of emotional investment in his constituency. He also acknowledged the tireless efforts of BJP workers and volunteers in his election campaign.

"I am in totally an ecstatic mood. What was very impossible became gloriously was not a 62-day campaign process, it was an emotional carriage for the past 7 years...I work for Kerala as a whole. My first pick will be to have AIIMS," Gopi said.

Suresh Gopi was leading with 400,706 votes in the Thrissur constituency, maintaining a margin of 73,091 votes over his closest rival, V S Sunil Kumar of the CPI, and Congress' Muraleedharan of the Congress who polled 319,560 votes, as per data on the poll body's website at 2 pm.

The BJP's success in Kerala marks a significant milestone, particularly considering the party's previous struggles to make inroads in the state. With the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) led by the BJP crossing the majority mark in early leads and the INDIA bloc surging above 200, the Lok Sabha elections present a paradigm shift in the political landscape, defying all exit poll predictions.

Lok Sabha Election Results 2024: 'Victory of Rahul ji's ideologies', says Digvijay Singh as INDIA bloc leads in 200-plus seats in Lok Sabha polls

Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and Congress leader Digvijay Singh hailed the latest trends showing the INDIA bloc leading in 200-plus seats in the Lok Sabha polls, attributing it to the commitment of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to his ideologies.

"I would like to congratulate Mallikarjun Khargeji, under whose leadership we fought the elections. It is the victory of Rahulji's commitment to his ideologies. It is now apparent that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will not get a clear majority, and it would lead to inner conflicts among them," Singh said while speaking to reporters in Madhya Pradesh's Rajgarh.

"As far as Rajgarh is concerned, the counting is halfway done. Let's see now," he added.

In Rajgarh, Singh is contesting against BJP's Rodmal Nagar. The latest trends by the Election Commission of India (ECI) showed Nagar leading by 1,10,036 votes while Singh was trailing behind.

The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) led by the BJP is ahead in 293 seats, while the INDIA bloc is leading in 233 seats, indicating significant gains for the latter. The Congress, which won merely 52 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, is currently leading in 95 seats, while the BJP is ahead in 234 seats.

The BJP-led NDA appears far from its target of "400 Paar," with the BJP falling short of a simple majority in Lok Sabha, according to the latest trends. The BJP-led NDA, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, fought the Lok Sabha elections for a third straight term in office.

Lok Sabha polls 2024: Six independent candidates on way to victory

Only six independent candidates appear to be on track for victory in the Lok Sabha polls this time, despite nearly half of the over 8,000 candidates contesting without any party affiliation.

Among them, Abdul Rashid Sheikh, popularly known as Engineer Rashid, stands out as a giant slayer, leading against J&K National Conference leader Omar Abdullah with a margin of over 1,86,000 votes.

Sarabjeet Singh Khalsa, son of Beant Singh, one of the two assassins of former prime minister Indira Gandhi, contested as an independent candidate from Faridkot in Punjab. He leads against his nearest rival Karamjit Singh Anmol of the Aam Aadmi Party with a margin of over 66,000 votes. Singh had previously contested elections in 2014 and 2019 without success.

Meanwhile, radical Sikh preacher Amritpal Singh, chief of the 'Waris Punjab De' outfit, is leading in Punjab's Khadoor Sahib Lok Sabha seat over the Congress's Kulbir Singh Zira. Amritpal, currently lodged in Assam's Dibrugarh jail under the National Security Act, contested as an Independent.

In Maharashtra's Sangli, Vishal Prakashbapu Patil, a Congress rebel who contested as an Independent after Shiv Sena (UBT) fielded a candidate from the seat, leads with a margin of over 93,000 votes. He is the grandson of former Maharashtra chief minister Vasantdada Patil.

The other Independent candidates on track for victory are Mohammad Haneefa Jan from Ladakh, who resigned from the National Conference, and Patel Umeshbhai Babubhai from Daman & Diu.

Despite their prominence in this election, data show a decline in voter trust in independent candidates over the years. Since 1991, over 99 percent of them have lost their deposits.

In 2019, only four Independent candidates emerged victorious out of more than 8,000 contesting polls, with over 99.6 percent losing their deposits.

Historically, the number of winning Independent candidates has decreased from over six percent in 1951 to around 0.11 percent in 2019, reflecting a shifting electoral landscape.

Congress on course to boost Lok Sabha seats tally in Karnataka

The Congress party has made significant gains in Karnataka, as the latest counting trends indicate that the ruling party is set to increase its Lok Sabha seats tally to 10. This marks a shift in the political landscape, with the BJP losing ground in the state.According to Election Commission officials, the BJP is currently leading in 16 seats, a notable decrease from the 25 seats it secured in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The party's NDA partner, JD(S), is projected to emerge victorious in two constituencies.Despite the Congress's resounding success in the assembly elections held in May last year, where it faced off against the BJP and the JD(S) in a three-way contest, the ruling party appears to have fallen short of its expectations in the recent polls. The party had hoped to secure at least 15 seats but seems to have missed the mark.The Congress had heavily relied on the five guarantee schemes it had introduced in the state as part of its campaign strategy. In the 2019 general elections, the grand old party had managed to win only one out of the total 28 seats in Karnataka. Karnataka holds significant importance for the BJP in South India, as it is the only state in the region where the party has previously held power.
