Hubballi: The Hubballi Central constituency has emerged as the frontrunner in the ongoing Karnataka Assembly elections, with a record 10.07% voter turnout by 9 am. The constituency has been in the limelight due to the high-voltage contest between former Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar and Mahesh Tenginkai, Shettar recently switched sides to Congress after being denied a ticket from BJP.
The neighboring constituencies of Hubballi Dharwad (East) and Hubballi Dharwad (West) reported a voter turnout of 10% and 9.08% respectively, by the same time. However, Navalgund, with only 3.39% polling, recorded the lowest turnout among the seven constituencies in the district, while Kundagol reported a modest 6.07%.
Meanwhile, the Dharwad constituency, where Vinay Kulkarni and BJP’s Amrut Desai are contesting, witnessed a 9.23% voter turnout. Kalaghatagi, another high-voltage constituency, saw friends-turned-rivals Nagaraj Chabbi and Santosh Lad facing off against each other, with a 10% voter turnout.
The assembly elections in Karnataka have captured the attention of the nation, and the residents of the state are turning out in large numbers to make their voices heard. The high turnout in the Hubballi Central constituency is a testament to the enthusiasm of the voters and the importance they place on this election.
