    Kochi corporation result 2020: UDF candidate Venugopal loses to BJP by 1 vote

    This comes as a major upset for Congress as it was looking to nominate a strong leader from its 'I' group as the candidate for the post of mayor.

    The UDF has been ruling the Kochi corporation for the past ten years.

    It was a sure seat. I can't say what happened. There was no problem with the party. There was a problem with the voting machine. That may be the reason for BJP's victory. I have not decided to go to court with voting machine issue so far. Will check what happened exactly, Venugopal said.
