Hyderabad, May 2: The ruling TRS party candidate Nomula Bhagat on Sunday won the Nagarajuna Sagar bypoll held on April 17 with a total of 2,31,943 votes and won by a margin of 15,487 votes over Congress candidate K Jana Reddy. BJP's Ravi Nayak got 7,150 votes.
Bhagat is leading by 2,118 votes over his nearest Congress rival K Jana Reddy after the second round of vote- counting, according to the Election Commission.
The bypoll was necessitated due to the death of sitting TRS legislator Nomula Narsimhaiah in December last. The BJP has put up P Ravi Kumar as its candidate.
The Congress candidate Jana Reddy had served as Leader of Opposition in the previous Legislative Assembly. He lost from the same constituency in the 2018 Assembly polls.
