Moily loses to Sadananda Gowda

By Our Staff Correspondent

MANGALORE, MAY 13. D.V. Sadananda Gowda of the Bharatiya Janata Party won the Mangalore Lok Sabha seat today defeating his nearest Congress rival, M. Veerappa Moily, former Chief Minister, by a margin of 32,314 votes. Mr. Gowda, who was MLA for Puttur, was the deputy leader of the party in the dissolved House.

Mr. Gowda polled 3,84,760 votes and Mr. Moily 3,51,345. Mr. Gowda established the lead right from the first round and maintained it till the end.

The announcement of the result was delayed by two years as an electronic voting machine that developed a snag had to be shut off.

The permission of the Election Commission had to be sought to decode it.

By that time the announcement of the result had only become a formality as Mr. Gowda had already established a huge lead.

A total of 2,953 votes were received by post of which 956 were declared invalid.

The votes received by other candidates are: A.K. Subbaiah (Janata Dal-S) 39,774 and Rohit Kumar Joshi (Kannada Nadu) 15,693.
