KARIMNAGAR, JUNE 04, 2024: BJP contestant from Karimnagar parliament constituency and sitting MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar is all set to recreate history from the Karimnagar parliament constituency by winning with a thumping majority in the elections.

After 16th round of counting of votes on Tuesday, Bandi Sanjay secured a lead of 1, 60, 651 votes against his nearest rival and Congress candidate Velichala Rajender Rao. The BJP candidate had surpassed his 2019 elections lead when he secured 89,508 votes in 2019 elections.

The present trend of counting indicates that Mr Sanjay Kumar would cross BRS president K Chandrashekhar Rao’s record lead of 2,01,582 votes from the Karimnagar parliament in 2006 by-elections during the statehood movement. The BJP is confidence of crossing over two lakh majority in the elections and set a new record in the parliament constituency.

The BJP candidate sprang a surprise by going ahead in all rounds of counting of votes by defeating the political heavyweights including Congress leader Rajender Rao and BRS former MP B Vinod Kumar, who is confined to third position.

A three-time municipal corporator from Karimnagar, Mr. Sanjay Kumar (53) had contested from the Karimnagar Assembly segment in 2014, 2018 and 2023 elections, but lost to BRS candidate Gangula Kamalakar. Mr Sanjay Kumar had solely banked on his sympathy of losing Assembly elections besides playing the Hindutva card with the support of party’s frontal organisations.

As soon as counting started on Tuesday morning, Mr. Sanjay Kumar continued his winning spree by securing leads from the postal ballots onwards. Though, the BJP does not have any representation from all the seven assembly segments, he is leading ahead to win the elections.
