Yeshvanthapura Bypoll Results 2019 Live Updates: BJP Registers Victory from Yeshvanthapura
Check who won and who lost, who is leading, who is trailing and who will be the new Yeshvanthapura MLA (ಯಶವಂತಪುರ).

153. Yeshvanthapura (Gen) (ಯಶವಂತಪುರ) , also known as Yeshwanthpur, is a State Assembly/Vidhan Sabha constituency in the Bengaluru Urban district and Bengaluru region of Karnataka (ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ) and is a part of the Bangalore North Parliamentary/Lok Sabha constituency. Congress (INC) won the seat in the 2018 Karnataka Assembly elections.

INC won this seat in the 2013 Karnataka Assembly Elections with a margin of 29,100 votes (12.57%) securing 52% of the total votes polled.

BJP won this seat in the 2008 Assembly Elections with a margin of 1,082 votes (0.72%) registering 38.29% of the votes polled.

Bye-elections for 15 of the 17 vacant seats in the Karnataka Assembly were held on December 5, 2019 and the votes are being counted on December 8, 2019.
