Addressing a thanksgiving press meet at Hotel The President on B.N. Road here this morning, Ramdas said that the KR Assembly segment, which he represents, gave the biggest margin of lead to Mysuru-Kodagu LS seat BJP candidate Pratap Simha.
Maintaining that all sections of the society, irrespective of caste, creed and religion, had voted for the BJP, Ramdas said that the BJP candidate got 1,46,691 votes from KR Assembly segment alone, which saw 177 NRIs and over 7,800 first time voters exercising their franchise.
