BENGALURU:

In a controversial result, Congress leader Raksha Ramaiah has won the presidential election to the Karnataka Pradesh Youth Congress Committee (KPYCC) despite ending up second in the race behind Mohammed Haris Nalapad, who was disqualified at the last minute.

Ramaiah, 34, is the son of former minister MR Seetharam. He secured 57,271 votes. Nalapad bagged 64,203 votes, but was disqualified owing to the infamous 2018 assault case, party sources said.

Another presidential candidate Mithun Rai, who got 3,104 votes, was disqualified as he was over aged. The app-based Youth Congress presidential election was held on January 10, 11 and 12.

According to party sources, Ramaiah had Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Siddaramaiah’s backing, whereas Nalapad had Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president DK Shivakumar on his side.

Student leader HS Manjunatha, with 18,137 votes, will be the KPYCC vice-president. UNI
