Bengaluru: JD(S) candidate and party's national spokesperson Tanveer Ahmed Ullah visited 62 polling booths on Thursday morning (December 5) to check the voting trends in the by-election to Shivajinagar Assembly seat in Bengaluru.

Speaking to Asianet Newsable, he said the trend in Shivajinagar is changing as ‘silent majority’ of the people are coming to JD(S). He refrained from talking about the BJP candidate M Saravana saying the public are aware of his background. He lashed out at the Congress saying, “all the goondas are with them”.

Karnataka Assembly by-polls are underway today (December 5) in 15 constituencies.
