Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President G. Parameshwara won from Koratagere Assembly constituency in Tumakuru district, the Election Commission said on Tuesday.
Parameshwara defeated P.R. Sudhakar Lal of Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) by a margin of 7,619 votes.
The KPCC chief had lost in the May 2013 Assembly election from the same segment, which is his home constituency, denying him an opportunity to stake claim for the Chief Minister's post then.
