Shivakumar thanked BJP leader B Sriramulu for ensuring peaceful polls in the district. "I thank Sriramulu anna for making sure that there were no untoward incidents in during the elections," said Shivakumar.

He also said that Ugrapps’s victory brought with a big responsibility for the party. “Ugrappa will be Congress’ voice in the Parliament. The Congress has sought votes from the electorate for the next five years. We will now focus on the development of Bellary district. The party will ensure that we will not break the trust of the voters," he added.
