Manjunath Narayana Reddy of the Congress is Bengaluru's new Mayor. In a close contest today, he edged out the BJP's Manjunath Raju by three votes. Two weeks ago, the BJP had won 100 of the BBMP's 198 wards, a victory celebrated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a "hat-trick." It came soon after wins for the BJP in civic elections in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
