Earlier in the day, the mood in the BJP camp was rapturous after Parrikar and Health Minister Vishwajit Rane won the bypolls in Panaji and Valpoi respectively, the latter with a sizeable margin of 10,066 votes. Voting was held peacefully in 379 polling stations across the Assembly constituency. Reddy had won the seat in 2014 as YSR Congress candidate, but jumped over to the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) in 2016.
