LS Polls 2024 Results: Shashi Tharoor Celebrates Big Win In Thiruvananthapuram, Distribute Sweets

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor appears to be headed for a fourth consecutive term from Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha constituency. With only around 50,000 votes left to be counted, Tharoor has amassed a sizable lead of 11,281 votes over BJP leader Rajeev Chandrasekhar. After trailing by over 20,000 votes behind Chandrasekhar, Tharoor has regained the lead with a margin of over 11,000 votes. During the initial hours of counting, the fight between Chandrasekhar and Tharoor was neck-and-neck with each taking a lead of a few thousand votes. By noon, the BJP leader gained a healthy lead of around 24,000 votes over Tharoor, who is hoping to win a fourth time from Thiruvananthapuram LS seat. However, more than an hour later, Tharoor took back the lead from Chandrasekhar. #loksabharesult #ShashiTharoor #INDIA #Congress #BJP #RahulGandhi #loksabharesult2024 #loksabharesultlive #electionresults2024 #electionresultslive #liveelectionresult #electionresults2024live #electionresultsanalysis #liveelectionresult2024 #electionresultsnow #electionresult #electionresulttoday #2024elections #2024loksabhaelection2024 #2024electionresult #chunavresult #loksabhaelection2024 #loksabha2024 #bjp #congress #pmmodi #narendramodi #rahulgandhi #electionbreaking #electionnews #election2024 ~HT.99~PR.152~ED.194~

On exit polls, Congress MP & candidate from Kerala's Thiruvananthapuram, Shashi Tharoor says, "...Expectations were set on 26th April because once people have cast their votes and the boxes are sealed in the strong room then there is no further room for any argument or debate...There was no cross-voting in the previous elections. We have neither benefited from cross-voting in the past nor do we expect to see any cross-voting this time...We will win on our merit or we will fail but my view is that we are winning..." #loksabharesult #ShashiTharoor #INDIA #Congress #BJP #RahulGandhi #loksabharesult2024 #loksabharesultlive #electionresults2024 #electionresultslive #liveelectionresult #electionresults2024live #electionresultsanalysis #liveelectionresult2024 #electionresultsnow #electionresult #electionresulttoday #2024elections #2024loksabhaelection2024 #2024electionresult #chunavresult #loksabhaelection2024 #loksabha2024 #bjp #congress #pmmodi #narendramodi #rahulgandhi #electionbreaking #electionnews #election2024 ~HT.318~PR.152~ED.102~GR.123~
