About Gulbarga:

The city of Gulbarga is the administrative headquarters of this district. The historic legacy of the Gulbarga district, which was in the hands of various kingdoms from the ancient period, dates back to the 6th century, when the control of this region was in the hands of the Rashtrakuta king. In the 14th century, this region of Gulbarga was made the capital of the Bahamani Sultans, after a revolt took place against the Delhi Sultanate. Economically backward as this district is, it is being funded under the Government of India’s special schemes such as the Backward Regions Grant Fund Programme.

Present Political Scenario:

Only a matter what would be the victory margin for Congress

BJP has re-nominated ex animal husbandry minister, Revu Naik Belamagi for this SC reserved constituency. Not only had he lost this seat in the 2009 LS elections when Karnataka (unlike India) was in a strong BJP wave, but also he had lost the assembly elections in May last year.

 Congress has the towering Dalit leader and union Railway minister, Mallikarjun Kharge, re-contesting the seat and the only question now is what would be Congress’s victory margin – by all counts it  could be closer to a lakh.
