Exit polls give BJP clear edge over Congress in Karnataka

Exit polls give BJP clear edge over Congress in Karnataka

The Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) chief-ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa, too, dismissed the exit polls and insisted that his party would get 125 to 130 seats - more than the magic number of 113 seats in the 224-member assembly to rule the state.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Sunday dropped a huge hint on Congress' possible alliance with Janata Dal (Secular) if there's a split verdict in the recently held Karnataka Assembly elections. He said that as minister, Anand Sharma had snatched the special industrial package given to Himachal Pradesh by Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led government.

While speaking to a private news channel, JDS spokesman Danish Ali squashed speculation of supporting the BJP and said that it was the Congress' "responsibility" to reach out.

Added Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson: "Not many people would say we would get to the Champions League final". However, a 2-1 home defeat to Stoke sealed their fate to cap a 10-game winless streak to end a sorry season.


JD (S) chief HD Deve Gowda is not fond of Siddaramaiah. Here are results of some of the exit polls as there were many also by regional TV networks and newspapers that only created more confusion.

Reacting to the talk about Dalit Chief Minister for Karnataka, he told media persons in Mysuru that if High command and legislative party desires, he is ready to accept the suggestion without any hesitation.

Earlier in the day, while BJP's CM candidate Yeddyurappa claimed that his party will bag over 125 seats, incumbent CM Siddaramaiah termed the exit polls a mere "weekend entertainment". While pollsters continue to point towards a hung Assembly in the state with the BJP emerging as the single largest party, followed by the Congress, Siddaramaiah remains unperturbed. Also, some said that the exit polls aren't true and the truth will come out on Tuesday when the election commission will count the voting and tell the result to the whole nation. "And finally, to all the workers of the Congress party - I am indebted to you for all your efforts", chief minister Siddaramaiah said in a tweet. He said Gandhi will naturally have to work on those areas, both to protect the MLAs they already have and to win fresh territory for the Congress.
