Karnataka Polls: BJP wins

BJP has won the Karnataka polls.

Here is what the tally looks like

Cong: 80

BJP:110

JD:28

others:6

224/224

Counting of votes in the 224 assembly constituencies that went to polls in three phases in Karnataka began on Sunday under tight security cover.

The trends were expected to trickle in from 10.30 am and the first result by 11 am, according to electoral authorities.

The election has evoked intense curiosity among the people of the state who have been waiting to see whether they would have a single party rule or the elections return yet another fractured verdict as in 2004.

BJP had struck an optimistic note, saying it was projected to win 117 to 125 seats, while Congress, in a cautious approach settled down for a “simple” majority.

JDS, is eyeing for a mark, obviously the hung House, to enable the party to play a role in government formation.

Karnataka is the first state in the country to face election as per redrawn constituencies.
