Karnataka election results 2018

In this situation, the BJP has two options. The report has also suggested that JD (S)'s HD Kumaraswamy has flown to Singapore and has been negotiating from there. But now the question is even if Congress becomes single largest party but if it does not surpass the magic number will it be able to form the government.

Analysts said the BJP was leading in Lingayat dominated seats and the JD-S in Vokkaliga dominated areas. Congress also contested from 222 constituencies.

JD (S) got about 17.7% of the votes, and did much better than expected, hurting the Congress Party's chances in the process.

Asserting that a nation can not be "built on divides", Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Sunday said India was not safe in the hands of the BJP government.

The Congress had won 122 seats and the BJP 40 seats in the last Karnataka Assembly election in 2013.

Overall, the BJP is on track to win around 110 seats, leaving around 70 seats for the Congress Party.

For the JD (S), which forged a pre-poll alliance with Mayawati's BSP, the real game may begin only once the results are out. Kumar said re-election would take place in a polling station at Lottegollahalli in Hebbal constituency here since an electronic voting machine developed a glitch.

India TV-VMR exit poll has predicted hung assembly in Karnataka. It said that the JD (S) will win 30-39 seats and others 2-4 seats.

Gowda is wary of his core voters shifting to the Congress Party if Siddharamaiah remains in power for too long.

CM Siddaramaiah had on Sunday said he is open to making way for a Dalit chief minister if the Congress high command decides so, hinting that the Congress was seeking an alliance with the HD Deve Gowda-led party. Given that the Congress is keen to ensure that at least one big state remains part of its United Progressive Alliance, it is seen as agreeing to the demand as well.

If an election results in a hung assembly, then fresh elections are announced and conducted as soon as possible.

However, BJP's victory in Karnataka in 2008 was a crucial moment in the party's history, marking the first time it was able to expand into South India.

Karnataka has voted and now we await the results.
