Karnataka election results 2018: Even though most exit polls predicted a hung assembly, the BJP surged ahead towards the magic 113-mark in the Karnataka elections on Tuesday, leaving the ruling Congress stunned and JD(S) at a third spot. According to latest trends, BJP candidates were on the winning track in 105 constituencies while the Congress was in the lead in 70. karnataka election results live aaj tak, karnataka election results live tv9 kannada, live results of karnataka election

A win for Congress would be Rahul Gandhi’s first ever since he took charge of the party last year, while a victory for the BJP will give it the necessary momentum in state elections to be held later this year and, most importantly, the Lok Sabha elections in 2019.

A majority of exit polls have predicted that the BJP would get the largest number of seats in the new 224-seat assembly. Seven polls have predicted a hung assembly, touting Janata Dal (Secular) under former chief minister Deve Gowda as the kingmaker. The elections recorded an overall polling percentage of 72.13%, up from the 71.45% recorded in 2013.

Here is a 10-point guide for you to understand the Karnataka Assembly election results. We bring you fastest and real-time updates in Malayalam, Bengali and Tamil
1. After two hours of counting, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is leading in Badami after overcoming a scare while he was trailing in Chamundeshwari constituency by over 18,000 votes respectively. JD(S) of former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, however, was maintaining its hold in the old Mysuru region, the Vokkaliga belt, and its candidates were leading in 36 seats. BJP chief ministerial candidate Yeddyurappa is leading in Shikaripura by a whopping 9,000 votes. karnataka election results live aaj tak, karnataka election results live tv9 kannada, live results of karnataka election

2. With early trends showing Congress likely to fall short of a majority, Congress veteran’s Ashok Gehlot and Mallikarjun Kharge said they were open to an alliance with the JD(S). “We will discuss the issue with the high command. I am going to meet Ghulam Nabi Azad and Ashok Gehlot and we will discuss,” Kharge said. karnataka election results live aaj tak, karnataka election results live tv9 kannada, live results of karnataka election

3. Hundreds of BJP activists celebrated on Tuesday across Karnataka as the BJP appeared set to dethrone the Congress in the state. Waving BJP flags and dancing to drum beats, the activists, as well as some leaders, cheered loudly in the party office here at Malleswaram. Many shouted slogans hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party President Amit Shah.

4. BJP leader and Union Minister Sadanand Gowda said that there was no question of any alliance with the JD(S) as his party was headed towards a clear majority. Union minister Prakash Javadekar, who is in charge of Karnataka, met BJP President Amit Shah in New Delhi. Analysts said the BJP was leading in Lingayat dominated seats, in an assertion that Siddaramaiah’s recommendation to grant the community religious minority tag may not have benefitted the Congress.

5. The BJP, keen to retain power in a state it won once in 2008 and which it sees as a gateway to southern India, invested heavily in the campaign. The Congress, knowing well that it cannot afford to lose Karnataka, one of the only two big states where it is in office, carried out a highly spirited campaign. karnataka election results live aaj tak, karnataka election results live tv9 kannada, live results of karnataka election

6. Prime Minister Narendra Modi held 21 mega rallies for the BJP – six more than the 15 originally planned. After the PM’s arrival in the state as the star attraction on May 1, the party’s CM candidate BS Yeddyurappa played second fiddle.

7. Yeddyurappa remains confident that he will return as CM and has even announced a date for his swearing-in: May 17. He twice travelled the length and breadth of Karnataka in the months preceding the elections to drum up support for the BJP — including a 75-day Parivartan Yatra from November 2017 to January 2018.

8. The Congress campaign was spearheaded by Siddaramaiah, with party president, Rahul Gandhi, also carrying out a slick and hard-hitting campaign. UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, too, addressed a public rally in the state, her first after almost two years. karnataka election results live aaj tak, karnataka election results live tv9 kannada, live results of karnataka election

9. The trend of no government winning a second term in Karnataka since 1985 seems to be intact. In 1985, the Janata Dal under Ramakrishna Hegde had retained power.

10. In 2013, the Congress had won 122 seats. The BJP and the JD(S) got 40 seats each, while Yeddyurappa’s then Karnataka Jantha Paksha got six seats and B Sriramulu’s Badavara Shramikara Raitara Congress Party bagged four.
