Karnataka election results: The much-awaited Karnataka election results seem to be setting in the right waves among the BJP supporters as the party looks poised to form the government if it manages to convert its leads to wins.
While the counting of votes is still underway in Karnataka, the current results suggest that BJP leads in over 105 seats while Congress and JD(S) lead in 73 and 38 seats respectively.
Karnataka’s incumbent Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of Congress, who is hanging by a thread in Badami, has lost to GT Devegowda of JD(S) in Chamundeshwari by a huge margin.
“People have rejected Siddaramaiah. He lost because of his attitude, because of attacking everyone & because of his loose talk,” GT Devegowda, JD(S) candidate, was quoted as saying by ANI.
