Karnataka Elections 2018: Congress Denies Chances of Going in Alliance with JD(S)

Karnatka polls AIR

The results will be announced on Tuesday.

Sinha said the highest polling of 76 per cent was recorded in Chikkaballapura and Ramanagara while Bengaluru Urban had the lowest turnout at 48 per cent. But after the pre-poll surveys failed to identify a clear wave in the state, exit polls are likewise indicating a hung assembly. The gains for BJP seems to be huge given the fact that in 2013 the Congress figure was 122 followed by BJP at 40 and JD (S) 40 and KJP and others 22. If they do combine to form the government, it could be at the cost of some top leaders; so, as of now, this looks quite improbable. In 2005, former Prime Minister Gowda had expelled Siddaramaiah from JD (S) and it was then that Siddaramaiah joined Congress.

However, according to BJP leaders the whirlwind campaign by PM Mr Modi and party chief Mr Shah as also a large number of them by Mr Yeddyurappa is expected to fetch dividends.

Detroit wins in walk-off style, sending Mariners to rare series loss
In the fifth season of a $240 million, 10-year contract, Cano has played in at least 150 games in each of the last 11 seasons. Robinson Cano was forced to leave the Mariners game Sunday against the Tigers with a fractured bone in his right hand.

Among the three key regions in the State, Old Mysore has a total of 57 seats and the polling was 72.38 per cent compared to 74.76 per cent in 2013. He maintained that the Congress would secure absolute majority. But analysts say that the party might be in for a rude shock as its aggressive Hindutva stance may backfire.

The predictions were made for 222 of the 224 seats in the assembly. However, it remains to be seen how BJP will fare on May 15. On the other hand, Times Now-VMR said the Congress will win 90-103 seats in karnataka elections 2018.

Some exit polls gave almost 40 of the Scheduled Castes vote to the BJP - higher than the Congress share of 37 per cent. "Without Lingayat master stroke from Siddaramaiah, the Congress tally would have been near 65 to 70", Prof Kakade told UNI over phone.

Lethal Weapon: Clayne Crawford Wishes Cast 'Good Luck' After Being Fired
" 'Lethal Weapon' is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen". Former Lethal Weapon star Clayne Crawford has broken his silence after being fired from the Fox and Warner Bros .

"Exit opinion polls are entertainment for the next 2 days".

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said that he was "very confident" of the ruling Congress retaining power in the southern State by winning over 120 seats. Eight major polls Saturday predicted a median 26 seats for the party - with the higher end of the predicted range in some polls reaching 35-40 - a critical mass in a situation in which almost every poll sees both the Congress and the BJP falling short of the halfway mark of 112. Siddaramaiah went on to realise his ambition of becoming CM by joining the Congress later - and the dynamics of the Deve Gowda-Siddaramaiah relationship will come in to play again should the results on May 15 force the Congress and JD (S) to work together again.
