Will sacrifice Karnataka CM post for a Dalit, says Siddaramaiah

Karnataka Elections 2018 LIVE: 10.6% voting till 9:15 am, say poll panel

In the 2004 elections, the Congress performed poorly, winning just 65 seats, while the JD (S) won 58.

The sentiment is strong that the tea leaves of the Karnataka assembly election result will tell the contours of the much bigger 2019 Lok Sabha battle.

He pointed out that this was his last election and that he will act as a mentor for his party. Nanjamari, the Congress says, is a BJP member though she denies it. Deputy Election Commissioner Chandra Bhushan Kumar has sent his report to the Election Commission after investigating this incident. He was addressing media persons in Kalburgi today in the state after celebrating his 50th marriage anniversary.

As we told you above that B. S. Yeddyurappa is the chief ministerial candidate for BJP and Congress is contesting the present CM Siddaramaiah.

Muthalik is not directly linked to the BJP which is challenging the ruling Congress party in the assembly elections. The party will be walking a tight rope in case of a hung verdict as Siddaramaiah's own sour relations with the JD (S) patriarch H.D. Deve Gowda might play the spoiler for a possible Congress-JD (S) alliance.

The statement comes after exit polls following Assembly elections on Saturday predicted a hung Assembly with the possibility of the Janata Dal-Secular emerging as the kingmaker.

India dust storms: At least 39 dead in four states
Delhiites woke up to a sunny morning with the mercury touching 40 degrees during the day but the sky turned cloudy around 4:30 pm. Traffic came to a crawl at several areas in Delhi as the strong wind picked up dust and swirled them around, reducing visibility.

The Hindu nationalist BJP and its allies hold power in 22 of India's 29 states, but after Karnataka, three more state elections are due to take place by the end of the year.

The ABP-C Voter, NewsX-CNX, Republic-Jan ki Baat and News Nation exit polls predicted the BJP would be the largest party in the assembly.

Both Modi and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty that has dominated Indian politics since independence, have campaigned hard in Karnataka, a state of 66 million people with diverse constituencies.

Party sources said that the JD (S) leader, who is expected to make the key decision in the event of a fractured mandate as indicated by various Exit polls, had left for Singapore for taking some well earned rest as he had tirelessly campaigned for the party for more than a month.

Shashi Tharoo, the Congress MP from Kerala said he was optimistic of party retaining power in Karnataka. "I am 100% confident because I am the chief minister". Prior to the 2008 elections, Bachegowda was a JD (S) candidate and the polls were fought between Congress and JD (S), with Bachegowda joining the BJP in 2008, the BJP made inroads into one constituency in Bengaluru Rural.
