The Congress is led by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and the opposition BJP is spearheaded by BS Yeddyurappa.

Aaj Tak is bringing you live coverage of counting day in the Karnataka assembly election, whose result has the potential to drastically influence political fortunes in the run-up to next year's general election. Notwithstanding media speculations however, the results should be out by 11 am Tuesday (today) and it should be pretty clear who will be in the driving seat in Karnataka. Again Congress was single largest party with 17 seats and BJP got only 13 seats. remaining 10 seats shared by other parties.

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.

According to the latest numbers, the Indian National Congress got 98.3 lakh votes (38.0%), while the BJP got only 95.1 lakh votes (36.7%). Due to this, the importance of JD (S) has spiked since whoever it chooses to make an alliance with, makes the next government in Karnataka. 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.

Against just 30-35 seats that JD (S) was expected to win, it is likely to win close to 40 seats, going by the initial trends in leads.

Analysts said the BJP was leading in Lingayat dominated seats and the JD-S in Vokkaliga dominated areas. There are 19 seats in coastal Karnataka and the BJP had performed badly in this region in 2013.
