Karnataka elections verdict 2018 Tampered EVM’s getting blamed for the results

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray also challenged the BJP to hold elections through ballot papers to clear doubts over the use of EVMs.

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray agreed with his cousin.

Karnataka's voters rejected the Indian National Congress "lock, stock and barrel", the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) state unit said Tuesday, as counting trends pointed to a historic triumph for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party in the southern state. "Sometime u win sometimes you lose", he added. Also, it would mean that the BJP has gained a foothold in the south. Congress leaders said that UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, who personally does not enjoy a good equation with former PM HD Deve Gowda, was urged by her advisers to reach out to him to work out a solution before the BJP staked claim to form the government.

"If statesmanship is shown, this can happen as we together have a majority in the Karnataka Assembly", the Congress leader told the media.

Airing a similar view, Maharashtra NCP president Jayant Patil said the Congress was well positioned in Karnataka and there was no anti-incumbency against the Siddaramaiah government. "However, the situation in Karnataka is different as it is a bigger state", Raut said.

As per the official data by Election Commission, BJP has bagged 45 seats and is leading in 61, while Congress trails second with victory on 22 seats and a lead on 53 seats.

Wondering why the secular votes got divided, Patil said if the BJP got more votes where its strength was limited, then doubts over the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) were true.

In the political resolution adopted at its 84th plenary session in Delhi in March, the Congress urged the election commission to revert to ballot papers from EVMs, which have come under scrutiny following tampering allegations. There will be a delay but doubts will be cleared.
