While the Opposition BJP is eyeing to dethrone the ruling Congress government in the state, the Siddaramaiah-led grand old party is confident about regaining power for a second consecutive term. The 2018 Karnataka elections exit polls conducted by different channels showed that the state is readying for a hung assembly. While some polls showed Congress as the single largest party, others claimed that the BJP will win the largest number of seats. JD-S will remain at the third spot, according to most exit polls.

Karnataka is one of the eight states where polls were scheduled this year. Now it is to see if the Congress can restore power or the Narendra Modi-powered BJP will foil its plan and make a comeback with BS Yeddyurappa at the helm in Karnataka.
