Karnataka Assembly results: Vote share of parties

Karnataka Assembly results: Vote share of parties Bangalore: By garnering an estimated ten percent votes, former Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa's Karnataka Janatha Paksha spelt doom for the ruling BJP and catapulted the Congress to power in Karnataka.

A preliminary analysis suggested that the Congress gained some two percentage points compared to the 2008 figure of 34.59 - taking its tally from 80 then to 121 now.

In some sense, it has come a full circle as it were. In the previous elections, the BJP's vote percentage was nearly one per cent less than the Congress but still managed to get 110 seats.

Karnataka Assembly results: Vote share of parties BJP's vote-share is estimated to have slumped to around 20 percent this time, almost same as the JDS, which had 19.3 percent votes last time around, with both getting 40 seats each in the May five polls.

From 110 seats in 2008 elections to just 40 now, and reasons for the free fall are not difficult to explain.

Battered in Bellary and coastal districts, particularly Dakshina Kannada, besides yielding considerable ground in other parts of the State cost the BJP dearly.

In about 100 constituencies, Yeddyurappa's KJP and BSR Congress of B Sriramulu had chipped away its votes in no small measure.

Karnataka Assembly results: Vote share of parties KJP and BSR Congress have won a mere ten seats between them but the damage they caused to BJP's prospects in those segments saw to it that the Congress benefited immensely by default in multi-cornered contests.

In place of communal hatred may there now be goodwill and unity. `Unity in diversity` and `All Indians are my brothers and sisters` values which made India what it is now prevail to fulfil our Indian constitution and the wellbeing of our country.

Modi visit is the main factor to loose, probably couple of more visits of Modi to Karnataka , BJP would have vanished completely . Kannadigas are secular in nature, unlike Gujarat. They are educated and wise in nature. Even Shivsena was satisfied with the results. Isn`t it shocking ?
