Karnataka Assembly election Results 2018: Full list of Congress winners

Bengaluru: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) emerged as the single largest party in Karnataka Assembly polls winning 104 seats, but falling short of a majority. The Congress bagged 78 seats and Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) ended up with 37. The Bahujan Samaj Party, who was in alliance with the JD-S bagged one seat. In a roller-coaster ride for BJP, it initially appeared that the party was set to return to power after a five-year hiatus with a resounding majority. But at the end of counting of votes, it came tantalisingly close to the numbers needed to form the government.

At least ten ministers fell by the wayside as they lost their seats in an anti-incumbency wave. The Election Commission announced that the Congress notched 38 percent of votes as against BJP's 36.2 percent. JD-S, headed by former PM HD Deve Gowda, got 18.4 percent votes.

Following is the full list of the Congress winners:
