New Delhi: Proving almost every exit poll wrong, BJP cruised to become the single-largest  party in the Karnataka Assembly elections 2018.

Here is a quick recap of who said what on counting day:

Rahul Gandhi's immature challenges too hurt Congress. The party has no leadership. I had repeatedly said 115 to 120 for BJP in Karnataka. Hindus in Karnataka's society were hurt by the Lingayat issue. We have won everywhere in the state, including in villages. People recognised that BJP is working towards ending corruption in the country: Subramanian Swamy, BJP

 

 

BJP took control of EVMs. People are losing faith in democracy. When people are complaining about EVMs, I want to ask BJP and Election Commission regarding why they are reluctant to come to paper ballots: Mohan Prakash, Congress

This is a historic win for BJP. I want to thank all the people of Karnataka for voting for us. Ab desh mein Congress khojo abhiyan chalega, kahaan rahegi pata nahi: Raman Singh, Chhattisgarh CM (Read full report here)

Rahul Gandhi did his best, but it is we who have lost the elections. We, the local leadership, should have en-cashed it in a proper way & because of which we lost it: DK Shivkumar, Congress

People of Karnataka want good governance, that is why they have chosen BJP. This is a big victory for the party. Congress is losing state after state & we are winning state after state: Prakash Javadekar, BJP Karnataka in-charge

Will stand by Rahul bhai till I have blood in me: Navjot Singh Sidhu, Congress

This is a victory of truth, of development. Those who have been opposing us have every right to question us but it is about time they also respect people's decision in support for our party: Ravi Shankar Prasad, BJP

We still stand with Rahul Gandhi, believe in what he has to say. But it is about time that Priyanka Gandhi gets a bigger say in the party and a bigger role: Jagdish, a Congress worker outside party headquarters in New Delhi

People have rejected Siddaramaiah. He lost because of his attitude, because of attacking everyone and because of his loose talk: GT Devegowda, JD-S

PM Modi brought clarity to BJP's campaign in Karnataka. We have just issue - development. We kept walking on a positive road with development. Congress made false statements and false allegations regarding Dalits. We kept replying with facts and never backed away. Congress made false statements and false allegations regarding Dalits. We kept replying with facts and never backed away. Congress president himself was propagating fake news through his Twitter account. The party always tries to play divide and rule card: Nirmala Sitharaman, BJP

Congratulations to the winners of the Karnataka elections. For those who lost, fight back. If Congress had gone into an alliance with the JD(S), the result would have been different. Very different: Mamata Banerjee, TMC

BJP's southward march has begun: Ram Madhav, BJP
