Congress back with a bang in Karnataka; BJP, KJP bite the dust

 

Congress back with a bang in Karnataka; BJP, KJP bite the dust Zee Media Bureau

Bangalore:The Congress on Wednesday stormed back to power in Karnataka in a spectacular fashion after seven years, decimating the ruling BJP and BS Yeddyurappa’s KJP along the way.

In good tidings for a party battered by a series of scams at the national stage, Congress put up an impressive show in the elections bagging 121 seats, eight more than the half-way mark in a House of 224, obviating the need for crutches and belying predictions.

Polls were held for 223 seats with one countermanded after a BJP candidate died.

However, it would not be easy for the Congress high command to name its choice for Chief Minister’s chair. Senior Congressmen who see themselves as the right choice for the top job have already started to lobby support in their favour.

Among those waiting with bated breath are Siddaramaiah, DK Shiva Kumar, G Parameshwara, Veerappa Moily and Mallikarjuna Kharge. For the record Sonia Gandhi has said that the leader will be chosen by the MLAs.

The BJP, which had triumphantly showcased its southern bastion while pitching for respect as a national party, was decimated to just 40 seats in the 224 member assembly.

Victory in the battle for the Vidhan Soudha has come as a breath of fresh air for Congress’ rank and file and also as optimistic news for the party leadership which has been battling multiple allegations of graft/impropriety against its ministers at the Centre.

Embolden by the win, the UPA government adjourned the Parliament sine dine today, two days ahead of schedule.

The BJP has itself to blame for the humiliating loss. Saddled by corruption, infighting within the cadre and rebellion by BS Yeddyurappa, it was all the way down hill for the party that dreams of occupying the South Block in 2014.

The other big story is the hard lesson learnt by BS Yeddyurappa – no individual is bigger than the party. His party, KJP has won 6 seats.

JD(S) of the Gowdas fared better winning 40 seats. However, Kumaraswamy’s wish to play kingmaker would have to wait another five years as the Congress has secured a simple majority.

i completely agree with you(Raj Bangalore. the people who are giving their comments on internet do not decide as to who would rule a state or the country. It is the common man who takes the trouble and goes to the election booth and caste his/her vote. The so called elite class or the educated one can only sit in the AC rooms and make noice. If you want to change the system you will have to part of the yste. You can not make comments on the decsion of the common man who has right ( and the only right) to choose as to who will rule the country.

Anand - bangalore
Corruuption??? yes congress has gained reputation for being crrupt ar central level. But as per bangalore is concerned, BJP has always remained corrupt, since past 9yrs of coalition/majority ruling govt of BJP has made no progress anywhere in karnataka. Being a citizen from pune u just cannot blindly say whats wronbg and what is right. People have very well made their decision on to support the right party they need. U cannot comment on common man`s decission/opinion. First try to collect the evidence/facts why the ruling party collapsd and then go forward with your comments. You seem to be frustrated on the corruption charges( u are right) but for the present condition of karnataka a change is much needed and people have made it

BJP a safe state...what a joke.Even though i hate congress , bjp is no lesser Evil.They are involved in equally 50% level of scams as congress.they show they remove leaders because only that will give them an edge over congress and show people they are taking action against corrupt while their intention is for more power.Yes BJP has some positives like no family dynasty and puts leaders who have fared better in performance.but the scams of this country will not stop with bjp , its just a brother of congress in corruption.Kejriwal should be given a chance as he is behind the root of the reasons behind corruption.congress has been in politics for 60 years, BJP for 25 years , BOTH failed

In the BJP ruling states there is development but there is some what a communal thing is involved and there is no secularism. Inspite of the fact that congress is corrupted it is winning this is why because they have a secular image. This is the right time that BJP start concentrating on there Ideologies, because no party which wants to become a national party or wants to rule India should be a communal since India is a secular country.
