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.

Congratulations!! to the people of karnataka. BJP,and other Sangh Parivar groups like Bajrangdal and Sri rama sena were busy with harassing girls in pubs.Majority of the followers of this groups are illiterate lunatics, frustrated with their failure to earn a livelihood. Thanx again!! people of karnataka for cremating communal fanatic politics!!

If you beat up women in Pubs and do moral policing on teenagers. If you make corruption your family business, if you burn down churches and beat up minorities you are bound to lose. Sad but not surprised.
