Karnataka Elections 2023 Zee News Opinion Poll: Can BJP Retain Power Or Will Congress Make A Comeback? Check Here
Karnataka Elections 2023 Zee News Opinion Poll: While the BJP is looking to retain power and buck a four-decade-old trend, Congress is aiming to upstage the saffron camp ahead of crucial 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
Karnataka Elections 2023 Zee News Opinion Poll: The Election Commission on Wednesday (March 29) announced that the much-awaited Assembly elections in Karnataka will be held in a single phase on May 10 and the votes will be counted on May 13. It now remains to be seen whether the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) can buck a four-decade-old trend to script history or whether the grand old party Congress will upstage the saffron camp to up its stakes ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. It is notable that no political party has won a successive mandate in Karnataka since 1985.
All eyes will also be on former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda-led Janata Dal (Secular), which may emerge as a "Kingmaker" by holding the key to government formation, in the event of a hung verdict, as it has done in the past.
