It predicts 82 to 94 seats for the Congress, while the JD (S) and others will get 18-31 seats and 1 to 8 seats respectively.

The BJP is making an all-out bid to oust the Siddaramaiah government in Karnataka and is looking to come back to power in the state with B.S. Yeddyurappa as its chief ministerial candidate. The Congress quickly arrived at an understanding with former prime minister Deve Gowda' regional party and agreed that his son HD Kumaraswamy will be the Chief Minister of a coalition government and that the Congress will get to name a Dalit leader as his deputy.

If the Congress and JD (S) get their act together fast, then they have to be invited by the governor before the BJP has a chance to form a government and hold a trust vote.

If an election results in a hung assembly, then fresh elections are announced and conducted as soon as possible.

"We will win with a majority", said BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia.

New volcanic lava fissure in Hawaii prompts more evacuations

ABP C-Voter exit poll has predicted 101-113 seats for BJP, claiming that the saffron party is likely to reach the "magic figure" of 113 seats.

India Today-Axis My India surveyed 70,574 voters in all the 222 assemblies that went to polls. It said that JD (S) will win 30-39 seats and others 2-4 seats. Intellectuals and liberal thinkers who see the BJP's rise as detrimental to India's secular ethos are keeping their fingers crossed that the Party should lose Karnataka so that it takes time to introspect.

The Congress had won 122 seats and the BJP 40 seats in the last Karnataka Assembly election in 2013.

It has become customary for "national" media of different persuasions to carry out their exit polls and speculate on the election results.

Recent reports, however, suggest that Congress has approached JD (S) for a post-poll alliance, in the event of a hung assembly. So far, it has had limited success in the South.
