Karnataka poll result: NCP surprised, wants paper ballots over EVMs

Uddhav Thackeray Karnataka Election Result 2018: Uddhav Thackeray calls it EVMs victory, asks BJP to fight polls with ballot papers
Kenny Thornton | 17 May, 2018, 03:42

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray challenged Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that they should hold elections through ballot papers to clear doubts over the use of electronic voting machines (EVMs). "If you (BJP) trust yourself, hold elections through ballot papers once", Uddhav said.

"We had a telephonic conversation with Deve Gowda ji and Kumaraswamy".

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also took to Twitter and congratulated the victor of Karnataka polls. The election in Jayanagar segment was countermanded in the wake of the demise of BJP candidate BN Vijaya Kumar on May 4.

The Congress alleged that in Karnataka, too, the electoral process was rigged. Several exit polls have earlier predicted a hung Assembly with no major political party seem to be gaining a clear majority in the state. He congratulated those, who have won and said the Chief Minister of Karnataka should respect the Marathi person in Karnataka. Among the candidates are four sitting and former chief ministers - the current CM Siddaramaiah, former BJP chief ministers BS Yeddyurappa and Jagdish Shettar, and JDS leader HD Kumaraswamy.

Google rolls back Chrome update that broke web-based audio
The Chromium team confirms: "We've updated Chrome 66 to temporarily remove the autoplay policy for the Web Audio API". Google is partially disabling Chrome's fancy auto-mute feature after it silenced some web games and art projects.

A total of 2,655 candidates are in the fray for the 224 seats in Karnataka Assembly. While the NCP will contest the Bhandara-Gondia seat, the Congress will fight the Palghar seat. His switching over party would help the BJP in spreading its social base, senior BJP leaders have said.

In Karnataka, NCP has given unconditional support to Congress.

Patil said BJP was losing popularity and therefore, NCP and Congress were working towards forging an alliance in future polls.

The BJP emerged as the single largest party today but fell nine seats short of a majority in Karnataka, while the Congress backed third-placed JD (S) for a post-poll alliance.
