Bengaluru: The BJP dramatically surged ahead towards the victory mark in the Karnataka Assembly election on Tuesday, leaving the ruling Congress badly bruised and the JD-S at the third spot, officials said.

Reports from counting centres across the southern state showed that BJP candidates were on the winning track in 119 constituencies while the Congress was in the lead in 55. A total of 222 constituencies voted on Saturday.
Any party or grouping will need 113 of the total 224 seats to secure a majority in the Assembly.
The

Karnataka, currently ruled by the Congress party, is home to the technology hub of Bengaluru. It is the first major state electing an assembly this year and will be followed by three more. The BJP now rules 21 of India’s 29 states.

Janata Dal leader H.D. Deve Gowda said his party would decide its position “once all the results are out”, CNN News 18 quoted the former Indian prime minister as saying.

Investors are watching the contest closely as they worry a loss for Modi would force him to double down on populist measures, such as extending farm loan waivers a year before the 2019 elections.
