  • Modi beats Congress in key battleground

A similar "futile" exercise was done by Congress when the UPA II chose to divide Andhra Pradesh and carve out Telangana as a separate state just before the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

A party must have 113 seats to form a government.

If it forms a government in Karnataka, the BJP and its allies would govern 22 of India's 29 states.

"2019 is going to be BJP versus nobody, Modi versus nobody", said his party colleague Seshadri Chari.

The results are not just a snub to Chief Minister K Siddaramiah but also to Congress president Rahul Gandhi as it will be now hard for him to lead any united opposition front against the Narendra Modi-led BJP juggernaut.

'The reduction of the number of seats of the Congress in Karnataka itself shows its defeat, 'Mr Paswan said.

The state of 60 million people, which includes the wealthy technology hub of Bangalore, is seen as a bellwether for next year's elections at which Narendra Modi will seek another term as prime minister. "Till the time Congress is under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, the party can never succeed".

Expressing confidence of the victory of the BJP in Karnataka, Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Tuesday said the country is moving towards a "Congress mukt Bharat" (Congress free India). Referring to the INLD and the BSP recently entering into an alliance for next year's Lok Sabha and Haryana Assembly polls, he said: "The era of alliance has come to an end and the alliance struck by them is unnatural and has no meaning".

"Meetings and discussions were held with NRIs there. This system would be implemented in Haryana", he added.
