K'taka polls: BJP confident of forming government in Karnataka

While local leaders did not always attack Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and his ministers, Shah was unsparing in his criticism, including remarks like "Siddaramaiah government is not AHINDA (Kannada acronym for minorities, backward classes and Dalits) but Ahindu (anti-Hindu)".

BJP leader and daughter of NTR, D Purandareswari was confronted by the Telugu people when she went to campaign in Telugu people dominated areas in Karnataka. He asked the 1600-odd booths to resolve on Sunday that in 2019, "we will not only win both seats (Lok Sabha) but when the next State Assembly elections are held, then the NDA will win more than 35 out of 40 seats and the BJP flag is kept flying high".

The party was slightly down after the two by-poll defeats in Uttar Pradesh.

Amid a speculation on hung assembly, Karnataka's political scenario gets intensive, All the parties are putting every effort to form the Government. In Goa too, regional parties like Goa Forward Party (GFP) and Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) played a pivotal role in the BJP-led government formation, even as Congress had the maximum MLAs in 2017 elections.

"The wave of hope created by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has now been transformed into a wave of faith and the people have expressed it through their mandate", he told PTI.

The voting pattern in regions dominated by Telugu people, like Hyderabad Karnataka, Bengaluru City, Bellary, Raichur, Chickballapur and Kolar seems to suggest the trend.

"The Karnataka election results are as per our expectations".

"'The Congress used politics of caste to divide people and tried to incite Dalits on SC/ST Act in Karnataka", he said.

"Had it been a Siddaramaiah versus Yeddyurappa contest, the former and the Congress would have won easily".
