After some exit polls have had given indication that the BJP is quite likely to form the next government in Karnataka, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Karnataka chief ministerial candidate B.S. Yeddyurappa has said that his party would resister resounding victory in the state and decimated the Congress government with an overwhelming majority.
Addressing a press conference , Yeddyurappa expressed confidence that there is a strong wave in favour of his party.
“I have seen the exit polls. BJP will win more than 125-130 seats. Congress will not be able to cross 70 seats and Janata Dal ( (Secular) (JD-S) will not cross 24-25 seats. There is a silent and strong wave in favour of BJP and public anger against Siddaramaiah and Congress,” he said.
Earlier, Party chief Amit Shah too had said that BJP would win 130 seats and that there is no question of a hung assembly happening in Karnataka.
“This will be known when the results would be declared on Tuesday. BJP will form the government with an absolute majority, while Congress will exit from Karnataka,” he added.
When asked about Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s advice on not believing the exit polls, Yeddyurappa said, “I am not saying this. Congress knows that it will lose in the election. There is no question of a hung assembly. I am confident that the BJP will form the government.”
