Lok Sabha elections: Exit polls predict big win for BJP in Karnataka


New Delhi, May 19 (IANS): The efforts of Congress and JD(S) alliance in Karnataka seem to be failing as multiple exit polls showed that the Bharatiya Janata Party will secure a maximum of 18 Lok Sabha seats.

The survey conducted by IANS-C Voter has predicted 18 seats for National Democratic Alliance (NDA) followed by nine for United Progressive Alliance (UPA) and one seat to independent.

The News18 IPSOS exit poll showed that the BJP was set to win 20-23 seats with a vote share of 54.47 per cent and the UPA will wrest five-eight seats with 41.85 per cent of the votes.

As per the India Today Axis poll, BJP will win between 21 and 25 seats and Congress alliance between three and five. The poll has predicted 0-1 seats for others. The Chanakya-News24 exit poll has forecast 23 seats for the BJP and the Congress-led alliance five seats.

The AP-Nielsen Survey predicts 15 seats for NDA and 13 for UPA. The survey has forecast zero for others.

In the 2014 election, the BJP had won 17 seats in the state, while the Congress got nine and the JD(S) just two.

Prominent figures in this election included former Prime Minister and JD(S) supremo H.D. Deve Gowda.

Nikhil Kumaraswamy, a second grandson, contested from Mandya, a seat traditionally held by the Congress but given to the JD(S) in the seat-sharing exercise. He faced off against independent candidate Sumalatha, wife of late actor-turned-politician Ambareesh. She had the support of the BJP as this was the only seat the saffron party did not contest.

For the Congress, leader in the outgoing Lok Sabha and MP from Gulbarga, Mallikarjun Kharge, and state Agriculture Minister Krishna Byre Gowda, were among the prominent faces this election. Gowda contested from Bangalore South against the BJP's union minister Sadananda Gowda.

    The 23rd results will prove that the landslide mandate that BJP got in 2014 will be non existent this time around. The BJP alone got 282 seats in 2014. What the exit polls of 2019 by the paid media channels are broadcasting are the overall results of the NDA with anything between 250-310. So obviously the seats that the BJP will be winning will be consideranbly reduced and to make up for this loss of seats by the BJP the paid media channels are touting the NDA seats as that of the BJP and indirectly trying to prop up the dwindling fortunes of Modi and the BJP..

    Modi has become a liability for the BJP and the country. If the BJP has to reinvent herself then the duo of Modi and Amit Shah will be eased out to get the support of fence sitters like Jagan. Naveen Patnaik and Chanrda Babu. So all this hype about Modi wave in these exit polls are only to give an image boost to Modi and in trying to save Modi and Amit Shah's face over the inherent losses being suffered by the BJP in these elections.

    Karnataka Beware of EVM Tampering.

    Allying with jds was the biggest blunder by cong high command. They should have assessed the ground realities before announcing the alliance. It has helped bjp to make inroads in many seats where they were not strong enough. This should be a lesson to all parties who neglect state leaders and party workers.
