Bengaluru: Voting has been completed on 224 seats in Karnataka. A total of 65.69 percent votes were cast. Result will be announced on May 13. But before that exit polls have been declared.


Exit polls for Karnataka's 224-member assembly on Wednesday showed a close fight between the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and the opposition Congress, with the Janata Dal (S) playing a key role.

Exit polls from five agencies circulated just after polling showed no major wave trends in favor of any party and while two exit polls showed the BJP close to a working majority, one showed the Congress crossing the majority mark. These surveys have predicted 79 to 117 seats for the BJP, 86 to 118 for the Congress and 14 to 33 for the Janata Dal-S.

Congress and BJP leaders have claimed a big victory for their respective parties in different statements. The counting of votes will take place on May 13. Around 66 per cent voters are reported to have exercised their franchise till last reports came in.

The exit polls that have come so far show the possibility of a hung assembly in Karnataka. The Congress seems to be the single largest party, but a few seats short of a majority. BJP is at number two and JDS at number three in all the three polls.

This is the result of 3 exit polls. Just wait for two days, the results will come on 13th May. 113 MLAs are needed to form the government.
