Will Congress Not Be Able To Form Government In Karnataka Even If It Gets 110 Seats; What JD (S) Leader Tanvir Ahmed Said?

Bengaluru: Senior Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) leader Tanvir Ahmed has hinted at a possible post-poll alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the face of a hung mandate in Karnataka, saying that the state assembly elections Even after getting 110 seats in Congress, it will not be able to form the government.

The JD-S leader's remarks came in the wake of exit polls showing a hung mandate in the Karnataka elections.

In a prime time discussion of an English news channel, Ahmed said, “I would like to reiterate that no party, especially the Congress, can form the government. I challenge that even if Congress gets 110 seats, it will not be able to form the government."

He said that the decision on his party's post-poll alliance has already been taken and it will be announced to the people at the right time.

Both Cong, BJP had approached JD (S)

Ahmed claimed that both the Congress and the BJP tried to approach his party to form a coalition government as most exit polls predicted the JD-S to win 20-25 seats. He said that without JD-S no party can form a majority government and his party does not have resources and means like national parties, but it is certain to be part of the next government in the state.

Meanwhile, former chief minister BS Yediyurappa and other BJP leaders ruled out any idea of forging a post-poll alliance with the JD-S, saying their party was expected to win the polls with a majority.
