BJP party has shown its influence over the public in Karnataka elections 2018, as the party takes a huge lead on the opposition Congress party and it seems that it is ready to dominate a large chunk of the country. While the BJP and its supporters are jubilant over the party's emphatic victory in Karnataka, the ruling Congress today conceded its defeat in what was billed as a precursor to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

The Congress, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) were the main contenders among other national, regional and fringe parties in the May 12 elections. But I wonder to see the BJP's performance in that state. This means it will be a four-way fight with the Shiv Sena, BJP, Congress and local outfit Bahujan Vikas Aghadi (BVA) trying to make a cut in a contest that is very crucial for the BJP, because every contestant wants to beat it.

In Karnataka, NCP has given unconditional support to Congress.

At present, the majority mark is 112 as results will be declared for only 222 seats.

For the Palus Kadegaon assembly bypoll, Vishwajit Kadam is the lone candidate in fray after BJP withdrew its nominee.

He claimed that the image of the BJP and its chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa was "not good" because of the allegations of corruption. There had been some reports on the day of voting, that the EVM at the Hebbal Constituency, was either faulty or tampered with, as even as people pushed any button, the vote wen to BJP.

Talking to mediapersons here after the declaration of results of Karnataka assembly elections, Mr Patil said, "People do not believe in EVMs and numerous prominent people in the country are talking about possibility of tampering of EVMs in favour of a particular party". Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is facing a tough battle to ensure Congress returns to power. He contested from two seats - Chamundeshwari and Badami.
