During Saturday's polling, Karnataka witnessed an all-time high turnout of 73.07 per cent, with districts other than Bengaluru, bettering even the post-Emergency election (1977) record of 71.9 per cent and the 2013 State election figure of 71.45 per cent.

The former CM said he would be meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP National President Amit Shah on May 15 evening and fix the time and date for the formation of the new government in Karnataka.

The India Today-Axis My India said the Congress will emerge as the largest party, predicted the party's victory on and 106-118 seats.

In the tightly-fought election, the poll of exit polls predicted that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) may get 99 seats, the Congress 88 and the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) 33.

Siddaramaiah's latest comment has now further fuelled the rumours of a possible tie-up between Congress and JD (S) but the strained personal relationship between Karnataka CM and Deve Gowda remains a point of trouble. However, before the formal announcement of the results, several agencies conducted exit polls, predicting the outcome.

Many Congress leaders said that people on the streets both in Bengaluru and rural pockets speak highly of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and his welfare schemes aimed at making the state hunger-free.

As we told you above that B. S. Yeddyurappa is the chief ministerial candidate for BJP and Congress is contesting the present CM Siddaramaiah. Addressing reporters in Chamundeshwari, the Chief Minister dismissed exit poll results and expressed confidence that the Congress would form the Government on its own.

The results of the single-phase Assembly elections will be declared on May 15.

Only the average of seats predicted by two surveys showed any party reaching halfway mark - and one survey predicted this for the Congress, another predicted it for the BJP. "People of Karnataka want to see HD Kumaraswamy as Chief Minister", Ali said. Please note an average of 6+4+2 is 4. "We are coming back (sic)", he said in a tweet. On the other hand, Times Now-VMR said the Congress will win 90-103 seats in karnataka elections 2018. He maintained that the Congress would secure absolute majority.
