Live Karnataka election results BJP maintain leads in Karnataka

As leads indicate, BJP looks all set to form a government in Karnataka. Karnataka's incumbent chief minister Siddaramaiah of the Congress is trailing in Chamundeshwari and leading in Badami. A total of 2,654 candidates, including 216 women candidates were in the fray for the Assembly Elections this year. According to the data on Election Commission of India's website, JD(S) leader GT Deve Gowda won from Chamundeshwari seat in 2013 by a margin of 7,103 votes. Currently, Deve Gowda is leading against Congress' Siddaramaiah by a margin of 25,861.

Election in the R.R. Nagar constituency in Bengaluru has been postponed following the seizure of over 9,000 voter ID cards. Election in Jayanagar in the city has also been countermanded following the demise of BJP candidate and sitting MLA Vijay Kumar.

In a virtual admission that the Congress may fall short of a majority in Karnataka, senior Congress leaders Ashok Gehlot and Mallikarjun Kharge expressed possibilities of an alliance with the JD(S). 

Following the leads very closely, energy minister and Congress leader D.K. Shivakumar told the media that the numbers indicated that his party was on the way out after five years in power.
