  • Coastal Karnataka Election Results 2018 BJP looks all set to net the region

Well, we must say after the Karnataka election battle, the two leaders have started their social media war now. The pre-poll and exit poll results predicted that the state would have hung assembly and JD (S) would play a crucial role in forming the next government. After capturing power under questionable circumstances, the BJP's strategy appears to be to get some Lingayat Congress legislators, resentful of any tie-up with the JD (S), abstain during the voting. I heard he asked for seven days (time to prove majority) but the Governor gave 15.

Earlier, a three-judge bench of the apex court rejected a joint writ petition of the Congress and the Janata Dal-Secular to stall the swearing in of Yeddyurappa at a special hearing early in the day. Unlike several recent elections in which the Congress organisation merely melted away (take the North-eastern states of Meghalaya, Nagaland, and Tripura, for example), the party left no stone unturned in its fight to retain power and yet still could not prevail.

B S Yeddyurappa, who took oath as Chief Minister, said in his first address to BJP workers at the party office Thursday that he will prove his majority "without hurting the image of PM Modi and party leader Amit Shah". Although the Congress will likely marginally increase its vote share, its seat tally will plummet by at least 40 seats. "All the workers are agitated", Congress leader D K Shivakumar said.

Explosive eruption in Hawaii prompts ashfall advisory
She said it was a "real dynamic situation up there" on the summit, and that similar explosive events are still possible. About a quarter-inch of ash is expected to fall in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and in nearby communities.

When justice Sikri proceeded to make an oral observation that they wouldn't restrain the swearing-in, Abhishek Singhvi interjected with: "If Yeddyurappa comes with the letters and the court finds there is no merit in my case, I am out". It is due to sit again on Friday morning.

However, the BJP's predicted victory in the huge southern region today suggests that Modi's rallying in the state paid off and will boost his popularity ahead of the general elections next year.

"For the BJP, while an outright win would have been ideal, the current numbers are still a positive and critical indicator of their standing", Kumar said. Addressing party workers in New Delhi on Tuesday evening, PM Modi said, opposition tried to deceive people during the polls with lies but people have given them a befitting reply.

"Nothing is finalized yet, but all (Congress legislators) are at Eagleton now", Dinesh Gundu Rao, Congress working president said on Thursday.

"Its well-defined party structure, with clear authority lines and highly motivated members, sits in stark contrast to the Congress, which is still plagued by an inability to restructure and re-organize itself in a substantial manner under party president Rahul Gandhi", Rao said.
