Party will definitely form the government in Karnataka: BJP leader KS Eshwarappa

Kanna Laxminarayana, a former minister and five-time MLA, who shifted to the BJP after the 2014 general and state assembly elections in AP, was appointed BJP president earlier this month.

As he boasted of BJP ruling in more than 21 states now, the BJP President had no idea what was in store or what was going to happen in the next 48 hours.

Attacking the Congress he said, "The Congress used money and muscle power in Karnataka but it was rejected by people of the state".

The party was slightly down after the two by-poll defeats in Uttar Pradesh. That overconfidence was the undoing of BJP in Karnataka.

Patton also said that it was a historic win for BJP and said by "dismantling the incumbent Congress Government at Karnataka clearly indicated the win of semi final for BJP in 2019 election under the dynamic leadership of Modiji and Amitji which has proven their Charismatic leaderships and peoples' confidence in them again in the Country".

"You can not wish away the regional parties. Did the people of Karnataka support the corruption of B.S. Yeddyurappa or mining-scam accused Gali Janardhana Reddy?" "You can not undermine the importance of regional parties in the politics", Goa Forward Party President Vijai Sardesai said. This was aimed at keeping Lingayat votes intact with the BJP.

"Everyone has to work towards achieving the dream". BJP gained good number of seats in the Karnataka elections and PM Modi also expressed his joy over the outcome. No national party can take regional parties lightly in Goa's politics. "The stakes are different in both states", he added. Forget winning 35 seats, the party may even fail to get to double figures if they fail to make amends and respect the coalition partners. For a party to form a government in the state, it needs a majority of 113 seats in the 224-member Assembly.
