Mini

Karnataka ByElection Results 2019 LIVE UPDATES: The BJP government led by B. S. Yediyurappa is set to retain power, after winning 12 of the 15 seats that went to bypolls on December 5. In a major setback to the Congress, the party could manage to win only two seats. The regional Janata Dal Secular party was also decimated with it drawing blank. BJP rebel and independent candidate Sharat Bachegowda won Hosakote assembly seat. BJP's victory will in the Karnataka bypolls will come as a shot in the arm ahead of the third phase of Jharkhand assembly elections on December 12. The bypolls were held to fill vacancies caused by the disqualification of 17 rebel Congress and JD(S) MLAs, whose revolt led to collapse of the H D Kumaraswamy-led coalition government in July and paved the way for BJP to come to power. The BJP needed to win at least six of the 15 seats to remain in majority in the 225-member assembly. Here are the major highlights from the Karnataka bypolls results today:

    At a time when the BJP is losing footprint in states, the recent being in Maharashtra, it has got a major boost with the thumping victory in Karnataka by-elections. The Karnataka result would not only determine whether Yeddyurappa stays in power. It would also nudge its cadre to renewed activism ahead of the third phase of Jharkhand elections due on December 12.

    Seventeen Assembly constituencies spread across eight districts of Jharkhand will vote for the 81-member Assembly.

    In Karnataka, the party has already won 12 of the fifteen seats that went to the polls. Party's Chief Minister Yeddyurappa required just 6 more seats for a majority in the 224-member Assembly in which the party had 105 MLAs already.

    The Karnataka by-elections, too, will have ripple effect in the ongoing Jharkhand election, where surveys predict a hung Assembly, and in poll-bound Delhi. The Karnataka victory, thus, assumes significance, so much so that Congress leader D.K. Sivakumar had to reluctantly concede that Kernataka has chosen "defectors".

    Karnataka's regional party Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) is facing a total rout in the state Assembly bypolls, as it failed to open account even in the 12 seats it contested on December 5 separately. 

    The JD-S, which won 36 seats in the May 2018 Assembly elections, came to power in the southern state after 12 years in a post-poll alliance with the Congress, which allowed H.D. Kumaraswamy to become the chief minister for the second time.

    Resignation of 14 Congress and three JD-S rebel legislators in mid-July, however, led to the fall of the 14-month-old fledgling coalition government on July 23 after Kumaraswamy lost the confidence vote in the 225-member Assembly.

    Like its former ally (Congress), the JD-S won only one Lok Sabha seat ,Hassan, in the April-May general elections though it contested in 7 of the 28 seats in the state in a pre-poll alliance with the former.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi welcomed the bypoll results in Karnataka and said that those who formed the government through backdoor ignoring people's mandate have been taught a lesson. The Prime Minister was speaking at a rally in Jharkhand's Hazaribagh on Monday.

    "The Karnataka bypoll results is answer to the Congress which grabbed the power through backdoor. It is also answer to all states where mandate of people has been ignored," said Modi.

    He further said, "People have responded through democratic way. Today bypoll results have decided who would rule Karnataka. The BJP was given mandate but Congress hatched a conspiracy and grabbed the power from backdoor. It is the old habit of the Congress to play behind the curtain. People have now punished them. People have chosen a stable and strong government for development of Karnataka".

    The BJP is heading for a landslide victory in Karnataka Assembly by-elections, as it is ahead in 12 of the 15 seats it contested on December 5, as the final result is yet to be declared.

    "The people of Jharkhand should also learn from Karnataka. The situation like Karnataka should not crop up in Jharkhand after the polls. The Congress has never believed in coalition politics. They have treated allies like puppets in lieu of support," Modi further said.

    "If there is a hung Assembly, Jharkhand will witness Karnataka like situation", Modi warned.

The Congress had won 80 seats and the JD-S 36 in the May 2018 Assembly elections.

    Bharatiaya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Rajya Sabha member Subramanian Swamy on Monday heaped praise on Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa, for 'winning so many seats in the assembly by-elections', even before the Election Commission declared the result.

    "I am happy that party colleague and long standing friend Yediyurappa has demonstrated a fine voter support in the crucial state of Karnataka," tweeted Swamy.

    Though BJP is leading in 11 of the 15 seats which went to the bypolls on December 5, Swamy was a little too early in congratulating Yediyurappa that he has won many seats even before the Election Commission has declared a winner yet.

    Swamy's premature tweet has already been tweeted by 860 people and liked by 5,400 enthusiasts.

    The ruling party requires a minimum of 7 seats in the 223-member Assembly for a simple majority with 112 as the halfway mark, the BJP will continue to stay in power in Karnataka for over another 3 years till May 2023 after winning the required seats on Monday.
