Congress-JDS coalition defeats BJP 4-1 in Karnataka bypolls

Updated : November 07, 2018 06:52 AM IST

The BJP suffered an embarrassing reverse in Ballari, a seat it had been winning since 2004 with a vice-like grip of the mine-rich district by the controversial Reddy brothers, but it managed to hold on to the Shivamogga Lok Sabha seat.
With Tuesday's victory, the Congress-JD(S) alliance's tally will go up to 120 seats in the 224-member assembly, where the BJP has 104 MLAs.
The BJP had emerged as the single largest party in the assembly polls but failed to muster numbers to form a government, paving the way for the JDS-Congress combine.
