Present Scenario Of Karnataka Elections 2018

Behind-the-scenes: The BJP has brought in a wedding band called 'Sohan Band' that is making all the celebratory noise at the national headquarters in Delhi.

Beat The Heat: Maya Sharma spotted this man wearing a Narendra Modi mask, serving buttermilk at the BJP office in Bengaluru.

HD Deve Gowda's regional party JDS has done better than the last time and is heading for a bigger number than the Congress would have hoped. But the regional party will not get to play kingmaker, with the BJP winning a decisive victory instead of the hung verdict projected by exit polls.

BS Yeddyurappa wins Shikaripura in Shivamogga with close to 87,000 votes. Nearly 48 hours before the elections, Mr Yeddyurappa, 75, said his party will win 125 to 130 seats in the state - a prediction that flew in the face of the exit poll results that suggested a split verdict in the state. He had also rattled off a detailed itinerary for after the elections to reporters, which ended with a date for his oath ceremony.

No official word from JDS yet on Congress' offer.

Congress says ready to support  JDS, makes an open offer to HD Deve Gowda's party to lead a new government. 

Congress sources say the party is ready to support the JDS or Janata Dal Secular.
