The JDS of Deve Gowda has made a big success as it had snatched more seats than the previous year and had shattered all expectations of Congress.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of the Congress is foremost in Badami, a seat that he sought to contest since of worries over his other seat Chamundeshwari, where he is straggling. Mr Siddaramaiah had vacated his Varuna for his own son.

The BJP accused him of discordant policy; the Lingayats remained with the party, shows the result.
Mr Siddaramaiah was renowned for an alliance acronym as AHINDA, which included minorities as Muslims, backward castes and Dalits. though, SC and ST that decide as many as 62 of 224 seats, have busted with the Congress. That is being credited greatly to the function of B Sriramulu, the candidate for Deputy Chief Minister by BJP, who is a tribal leader.
