Mumbai, May 15: The results of Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018 were declared by the Election Commission of India (ECI) earlier today. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) emerged as the single largest party but fell short of the halfway majority mark needed to form the government. Congress & Janata Dal-Secular were in talks to stake a claim to form the government. Talking about the Tumkur district, the BJP won in Chikkanayakanahalli, Tiptur, Tumkur City and Turuvekere constituencies. The Congress won on Koratagere, Kunigal and Pavagada seats, whereas the JDS managed to win on Gubbi, Madhugiri, Sira & Tumkur Rural seats.

In the Karnataka Assembly Polls 2013, the Tumkur district was a Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) stronghold, with the party winning in Chikknayakanhalli, Gubbi, Koratagere, Kunigal, Pavagada, and Turuvekere constituencies. The Congress won in Sira, Tiptur, and Tumkur City constituencies, whereas the BJP won in only Tumkur Rural constituency.

The judgement day saw the results more inclined towards being a hung assembly.  However, it was JD(S) and Congress which formed a hushed alliance and have staked their claim to form the government in Karnataka.

The Karnataka Assembly comprises of 224 constituencies. The results were declared for 222 constituencies; as polling in two seats was deferred to May 28. A party (or an alliance) will need to cross the half-way mark of 112 seats, to form the government.

As the polling results are partially out, it will be interesting to see which party holds an ace in forming the government.
