Denial of tickets to his second son Vijayendra and his close confidante and Lok Sabha MP, Shobha Karandlaje were seen as a setback for the former chief minister.

The Prajana News channel has shown BJP having chance of winning 102 to 110 seats followed by Congress at between 76 to 80 while JD (S) winning possibly 35 to 39 seats. However, before the formal announcement of the results, several agencies conducted exit polls, predicting the outcome. "At 6 feet you drown (sic)".

He further said that the Congress party does not need the JD (S) since they will form the government with an absolute majority. Relax & enjoy your weekend. The 2013 Assembly polls recorded a turnout of 71.45%.

Speaking to reporters in Chamundeshwari constituency, one of the two seats from where he contested in the high-stakes polls, along with Badami in north Karnataka, the Congress leader said, "This will be my last election".

Senior Dalit leader Mallikharjuna M Kharge and State Congress president G Parameshwara are the two top contenders for the Chief Minister post if the JD (S) agrees to the proposal.

Vijayapura-based analyst and a longtime follower of Lingayat politics Prof Omkara Kakade tends to agree with the Chanakya findings and says, "If 40 or cent or less have voted for Congress, it will be erroneous to suggest that Siddaramaiah's Minority tag card for Lingayat community did not work". "We are coming back (sic)", he said.

As the curtain came down on the electioneering in Karnataka, which went to polls on Saturday to elect its next government, May 15 will reveal whether the Congress will retain power in Karnataka or voters really went for BJP's poll slogan "Sarkara badalisi, BJP gellisi" or former prime minister HD Deve Gowda led JD (S) would emerge as the "Kingmaker".

Chief Minister Siddharamaiah indicated that the current elections would be the last he would fight and will bid adieu to electoral polity.

Siddaramaiah had called Yeddyurappa "mentally disturbed" when asked to respond to BJP's chief ministerial candidate's statement that he would form the government on May 17. The post-poll surveys claimed that the Janata Dal (Secular) or JD (S) will be the "kingmaker" with almost 40 seats.

"While we will get 130 seats, Congress won't cross 70". The Congress knows that it will lose.

Also, some said that the exit polls aren't true and the truth will come out on Tuesday when the election commission will count the voting and tell the result to the whole nation.
