Karnataka Exit Poll: BJP Set to Make a Clean Sweep

BJP is set to win 21-25 seats, big question mark over Congress-JD(S) alliance.

New Delhi: The BJP is expected to make a clean sweep in Karnataka. India Today-Axis My India Exit Poll predicts that the BJP will win between 21 and 25 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka.

Karnataka has 28 Lok Sabha seats.

The exit poll predicts that the Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) alliance will not be able to win more than 3-5 seats in Karnataka. The India Today-Axis My India Exit Poll has forecast 0-1 seats for the others.

In 2014 Lok Sabha elections the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won 17 seats while the Congress won nine seats in Karnataka.

The Congress and BJP are in a direct contest in Karnataka. Last year, the Congress and JD (S) joined hands to form government in Karnataka after the combine managed to cross the halfway mark in the state assembly.

Elections in Karnataka were held on April 18 and April 23.

If the exit polls hold true, then the Congress-JD(S) alliance will head for serious trouble.
