NEW DELHI: A hung As­sem­bly is on the cards af­ter the elec­tions to the Kar­nataka As­sem­bly ended on Sat­ur­day. The B.S. Yed­dyu­rappa-led BJP is set to be elected the sin­gle largest party in Kar­nataka with close to 102-110 seats, fol­lowed by the Congress with 72-78 seats and JDS with 35-39 seats, ac­cord­ing to the NewsX-CNX exit poll. The Congress won 122 seats in the 224-mem­ber Kar­nataka As­sem­bly in 2013, but that was pri­mar­ily be­cause Yed­dyu­rappa had floated a rebel out­fit then and had split votes for the BJP. On the vote share of the three par­ties, the Congress might get a to­tal of 33.75%, BJP 36.09% and the JDS might get around 18.25%, while oth­ers may get some­where around 11.91%.
