Bengaluru: BJP is heading towards another electoral win and is likely to form the next government in Karnataka.

The counting so far has BJP hovering around 100 mark. Congress, on the other hand, is touching 50 seats and JD(S) at 37.

BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate BS Yeddyuruppa is leading from Shikaripura seat while Siddaramaiah is leading from Badami.

If the figures go the BJP way, it will be a major setback for Congress and its president Rahul Gandhi.

A total of 2,654 candidates were in the fray for the Assembly Elections this year. The election is being seen as a litmus test for the political parties ahead of the 2019 general elections.

BJP National president Amit Shah is expected to address the media in late afternoon.
