The turnout was the highest-ever in Karnataka since the 1952 Assembly elections, he said. Some exit poll is showing the different-2 results and some are claiming that both big parties Congress and BJP is going to get stick competition from each other. "Exit opinion polls are entertainment for the next 2 days", he said.

Yeddyurappa said the public was largely unhappy with the current Siddaramaiah-led Congress government in the state.

"So, Dear party workers, supporters & well wishers, don't worry about exit polls". A 70-per cent voter turnout was recorded in the high-stakes election.

Pujdeme refused to run for the presidency of Catalonia
Former Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont announced his decision to renounce leadership of Catalonia on Wednesday. But he has been a major cultural figure over the last decade pushing for the region to fully break from Spain .

"I am ready to sacrifice chief minister's post for a Dalit", ANI cited Tv9 Kannada quoting Siddaramaiah as saying.

In what is projected as a tight race, voting was held in 222 out of 224 seats in a three-cornered contest among the ruling Congress, the BJP and former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda's JD (S).

Exit polls released by various news organisations and survey agencies on Saturday revealed the possibility of a hung assembly with majority predicting that BJP will likely emerge as the single-largest party in the election.

Good players are always compatible: Zinedine Zidane on Neymar speculation
Neymar has since been unveiled as the cover star for PSG's 2018-19 home kit, which was made official just after Emery's appearance in front of the press.

The BJP and its allies are now in power in 22 of India's 29 states, but after Karnataka, three more state elections will fall due by the end of the year. As has been the practice, no sooner did the voting end, the TV channels began to flash its own exit poll predictions. "Relax & enjoy your weekend", he tweeted on Sunday. They predicted 79-82 and 80-93 seats for the BJP, respectively. The post-poll surveys claimed that the Janata Dal (Secular) or JD (S) will be the "kingmaker" with almost 40 seats.

The last Assembly election in 2013 had witnessed 71.4 per cent polling, it said.

It was highly unlikely for the JD (S) to tie-up with the BJP as it had a "bitter experience" forming a government with the saffron party in 2008 and the alliance ended on a bad note. "Mr Siddaramaiah will lose both in Badami and Chamundeshwari".
