Karnataka BJP Dreams Shattered By Telugu People

Karnataka result: 'Our southward march has begun' - Ram Madhav says people rejected Chandrababu Naidu's politics

BJP's southward march has begun, Ram Madhav after resounding victory in Karnataka

"People have rejected Naidu's politics", said Ram Madhav in a tweet.

However, BJP Andhra Pradesh unit president Kanna Lakshminarayana maintained, "All those who campaigned in Karnataka are a part of the gang promoted by Chandrababu Naidu to target the BJP". According to them, in 46 constituencies where there are more than 50,000 Telugu voters, BJP won only 5 whereas Congress won 32.

In the 2013 elections the Congress had secured 122 seats with the BJP and the JDS getting 40 seats each. In Bengaluru City, Congress got 15 seats, while BJP got 11 seats.

Hailing the "victory" as the result of BJP President Amit Shah and all the party members' hard work, Union Minister and senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "We feel humbled by the results".

For the outcome of the result in Karnataka assembly elections will also change his fate in the coming days.

While in Tamil Nadu, the ruling AIADMK leadership welcomed the victory and congratulated the BJP for "bellwethering a grand entry to South India", there was no such heartwarming gesture from the two regional parties governing Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

In the Karnataka elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was fighting not only the Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular), but also one party that wasn't even contesting -the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) of Andhra Pradesh (AP).

When the final results were out in the evening, the party's social media team circulated the message that they successfully hurt the BJP in Karnataka. Speaking at a rally, Naidu said "the BJP should be defeated for resorting to conspiracies and collusion politics against its own alliance partner and a new state that had suffered due to bifurcation".

"Vaghela later became chief minister for just a year and was succeeded by Parikh who remained chief minister for 2.5 months". Chickballapur: Total 5 - BJP won 0 Kolar: Total 6 - BJP won 0. JD (S) ally Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) tried its luck in 21 seats.
