Counting for Karnataka Legislative Assembly polls begins

Counting for Karnataka Legislative Assembly polls begins

Bengaluru, May 15 (UNI) Counting of votes in one of the toughest electoral battles the Karnataka electoral history had witnessed in the Assembly elections began amidst tight security arrangements through out the state at 0800 hrs on Tuesday.

In the highest ever polling, about 72.36 per cent of the over five crore electorate cast their franchise on May 12 to elect 222 members from 2622 candidates to the 15th Karnataka Assembly.

While Congress had fielded 220 candidates, the BJP had 222 candidates, while the JD(S) which had allied with Bahujan Samaj Party was in the fry in 191 constituencies. BSP has fielded 18 candidates.

As many as 182 members of the outgoing 14th Assembl6y are seeking re-election. Among the contestants there were 119 women.

The ruling Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party are the main contenders with the Janata Dal (secular) of former Prime Minister H D Devegowda putting up a matching fight to claim that they were also in the run for ruling the next next five years.

All the three political parties have rejected the verdict by a number of exit polls which expected a fractured mandate with the BJP having an edge with its numbers like to cross the three figure mark, yet short of majority of 113 in the 224 member house. Polling in Jayanagar has been countermanded due to death of BJP candidate, while in Rajarajeshwari Nagar polling is deferred to May 28 due to large scale election malpractice.

Counting commenced in 38 counting centers in 33 election districts with Mysore, Chitradurga and Dakshina Kannada Districts having two counting centres each and Tumakuru three. The rest have one counting center each. In all 11,160 personnel would be involved in the counting process which would be held under tight security arrangements.

Prominent among those whose fate would be decided included Chief Minister Siddaramaiah in Chamundeshwari and Badami, Former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa in Shikaripura, former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy in Ramanagara and Channapatna and KPCC President G Parameshwara in Koratagere.
