Bangalore, May 8: BS Yeddyurappa, former Chief Minister of Karnataka, seems to have succeeded in his mission of assuring defeat of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Early trends on Wednesday, May 8 clearly shows that the party may lose its power to Congress.

Anticipating Congress' victory, Yeddyurappa-led party -- Karnataka Janata Paksha (KJP) declared that they would support the former if situation demands.
