    By Deepika

    Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala on Saturday predicted that his party will win more than 130 of the 224 constituencies in Karnataka -higher than the 113 needed for a simple majority.

    Addressing a press conference, Surjewala said that "Congress will get 130 plus seats, and corrupt and criminal Yeddy-Reddy gang will be rejected by the people of Karnataka."

    Meanwhile, BJP President Amit Shah recently predicted that the BJP will win more than 130 of the 224 assembly seats in the state.

    "People are angry with the Siddaramaiah government. The number of farmer suicides in the state is the highest in the country. Many of our workers were killed, but the government failed to give justice to their families. The CM is contesting in two seats but he will lose in Badami with a bigger margin than in Chamundeshwari," Shah said.

    On Saturday, polling took place for only 222 seats. The voting in the two constituencies Rajarajeshwari Nagar and Jayanagar will take place later.

    The Election Commission deferred polling to the Rajarajeshwari Nagar constituency over "fake" electoral identity cards that were discovered on Tuesday. Polling in the constituency will now be held on May 28 and counting will take place on May 31.

    Polling had earlier been countermanded in Jayanagar constitunency following the death of the sitting BJP legislator BN Vijay Kumar a few days ago.

    However, the results of the rest of the 222 seats will be out on May 15.
