He also praised the party workers and leaders for their dedication and hard work in the Karnataka assembly elections.

"A big thank you to all those who voted for the Congress in these elections. We appreciate your support and will fight for you.

"Thank you also to our workers and leaders for their dedication and untiring hard work in support of the party," he said on Twitter.

The BJP emerged as the single largest party but fell short of simple majority. The Congress and the JD(S) jointly staked claim to form the government. The BJP has also staked its claim separately after the keenly-contested election.

All eyes are now on Governor Vajubhai Vala who will have to decide whether to call BJP, the single largest winner of seats, to try to form the government or go with the JD(S)-Congress combine, which together have a clear majority in the 224-member Assembly. Elections were held for 222 seats on May 12.
