    Karnataka Exit Polls: Republic TV-Jan ki Baat show BJP edge over Congress

    The first cut of exit polls by Republic TV-Jan ki Baat, gives BJP an edge over Congress and has predicted 95-114 seats for the Bharatiya Janata Party and 73-82 seats for Congress, whereas JD(S): 32-43.

    Chief Minister Siddaramaiah-led Congress and the BJP are the main contenders for power. However, most pre-poll surveys have predicted a fractured mandate and suggested that former prime minister H D Deve Gowda's JD(S) may play the kingmaker's role.

    Election Commission has said that the voter turnout has reached 70% till 6pm, however, some voters were still standing in queue even at 6pm when the voting was supposed to end.
