Union Chemicals and Fertilisers Minister DV Sadananda Gowda had also said that the BJP is ready to form the government in Karnataka following fresh trouble in the ruling Congress-JD(S)government.

"If the Governor calls us, certainly we are ready to form the government as we are the single largest party. We have got 105 people with us," he had said when asked if the next government will be that of the BJP.

After the polls though the BJP emerged big with 104 seats, Congress with 80 seats got tie up with the JD (S) with 37 seats to form coalition government. It made Kumaraswamy chief minister while magic figure to clinch power was 113 seats out of 225 seats in Karnataka Assembly.
