    Though ruling Congress and JD(S) are contesting the Urban Local Bodies elections separately, they said that they will opt for an alliance only at places where results are hung.

    Congress leaders were in jubilant as the party gained an edge over the BJP. Randeep Singh Surjewala said, " People of Karnataka have once again reposed their faith in Congress by making it the No.1 party in Urban Local Bodies. People have accepted development policies of Congress+JDS Govt & have rejected Jumlas of BJP." 

    Blaming the Congress-JD(S) coalition, BJP state unit President BS Yeddyurappa said, "The BJP should have won more seats but we could not perform the way we wanted to because of the Congress-JD-S coalition." The party, however, is confident of winning a majority in the 2019 Lok Sabha election, he said.

    "People's mandate is with the BJP and we are confident of a majority in the next year's general election," he added.
