Bengaluru 15 May 2018: (Bhatkallys News Bureau) As the Karnataka assembly election is heading towards a hung assembly with no party reaching the magical number of absolute majority in the state, Janata Dal (s) according to reports has cracked a deal with the Congress party after agreeing to make a coalition government with Kumaraswamy being the chief minister of the state.

A win for the Congress would boost the party’s morale for the Assembly elections in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Mizoram in November-December, and for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. It would also ensure that the party would not be reduced to ruling only one big state, that of Punjab, in the entire country.

However reports also says that the BJP set to be the single largest party in the assembly will claims its stakes at forming the government in the state.

BJP CM Candidate BS Yeddiyurappa said “So far final results have not been announced. Shortly, we will know the exact figures and then we will work out the future plan.”
