The Janata Dal-Secular of former Prime Minister H.D. Dewe Gowda, which has been expected to play the role of a kingmaker in the event of a hung Assembly, was leading in 43 seats. This was at a time when he contested from his own party Karnataka Janata Paksha - after splitting from BJP briefly which failed to back him over corruption charges. What happens next depends entirely on the governor of the state, Vajubhai Vala, who was appointed by the centre four years ago.

India Today-Axis My India surveyed 70,574 voters in all the 222 assemblies that went to polls.

"In a hung assembly, if majority of the elected MLAs form a coalition, the Governor would be constitutionally right in inviting the leader of the majority coalition to form the government and prove their majority within a short period", Finance Minister and constitutional expert Arun Jaitley had tweeted at the time. Some have said the Congress, led by its chief ministerial candidate Siddaramaiah, will emerge as the single largest party, while some have given the single largest party tag to the BJP. The counting in Badami seat has begun and Siddaramaiah is leading by 384 postal ballots. "Every Congressman or (party) activist I have met in Karnataka has no doubt that we will be the single largest party". Again Congress was single largest party with 17 seats and BJP got only 13 seats. remaining 10 seats shared by other parties.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said the Congress and the JDS will never come together.
