Congress has big reasons for worry in Karnataka, according to exit polls
All exit polls – Times Now-VMR, Today’s Chanakya, News18-IPSOS and India Today-Axis – predict the BJP to get more than 20 out of 28 seats which is more than last time. Which means that the Congress- JDS has failed to work on the ground. This could spell more trouble for the coalition government in the state which has only a thin majority. Already there are MLAs sropping out there; the result if it holds true could deliver a mortal blow.
