Poll result would have been different had Cong gone with JD(S): Mamata


Had the Congress formed an alliance with the JD (S) before the Karnataka Assembly election, the poll outcome would have been “very different”, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Tuesday.

The TMC leader took to Twitter to congratulate the winners.

According to the latest trends, the BJP is leading in 113 constituencies, the number required for a simple majority in the Assembly.

“If Congress had gone into an alliance with JD (S), the results would have been different, very different,” Banerjee tweeted.

The ruling Congress is ahead in 53 seats, while former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda’s Janata Dal (Secular) is leading in 37 constituencies.

Elections were held in Karnataka on May 12, and the votes are being counted today.
