PM Narendra Modi has called the BJP ‘majority’ of 105 seats in the Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018 as an extraordinary and unprecedented victory. He accused the Opposition of using “underhand methods” to subvert democracy. The Congress with 76 seats and the JD-S with 39 seats have staked claim to form government.
"I want to assure people of Karnataka that the BJP will not allow the Opposition parties to trample their verdict," he said in his address to the party’s Parliamentary Board. Also addressing the meeting, BJP national president Amit Shah mocked the Congress saying “that those with 43 seats in Lok Sabha” were trying to stake claim, and accused his rivals of using money power and caste politics to “divide Karnataka”.
