Karnataka saw a record turnout of 73% in the assembly elections on Wednesday, 2% higher than the voting percentage of 2018 (71.1%).
 Where the ruling BJP, a combative Congress and the JD(S), which is hoping to be a kingmaker in the event of a hung assembly, are locked in a cliffhanger contest.

Several pollsters predicted that the Congress may have an edge in Karnataka, which is BJP’s southern citadel, in a hung assembly with a couple of them even projecting that the grand old party may get a majority on its own. Counting of votes for the 224-member Assembly will be taken up on May 13.
