Yeddy return key to BJP's success

Bangalore: TEAM TOI

The Times of India May 17 2014

Karnataka 2014

Just a year after losing power in Karnataka, the BJP swept the state, winning 17 out of the 28 seats.

While it rode on the Narendra Modi wave, Congres was reduced to nine seats and JD(S) managed a mere two.

The results are a big blow to chief minister Siddaramaiah who was all prepared to celebrate completion of his one year in office on May 19 and KPCC president G Parameshwara. Both were confident of bagging 18-20 seats as mandated by the Congres high command.

The Congres also lost in Siddaramaiah's home district Mysore and noises already being heard asking Siddaramaiah to emulate Assam CM Tarun Gogoi by resigning.

Unfazed by the results, Siddaramaiah said, “The results are not a reflection of my performance. My government has given good welfare programmes. There is no question of me resigning.“

The BJP rode the Modi wave but had got its house in order before the elections for a good performance. It boosted its position in north Karnataka by readmitting former CM B S Yeddyurappa. The split in the BJP had cost the party the assembly elections in 2013.

The BJP has also swept Bangalore city and regained ground in the coastal belt, a R.S.S. hotbed, by winning the Dakshina Kannada, UdupiChikmagalur and Uttara Kannada seats.

Congres could retain only four of the seats from last time. It. The elections are also a set-back to Deve Gowda's family and party , JD(S). Contesting 26 seats it managed to win only two, Gowda from Hassan and C S Puttaraju from Mandya.

While BJP made new inroads in its near-sweep of Karnataka, its stronghold, Bengaluru city, saw loyal voters re-electing the party in all three constituencies. But the saffron wave could not wrest Bengaluru Rural, which was retained by Congress, the only saving grace for it in the state.

In the high-profile Bengaluru South segment, which hogged the limelight from as early as November 2018 when six-time MP and Union minister HN Ananth Kumar passed away, rookie Tejasvi Surya (28) romped home. Surya, whose candidature came as a surprise to many, had top leaders campaigning for him. Party colleague, Union minister D V Sadananda Gowda, who campaigned in the name of Modi, also retained Bengaluru North.

While these two seats saw comfortable victories for BJP, Bengaluru Central segment, which sitting MP PC Mohan retained handsomely at the end, witnessed a see-saw battle through the day. Congress’ Rizwan Arshad, who fell to his second consecutive defeat to Mohan was more competitive than BJP anticipated.

Bengaluru maintained status quo, with DK Suresh remaining undefeated in Bengaluru Rural. The constituency has two large urban regions—Rajarajeshwarinagar and Bengaluru South assembly constituencies which come under Bengaluru city—but that did not seem to help the BJP candidate.
