During the initial stages of the vote count, the Congress party demonstrated a commendable lead in Karnataka, surpassing the halfway mark within a short span of time. The party seemed to have gained substantial ground, leading to a decline in the vote share of the Janata Dal Secular (JDS).
A self-assured Congress party tweeted, “I am invincible. I have unwavering confidence. Yes, today, I am unstoppable.”
Confident Congress leaders expressed their belief that the party would secure more than 120 seats out of the total 224-member assembly.
