West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee feels results of the Karnataka Assembly Polls would have been very different had if Congress and JD (S) had a pre-poll alliance. She also congratulated all the winners and asked the losers to fight back.
A day before the polling, Mamata Banerjee predicted JD (S) chief HD Kumaraswamy will become the next Chief Minister of Karnataka as neither Congress nor BJP could obtain magic figure on their own. She firmly believed there will be Hung Assembly in Karnataka and the role to be played by HD Deve Gowda gonna be crucial.
Didi told HD Kumaraswamy could be next CM if JD (S) wins 28-30 seats. In fact, JD (S) won around 40 seats but it's not in a commanding position as BJP emerged so close to magic figure and Congress fell short of it by a big margin.
Mamata has clearly indicated BJP can be defeated only with collective fight by like-minded parties. Will the parties opposing BJP learn a lesson from what happened in Karnataka Polls?
