Karnataka Assembly Election Results 2018: After Karnataka win, BJP and allies to rule over 70% Indian population in 21 states

In 2014, when the Narendra Modi government came to power in Delhi, the BJP ruled just seven states. The Congress was in power in 13 states. It is now down to three— Punjab, Mizoram and Puducherry. If BJP manages to form government in Karnataka, the party will be an unprecedented position. After today's results go in its favour, BJP and its allies will rule over 21 out of 29 states in India.

After a series of losses, Congress is looking at being reduced to only two states Punjab and Mizoram and one Union Territory Pondicherry. Today's results may limit the Congress rule to only 2.5 per cent of the Indian population, whereas it main rival NDA could be governing 70 per cent of people across India, by the end of the day.
