Karnataka by-polls brought good news for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as the BS Yeddyurappa-led government has held on to the small majority it had in Karnataka. 12 out of the 15 seats that went to polls in the Karnataka by-elections, went the way of the BJP, taking their overall count to (105 + 12) 117, 5 more than the halfway mark. The by-polls were necessitated by the disqualification of 17 MLAs of the Congress and the JDS.

The coalition was not functioning smoothly. MLAs resigned as they were unhappy. These MLAs can no longer be called "disqualified". Yediyurappa's govt had to be saved and stabilised.

01:05 pm: I am happy that people have given a very good verdict. Now, without any problem we can give a pro-people and a stable government, says Yediyurappa

12:59 pm: What the country thinks about political stability and for political stability how much the country trusts BJP, an example of that is in front of us today. BJP is leading on most seats. I express my gratitude towards people of Karnataka: PM Narendra Modi 

12:58 pm: The people of Karnataka have put forth their mandate and have shown the Congress and JD(S) cannot betray them any longer.
