9th May, 2013, Bangalore: On Thursday, Karnataka Janata Paksha president and former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, said that the split in votes between his newly formed party and his former party – the Bharatiya Janata Party, has actually helped Congress to snatch 121 seats in the recent assembly polls.
Today, at a media conference, he told that it was not positive votes for Congress’ favor. Congress has won as many as twenty-three seats because of the split votes. Bharatiya Janata Party has got forty seats, but they have just secured twenty percent votes in this election. In 2008 elections, BJP got 110 seats because he was there.
The Karnataka Janata Paksha president added that he is happy with the result, he has got people’s support beyond his expectations. His party has won ten percent of the voted polls and he thinks that Karnataka Janata Paksha has become eligible for Election Commission of India’s recognition. Now, he will work to build his own party.
