Indian Express journalist suffers a meltdown after BJP emerged single largest party in Karnataka

The state of Karnataka awoke to the winds of change on Tuesday, after electoral trends suggest BJP’s emergence as the largest party. As per latest Election Commission data, the BJP has won 91 seats and is leading on 13.

In light of the BJP possibly falling short of the majority mark, the JD(S) can emerge as a kingmaker, possibly at the determent of the BJP, with reports claiming a tie-up between the Congress and Deve Gowda’s party.

However, reports have now emerged that Lingayat MLAs of the Congress are revolting against the party and BJP is in talks with 15 rival MLAs.

Before things looked like going down to the wire, an Indian Express journalist named Naweed Iqbal today suffered a meltdown over BJP’s strong performance in the state, and as a result, grumbled on Twitter:

As seen above, the journalist possibly irked by the Karnataka electoral trends decided to describe India as a “giant cow-belt”. The cow belt is technically considered a combination of northern states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Haryana, but is often used by so-called liberals, as a snide at religious Hindus who hold the animal in reverence.

Such a manner of professing one’s disgruntlement caught the sight of Twitter users who as a result reacted:

It though remains to be seen whether the journalist revises her perception of the nation if the Congress and JD(S) combine indeed manage to form the government, at the cost of the BJP.
