#Throwback: Congress party and its supporters before and after BJP appeared set to win Karnataka

Another election and again, the Bharatiya Janata Party under the leadership of its President Amit Shah with B.S. Yeddyurappa as its Chief Ministerial candidate and Narendra Modi’s campaign, the party is all set to form its government in Karnataka.

There were indications right from the beginning that the voters were in favour of BJP, however, some Congress supporters were overconfident of their party’s victory, much like the manner in which Rahul Gandhi asserted that he will be the Prime Minister should Congress emerge as the single largest party next year.

Prakash Raj had already announced that there was no way the BJP could win the Karnataka Assembly elections.


Rajdeep Sardesai conceded that he was preparing to wipe the egg of his face.


As this tweet indicates, we can expect an apology from him sometime during the day.


Some are still back to peddling a narrative that has lost favour with everyone, even their friends in the media.


Some supporters also believed that the momentum was with the Congress.


The Karnataka Assembly Elections are done and dusted but Congress President Rahul Gandhi hasn’t gotten there yet but good news for his supporters, he is getting there.


And the spokesperson of the Congress party hugely overestimated their performance in the state as well.


It will be interesting to see the manner in which the Congress party shifts the entire blame for its defeat on Siddaramaiah and the state unit since it’s a foregone conclusion that Rahul Gandhi cannot be held accountable under any circumstances.
