"In this context, the BJP's victory is unbelievable".

Mumbai: The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has expressed doubts over the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) victory in the Karnataka assembly elections in which it emerged as the single-largest party. "If you (BJP) trust yourself, hold elections through ballot papers once", Uddhav said, reacting to the election results. Before that, party leadership was in talks with Janata Dal for an alliance of the party.

As per early trends, BJP is leading in 27 seats and has won 77.The Congress is leading in 32 seats and has won 46, while the JD (S) has won 23 and is leading in 14 seats.

At present, the majority mark is 112 as results will be declared for only 222 seats.

He claimed that the image of the BJP and its chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa was "not good" because of the allegations of corruption.

A total of 2,654 candidates, including 216 women candidates were in the fray for the Assembly Elections this year. While the BJP is contesting in all 224 seats, the Congress put up candidates in 222 and the JDS in 201 seats. There had been some reports on the day of voting, that the EVM at the Hebbal Constituency, was either faulty or tampered with, as even as people pushed any button, the vote wen to BJP.

Elections come and go, he added when asked about the Karnataka elections being the first major poll battle after Rahul Gandhi became Congress president.

Alluding to the alleged misuse of EVMs by the BJP, Uddhav said: "If the BJP is so confident about winning polls, it should once hold the polls using ballot papers so as to remove the doubts in the minds of the people". While the NCP will contest the Bhandara-Gondia seat, the Congress will fight the Palghar seat.
