Senior Karnataka Bharatiya Janata Party leader KS Eshwarappa on Wednesday said that their party is in touch with some Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) MLAs as they hope to stitch together a majority to form the government in the state.


"Many JD (S) and Congress MLAs are angry with the Congress and JDs coming together to form government, they will come with BJP. We have support of some Congress and JD(S) MLAs," Eshwarappa said.


Talking to ANI, Eshwarappa said, "There is no doubt we will form govt, 100 percent we'll do that. Wait and watch. Results came out only yesterday. It has been only a day. See what can happen in Karnataka in a day."


Eshwarappa bagged the Shivamogga seat with a tremendous margin in the Karnataka Assembly elections.He secured 1,04,027 votes, defeating Congress' K.B. Prasanna Kumar by a margin of 46,107.

It depends on development in political parties. As of now, we aren't approaching any individuals but politics is art of possibility," Bommai told reporters.
