BJP should hold elections with ballot papers, says Uddhav Thackeray

He admitted that the Congress was not keen on any pre-poll pact with the BSP - be it Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh or Karnataka.

"Every survey showed Siddaramaiah as Karnataka's first choice but that did not get reflected in the results".

Congress spokesperson Mohan Prakash questioned the BJP's issues with with the old-fashioned ballot system. Uddhav pointed out that the BJP was losing bypolls but winning assembly elections.

"When so many people are asking for it, it will clear apprehensions (on the use of EVMs) once and for all", Uddhav Thackeray told reporters.

The Rajya Sabha MP added that instead of kingmaker, the JD (S) has emerged as the king, but it would be "unfortunate" if the single largest party (BJP) sits in opposition while a member of a smaller party becomes chief minister. "This is a victory for the EVM", he tweeted.

"We are a party with strategy and discipline which led us to victory", Danve said. "We just have one MLA in that state and can't do much", said Ambeth Rajan of BSP, which had tied up with JD (S).

"The Election Commission should conduct elections through ballot papers to remove doubts. The EC should think over this", Patil said. This means it will be a four-way fight with the Shiv Sena, BJP, Congress and local outfit Bahujan Vikas Aghadi (BVA) trying to make a cut in a contest that is very crucial for the BJP, because every contestant wants to beat it. At that time, the election commission had rejected the charge.

"Ground reports in Karnataka about Congress were good".

Demanding that all elections in future be held through ballot papers, Maharashtra NCP president Jayant Patil said there was a difference between what was in people's minds and the actual results. He also said, "The doubts about EVM are serious".
