Of the 222 constituencies where polling was held on May 12, the BJP won in 104 seats, while the Congress won in 78 and JD-S won in 38 seats, along with its ally Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), throwing up a hung assembly in the state.
The BJP is still eight short of the 112-halfway mark needed for a simple majority.
In a related development, the party's legislator from Rajajinagar in the city's northwest suburb told reporters that the Congress was "shameless" to extend support to the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) after its leaders, including party President Rahul Gandhi and state unit chief G. Parameshwara accused the regional party of being the 'B-team' of the BJP.
On Tuesday, the Congress had extended its unconditional support to the JD-S to form a government in the state.
