New Delhi: Had the Congress formed an alliance with the JD(S) before the Karnataka Assembly election, the poll outcome would have been “very different”, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said today.
“Congratulations to the winners of Karnataka polls. Those who lost, fight back,” the TMC leader tweeted.
According to the latest trends, the BJP is leading in 106 constituencies, which is seven short of a simple majority in the Assembly.
“If Congress had gone into an alliance with JD(S), the results would have been different, very different,” Ms Banerjee tweeted.
