People had high expectation about the first BJP Government of South India- Karnataka. But the experiment failed to a great extent primarily due to the greed of its senior leader , poster boy i.e., former Chief Minister, Mr.Yeddyurappa and corrupt Reddy brothers. Though this time chances of BJP's getting a majority in the ensuing election is bleak, it may become again the single largest party in the absence of a viable alternative and may actually form the next Government. In that event, BJP leadership must see that their action does not go against the aspirations of common people.

People are just fed up with Congress, and parties like JDS, BSR, KJP and BJP because of corruption, inflation, non-development and inhuman attitude of these parties. And the Congress does not enjoy an edge because of the presence of BSP and its ELEPHANT symbol along with SDPI with its AUTO RICKSHAW symbol.
