Mysuru, May 20:- Various private institutions released the exit poll prediction for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on Sunday. Most exit polls predicted that the Congress will face a major setback in Mysuru region.
In more than 10 exit poll predictions, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) seems to have a clear upper hand in Karnataka. As Vokkaliga votes are a majority in Mysuru-Kodagu region, Congress is likely to be pushed to the corner. It is also said that the setback for Congress will mean jolt to former chief minister Siddramaiah who has a strong say in this region.
As both Lingayat and Dalit voters are in favour of BJP, Congress is unlikely to make it count in Chamarajanagar as well. (KR/KS)
