Bengaluru: Waving BJP flags and dancing to drum beats, hundreds of BJP workers across Karnataka celebrated on Tuesday as the saffron party was set to dethrone the Congress in the state.

Sweets and delicacies were distributed among boisterous party workers and supporters who gathered at the state BJP headquarters here and its offices across Karnataka, including those in Kalaburagi, Hubbali-Dharwad, Mangaluru and Shivamogga.

The BJP on Tuesday appeared headed for a simple majority in the Karnataka elections, with its candidates leading in 115 assembly seats, leaving the ruling Congress way behind.

Earlier in the day, BJP workers had gathered amid an air of anxiety as several poll surveys and exit polls had predicted a hung house with some giving an edge to the ruling Congress.
