Major political leaders expressed confidence of a big win, absolute majority and forming the government. 

Major political leaders expressed their take on Saturday's polls on Sunday morning-- the day after the elections.

They expressed confidence of a big win, absolute majority and forming the government. 

B S Yeddyurappa (BJP's chief ministerial candidate) is '100% confident of an absolute majority and forming a government while Janata Dal (Secular) chief H D Deve Gowda has adopted a 'wait and watch' stance, according to ANI.  Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has played 'cool cucumber' --asking party workers not to worry about exit polls and enjoy their well earned rest with their families. 

While one has to wait till May 15, the day of counting and announcement of results; to ascertain if the leaders' self-confidence is unfounded or valid, here's what they had to say on Sunday: 

B S Yeddyurappa said:

He (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) is in touch with me and BJP National President Amit Shah. Everybody is confident of winning with absolute majority. We are 100% sure of forming the government on May 17. 

BJP will bag more than 125-130 seats, Congress will not be able to cross 70 seats and JD(S) will not cross 24-25 seats. There is a silent and strong wave in favour of BJP and public anger against Siddaramaiah and Congress.

H D Deve Gowda told ANI:

I am not prepared to accept or reject anything, let's wait for May 15. We will get to know the reality

Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah tweeted:

Dear Congress party workers and supporters, don't worry about exit polls. You have all worked without a break for the elections. Enjoy your well-earned rest with your families. We shall meet again on May 15. The blessings of elders and the wishes of youngsters always augur well for us.
