Congress spokesman Manish Tiwari:

“The Congress lost 21 seats [in Karnataka] by less than 3,000 votes: two seats by less than 100 votes, six by less than 1,000 votes, another half-a-dozIen Assembly segments by 2,000 votes and seven constituencies by 3,000 votes. In fact, the party lost Kumta by just 20 votes and the former Chief Minister Dharam Singh was defeated in Jevargi by a margin of 70 votes.”
