Chief Minister Siddaramaiah narrowly escaped from the
ignonomy of getting defeated from both the constituencies he contested. He managed to win from Badamiagainst Sriramulu by a wafer-thin margin (1600 votes), he lost to G T Deve Gowda of the Janata Dal (Secular) in Chamundeshwari constituency by a big margin—30,000 votes..

The face- saver for the Congress party was the victory of Home Minister R Ramalinga Reddy, Energy Minister D K Shivakumar, Major Industries Minister R V Deshpande, Municipal Administration Minister EshwarKhandre, Urban Development Minister R RoshanBaig, Food and Civil Supplies Minister U T Khader, Primary and Secondary Education Minister TanvirSait, Water Resources Minister M B Patil, Information Technology and Biotechnology Minister PriyankKharge, Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister H K Patil, Housing Minister A Krishnappa, Agriculture Minister Krishna Byregowda, Small Scale Industries Minister Ramesh Jarkoholi and Health and Family Welfare Minister K R Ramesh Kumar.
