The BJP washed away the Congress in all three coastal districts of Karnataka, winning 16 of the 19 seats here, and making a clean sweep of  Udupi district's five assembly constituencies,

In Dakshina Kannada, the saffron party won seven of its eight constituencies, defeating Congress by not less than 15,000 votes in all of them. In Uttara Kannada too the party created history by winning four of the six seats.

This is the first time the BJP has seen such success in all three districts. The party did very well surprisingly in the minority strongholds of Bhatkal, Bantwal, Mangaluru City North, Mangaluru City South, Belthangady, Byndoor and Kumta.

Modi wave was so strong that in Karwar constituency,  Roopali, a first -timer defeated two former MLAs, Congress candidate and sitting MLA, Sathish Sail and former Minister and JD(S) candidate, AnanthAsnotikar.  The only Congressmen, who succeeded in retaining their seats were UT Khader in Mangaluru, R V Deshpande in Haliyal and ShivaramHebbar in Yellapur.

Mr Rajesh Naik of Bantwal was the other giant killer defeating district in-charge Minister B. Ramanath Rai by a margin of 15,971 votes.
