The Congress won a thumping victory in Karnataka to wrest power after a seven year gap, crushing the BJP in a key election ahead of next year's Lok Sabha ballot. Congress activists celebrated wildly all across Karnataka as a vote count that began at 8 am showed that the party won 120 seats in the 225-member assembly -- seven more than the half-way mark.
