The candidates fielded by the Congress Party who have brought victory were: Allam Veerabhadrappa, Rizwan Arshad, Veena Achchayya and R B Timmapur.

The Karnataka MLC Poll results demonstrated the strength of Congress party in the state particularly in the seven graduates and teachers’ constituencies. With this win the strength of Congress has reached from 21 to 31.
Though Congress has won four of the seven seats, it cannot yet claim the Chairperson’s or the Deputy Chairman’s seat of Karanataka Legislative Council. The complete result will be declared on the 13th of June (Monday) 2016. These posts are currently held by BJP and JDS representatives. The Chairperson post belongs to D.H. Shankaramurthy of BJP and Maritibbe Gowda of JDS..
Previously, the Congress party held only one seat in the Teachers’ Council. The seven seats till now were majorly divided among BJP and JDS; therefore, Congress party considers this as a grand come back where it has thrashed two powerful parties of the state.
To claim the Chairman’s and Deputy Chairman’s post Congress needs to claim three seats of teachers’ constituencies and then three of the nominated members or get the support of the Independent candidates, then the strength of the party will go up for sure. Consequently, BJP, the party in strength will lose its seats and may end up in to reaching 23 to 24 seats. The Legislative Council of Karnataka has a total of 75 seats
On the other hand, the partnership between BJP and JDS can take the Congress Party into troublesome situations. Therefore, if JDS and BJP alliance work out to be successful, then there is every chance of gaining 35 seats by the two parties together. The Congress party therefore will not be able to get the two key position of the Legislative Council of the State. In that case, the role of Independent candidates and nominated members will be significant.
