SRINAGAR: Reacting to the Karnataka elections where BJP has emerged as largest party till now, former chief minister Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said “Et tu Karnataka,” Similar words were uttered by Julius Caesar in Shakespeare’s sublime tragedy when Caesar’s best friend Brutus stabbed him.  On his widely followed twitter handle, Omar wrote: “Et tu Karnataka.” This was perhaps the shortest message that Omar ever used on his twitter, his main tool to communicate with the people.
 
Et tu, is a Latin sentence which means “Even You”. Et tu, is mostly used to express surprise and dismay at the treachery of a supposed friend. Till now, BJP headed for a simple majority in the Karnataka Assembly, with its candidates leading in 115 constituencies, leaving the ruling Congress way behind, according to the latest trends available for 220 of the state’s 222 seats where polling was held.
