Congress Cries Foul, Says Karnataka Governor Inviting Yeddyurappa Akin to Murdering Democracy


While Congress has said that it would form an unconditional alliance with the JD (S), even nominating HD Kumaraswamy as the chief minister, the BJP has requested an eight-day time to prove majority.

As the state Assembly polls gave a fractured verdict, the JD (S) and Congress have come together and petitioned Governor Vajubhai Vala to allow them to form its government.

He said in the case of Karnataka, it was unheard of a Chief Minister who doesn't have a majority was given 15 days to conduct floor test.

If Yeddyurappa is unable to prove his majority, he can take his place, for a second time, among chief ministers who had to resign within a month of being sworn in.

The Congress has also left the CM's post to the JD (S).

Asked about the possibility of BJP breaking his MLA's Kumaraswamy showed confidence in his MLA's and threatened the BJP that he would break twice the number of MLA's from the BJP.

In the run-up to the elections, while the JD (S) had accused the Congress of being "more risky than the BJP", the Congress had said HD Deve Gowda's party was working as "BJP's B team".

If he plays well then Chelsea will have a real chance. "Yes, looking back at last season the campaign went so well, like what you're seeing with Man City now", he added.

Both sides rushed to meet Vala and staked claim to power. Thus the two Telugu leaders played a key role in the formation of Congress JDS alliance.

PM Modi thanked the people of Karnataka and assured them that the BJP will leave no stone unturned in charting the development journey of the state.

Regional forces like the Trinamool Congress, NCP, DMK and the Left said the Congress should read the writing on the wall and join hands with state parties if it was serious about taking on the BJP. Hitting back, Shah said democracy was murdered the moment "desperate" Congress made an "opportunist" offer to the JD (S) to form the government in the state for "petty political gains".

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra considered the submission of Jethmalani seeking urgent hearing and said that a three-judge special bench, which had heard petitions filed by the Congress party and the Janata Dal (Secular) in the early hours, would re-assemble tomorrow. Mayawati's BSP, a JD (S) ally, and Karnataka Pragnyavantha Janatha Party (KPJP) have won one seat each. He argued that the BJP couldn't claim to have majority unless it triggered defections from the Congress and the JD (S).

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist party ended Congress party rule in a key southern state on Thursday, but its poll victory was marred by questions over who has the right to form the government.

He slammed the Congress-JD (S) alliance as "unholy" and said they were out to grab power even though the people had "rejected them outright". He also reiterated that he should be invited to form government as the alliance has a clear majority. BJP is hungry for forming government, added Kumaraswamy.
