Karnataka developments trigger series of reactions in Goa, Bihar and Manipur

Karnataka results Congress RJD say they will stake claim to form governments in Goa Bihar

The Congress unit in Goa has extraordinarily sought an appointment with state Governor Mridula Sinha in order to stake claim to power in the state.Similarly, former Bihar deputy CM and leader of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Tejashwi Yadav has said he will meet Governor Satya Pal Malik and stake claim to form government in the state, now ruled by a Janata Dal (United) and Bharatiya Janata Party alliance.

Mumbai: With B.S. Yeddyurappa taking oath as Karnataka chief minister Thursday, the Congress has chose to meet Goa governor Mridula Sinha to learn why the same principle of inviting the single largest party can not be followed in her state. This reasoning - that the single-largest party be invited to form government - is now being used by the Congress and the RJD to advance their claims in Goa and Bihar respectively.

In the Assembly elections held in March previous year, the Congress had bagged 17 seats in the 40-member House, falling short of the majority figure by four seats.

Lalu Prasad Yadav's RJD had emerged as the single largest party in the 2015 Bihar assembly polls with 80 seats as against JDU's 70 seats. The Congress would parade its 16 MLAs at Raj Bhavan and seek an invite to form the government. Why two critieria for two states?

The Goa election threw up a hung verdict, with the Congress winning 17 in the 40-seat assembly and the BJP winning 13.

"We would be holding a one-day dharna tomorrow against the murder of democracy in Karnataka". Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik will meet Tejashwi at 1 pm on Friday. However, BJP clobbered up the support of 11 MLAs to add to its tally of 21 to form the government.

It seems the BJP's argument to justify its government in Karnataka has triggered a domino effect in other states too.

With Kumar's JD (U), which had 71 MLAs, joining hands with BJP, which was Bihar's main Opposition party at the time with 53 MLAs, a JD (U)-BJP government was sworn in the next day. "The governor should invite us to form the government in Goa as per the precedent set by her Karnataka counterpart", Kavlekar, the Leader of Opposition in the Goa Assembly, said.

When pointed out that the Congress needs support of at least 21 legislators to stake claim in Goa, he said that once the governor swears in the Congress chief minister, he will be able to prove his majority on the floor of the House. "We are in majority in Goa as well as Bihar". "The numbers will have to be proven on the floor of the House and we have that with us", Goa Congress leader said. "We should get the opportunity now", said Singh. "We have 16 legislators with us and with that strength we are the single largest party in the (Goa) Assembly".

Kavlekar said that in the absence of the chief minister in the state for the last two months, there is no governance in place. The Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), Goa Forward Party (GFP) and independents won three seats each, whereas the Nationalist Congress Party picked up one.
