Congress Murdered Democracy By Making Opportunist Offer To JDS: Amit Shah

For the past two days, Gowda has been sitting at home with Congress leaders of all hues, from Sonia Gandhi to mid-level state leaders pampering him with an irresistible offer: Accept Congress' support to make his son HD Kumaraswamy chief minister of Karnataka.

Meanwhile, Mr. Kumaraswamy, commenting on the party performance, said: "I'm not very happy with the results though I accept people's mandate". The BJP now rules 22 states, either by itself or as part of an alliance.

BJP leaders have also taken Governor appointment stating that they will form the government as they have secured highest seats.

The Congress has also demanded the immediate removal of the governor of Karnataka.

The court observed that it was "preposterous" to argue that before MLAs take oath they were not amenable to anti-defection law. "We request the learned Attorney General and/or respondent no. 3 to produce these letters on the next date of hearing", the court said in its order. So, even if the BJP, which is in power at the Centre and has a politically smart governor Vajubhai Vala in Karnataka, the Party will not be able to see itself being invited to form the government.

Soon after, the Congress announced that it would support the JD (S), taking their total seat share to 117. In case of a hung assembly, governor has to call all the parties staking claim to prove their majority in the House.

Earlier on Wednesday night, Karnataka Governor Vaijubhai Vala had invited the BJP leader to form the government in the state on the basis of him being the leader of the single-largest party, provoking an immediate and angry reaction from the Congress, which challenged the decision in the Supreme Court.

Yeddyurappa won the Shikaripura seat by a margin of over 35,000 votes while Kumaraswamy won convincingly in both Channapatna and Ramanagara.

B S Yeddyurappa has been sworn in as the Chief Minister of Karnataka.

Constitutional expert Subhash Kashyap told ANI that Governor has "complete power" to appoint the Chief Minister.

BS Yeddyurappa took the oath as the chief minister of Karnataka today with 104 Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLA), still eight seats short of the 112 that he needs to have a majority.

It seems that Jethmalani is not in support of the opposition parties, but has objections with the governor's decision, which he deems as being unconstitutional. I am confident they will vote according to their conscience. JD (S) and Congress leaders have staged protests across the state.

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. Would the BJP have succeeded in getting Governor's invitation to form government in Goa or Manipur if the central government was in the hands of the Congress or some other party or coalition?

The BJP had the largest number of seats, with 104 out of 222. The contrasting situations of 2004 and May 2018 have one big difference: Back then, the Congress with 65 seats (losing power and trailling BJP) made a post-poll alliance with JD (S), which had 58 seats, but kept the chief minister's post and offered the deputy chief minister's post to Siddaramaiah.
