DMK Prez Stalin questions PM Modi over Karnataka govt formation

Prime Minister Modi terms Karnataka victory as extraordinary, thanks the citizens of the state

#09:45 AM: Congress holds a protest at Mahatma Gandhi's statue in Vidhan Soudha, against BS Yeddyurappa's swearing-in as CM of #Karnataka.

Ibobi Singh said, "If BJP is given chance in Karnataka by virtue of being the single largest party, Congress in Manipur must also get the chance to form the government".

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.

JD (S) leader H.D. Kumaraswamy on Thursday said the Narendra Modi government wants to demolish democracy in the country and accused the Centre of using agencies like the Enforcement Directorate to threaten MLAs of the Congress-JD (S) combine in Karnataka. We will have to wait and see who among the members will be chosen into the Ministers' cabinet. Along with one independent MLA, the BJP has staked the claim at forming the government. "I am not going to wait till 15 days, the time period Governor Vajubhai Vala gave, to prove majority in Assembly".

Meanwhile, the Congress-JD (S) leaders are vigorously raising objections against the Karnataka governor's decision.

Mining baron Anand Singh, the newly elected Congress legislator from Vijayanagara in Ballari, is suspected to have jumped back to the BJP camp, according to senior Congress leaders.

"Catfish" Host Nev Schulman Accused Of Sexual Misconduct
In 2014 Schulman revealed he'd punched a girl in the face while attending Sarah Lawrence college in 2006. A representative for Nev Schulman didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.

The new BJP government has 15 days to gather enough support to survive a vote in the legislature on its leadership.

Arguing for the Union of India, Attorney General K.K. Venugopal said: "we don't know what happened in exchanges between Governor and Yeddyurappa, or what he has said in his letter".

Governor Vajubhai Vala administered the oath of office and secrecy to Yeddyurappa at 9 a.m.at the Raj Bhavan amid tight security.

Interestingly in the high-stakes political drama that is now taking place in the state, Anand Singh did not show up to the legislative party meeting held in Bengaluru, triggering speculations that he may rejoin the BJP, reports the Indian Express.

Political jolt to Congress in Karnataka did not cast its shadow over its President as Rahul Gandhi today danced to the beat of Chhattisgarh's traditional folk dance.

Venugopal, who vehemently opposed the plea seeking a stay of the swearing in ceremony, argued that the top court can not question the governor's discretion to call a party to form a government.
