Karnataka effect: 'Single-largest' parties Congress, RJD want Goa, Bihar

Rahul Gandhi Reacts to Karnataka Verdict'BJP Defeating Democracy Mocking Constitution by Attempting to Form Government

As the Karnataka Governor's decision made way for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to form government in the state on grounds of being the single largest party, the Congress in Goa is attempting to steal a similar deal for itself from the situation.

Mr Yadav told newspersons here that he would meet state governor Satya Pal Malik demanding dissolution of the state assembly and giving his party an opportunity to form an alternative government as it was the single largest party in the state. In Karnataka, Governor invited BJP as they are the single largest party.

"I will meet Honourable Governor of Bihar along with MLAs as we are single largest party of Bihar", he said in a tweet.

Yadav was taking a cue from the Congress which today chose to stake claim to form government in Goa where it had emerged as the single largest party in the Assembly polls held past year. Addressing a press conference, he said, "We are not only single largest party but single largest block of pre-poll alliance in Bihar".

In Karnataka yesterday, the BJP was invited to form government as the largest party, though the Congress and Janata Dal Secular combine claimed a comfortable majority. Three Independents also went with the BJP.

In Goa, Congress Legislature Party chief Chandrakant Kavlekar said the party will stake claim tomorrow by submitting to Governor Mridula Sinha a formal letter containing signatures of all the 16 party MLAs. BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa took oath as the chief minister on Thursday morning, after the Supreme Court refused to stay his swearing-in following a late-night hearing, subject to further orders. Amit Shah has only one formula, horse-trading or sending agencies like CBI and ED behind MLAs of other parties.

On the time given to Yeddyurappa to prove majority, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader said, "How will BJP prove majority? The governor should invite us to form the government in Goa as per the precedent set by her Karnataka counterpart, said Kavlekar, the Leader of Opposition in the Goa Assembly".

Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala has given the BJP an unusual 15 days to prove its majority. The governor should have given us the right to form the government.

The Goa Congress said by the same count, it should be given power in the state. "Four governments in four years did not damage the BJP or Nitish Kumar, it harmed the people of Bihar.These politics developments will similarly affect the growth and development of Karnataka", Yadav.

While the Congress-JD-S alliance had the support of more than 112 MLAs, the BJP had only 104 MLAs, eight short of the required numbers to form the government.

Former Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh and former Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma have also sought appointments with the governors of their states on Friday.
