Now, RJD to stake claim to form govt in Bihar

The argument was presented by BJP national spokesperson and former Union minister Syed Shahnawaz Hussain here on Thursday during a news meet in which he accused the Congress of trying to make a backdoor entry into the Karnataka government after being rejected by the people of the state. "Ailing Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who is in US for last two months for medical treatment, is not able to lead the State", he said. The Congress had then accused Goa Governor Mridula Sinha of acting in favour of the BJP.

Tejashwi Yadav, son of Lalu Prasad and the leader of the opposition RJD in the Bihar assembly, too said he sought an appointment with the governor Satyapal Malik on Friday before whom "we wish to submit that there can not be double standards. If necessary Congress can parade its MLAs also at Governor house", news agency ANI said quoting sources. "Tomorrow at 1 PM will meet Bihar Governor", Tejashwi Yadav, RJD leader and former deputy chief minister wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

"The governments in Goa, Manipur and Meghalaya should resign and the single-largest parties in these states be invited to form the respective governments and prove their majority". Tejashwi, son of Lalu Prasad, said he has sought an appointment with the Governor Satyapal Malik today before whom "we wish to submit that there can not be double standards".

The Karnataka Governor's decision to invite the BJP to form the government on the ground that it emerged as the single-largest party is set to have a ripple effect. "So we will meet her and tell her that", Chodankar added.

But if all alternatives fail and no party or group is able to form a popular government, the Governor's only option is to recommend President's rule citing the "failure of the constitutional machinery" in the State.

During Manipur assembly elections, the Congress was three short of the majority mark with 28 seats in the 60-seat assembly. In the Manipur poll held past year, the Congress had won 28 seats in the 60-member House and the BJP 21.

In Karnataka, BJP's B.S. Yeddyurappa was sworn in as Chief Minister by Governor Vala, despite protests from the Congress and Janata Dal-Secular, which formed a post-poll coalition to bid for power. "The numbers will have to be proven on the floor of the House and we have that with us", he said.

The Governor, however, invited the BJP to form the government and has given it 15 days to prove its majority. Congress emerged as the single largest party in Goa in the last elections with 17 seats in a House of 40. But later, JD (U) allied with BJP, having 53 seats, to form government with the help of smaller parties like LJP, RLSP and Independents. The Commission recommends that in case of no pre-poll alliance among parties, the Governor should give next preference to the single largest party.

In Nagaland, Leader of NPF Legislature Party, TR Zeliang also commented on the turn of events after the recently held Karnataka Assembly elections while wondering as to how different states in India could follow different Constitution of the same country. While there are also reports that Congress and JD (S) may move to apex court against BJP for giving bribe to their MLAs.
