The Congress has 78 MLAs in the new Assembly, which is yet to be formally constituted. Other senior lawyers like Aryama Sundaram and Sanjay Hegde opined that the JD (S)-Congess post-poll alliance should be invited first by the Karnataka governor. This is the kind of politics JD-S and Congress do. On arriving at the Congress party headquarters for attending the lawmakers' meeting, Siddaramaiah said, "All the Congress MLAs are intact". They tried to convince him that trying to stop the BJP from getting power was the best way to prove the JD (S)'s secular credentials and shed its 2006 baggage when Kumaraswamy joined hands with the BJP. Deve Gowda reportedly told senior Opposition leaders that he was on board.
"This could be a tricky scenario for the Congress-JDS combo". By quickly offering the crown to kingmaker Kumaraswamy, the Congress party has demonstrated its willingness to get off the high horse and facilitate any coalition that can challenge the BJP. This is one challenge where the regional parties will be more than eager to be led by the Congress.
The Congress and the JD-S, who formed a hurriedly stitched post-poll alliance after a hung assembly verdict to claim a majority of 116 members in the new assembly, called the Governor's decision "unconstitutional". Mayawati, in fact, addressed four rallies jointly with JD (S) leaders during the campaign. MLA R Shankar who had contested as an Independent candidate has officialy given his support to BJP, thus increasing BJP's tally to 105.
"In a case like this where the opposite side is showing 117 MLAs support, how will you have 112?", Justice Sikri asked Venugopal. While it has a shot at real power, its revenge on old baiter Siddaramaiah, the outgoing Congress chief minister, is complete. The JD-S won nine.
"They (BJP) are poaching our MLAs, and we know that". This is a state in which the party hurled everything but the kitchen sink at the BJP, yet still finds itself at the mercy of a smaller coalition ally. The newly minted SP-BSP alliance will face further tests and NCP has made it clear it will work with Congress given the ground situation in Maharashtra.
On Wednesday morning, BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa met the Governor, and he remains upbeat about BJP's chances to form the government. BJP leaders across the state said they were confident of crossing the half way mark. If the Congress is outwitted by the BJP, the loss will leave many party insiders asking how its finances will be bailed out before 2019. "We will jointly go to meet Governor after 5.30 PM today". Similarly, what is our strategy with Mamata Banerjee, Sharad Pawar? Union ministers gave arguments supporting them. "We are going by the rule book and we will form the government", Javadekar said. He returned to take the seat in 2007 and 2012.
He said, "The Congress should have allied with the JD (S)".
"The bitter enemies want to come together just for a marriage of convenience". As the results show, BJP's vote share has dropped by some seven percentage points since the 2014 general elections.
He said that the national party is in a "hurry" to form the government in Karnataka despite falling short of numbers, and resorting to "horsetrading" by trying to lure his party MLAs with money.
