Who should form the Government in a hung Assembly Who should form the Government in a hung Assembly

Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala's decision to invite BJP, the single-largest party but short of majority to form government in Karnataka had a domino effect on Thursday.

Zeliang, who was addressing public gathering at Wokha Town and Longmisa Village as part of the campaign tour for the upcoming Lok Sabha bye-elections also made scathing attacks against the PDA government for the hypocritical acts practiced in just two months of being in power.

"The president had said "when no party or pre-election alliance of parties is in a clear majority, the Head of State has in India or elsewhere, given the first opportunity to the leader of the party or combination of parties that has won largest number of seats subject to the prime minister so appointed obtaining majority support on the floor of the House within a stipulated time. Based on recent developments, if BJP can be given chance to form govt, why not us?", OI Singh, Former Manipur CM, said".

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. 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".

"We will stake claim to form the government as we are the largest party", said Ibobi. In the Assembly elections held in March previous year, the Congress bagged 17 seats in the 40-member House, falling short of the majority figure by four seats (see chart). "We will go to the people and we will tell them how BJP is going against the Constitution".

"We will get the support of five more MLAs to prove the majority but we will not poach MLAs like BJP is now doing in Karnataka", he added.

The New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns also met with the former Hawks coach, before agreeing to terms with their new head coaches. While moving on from a coaching job is never easy, it did not take long for Budenholzer to find a new home.


Kavalekar added, "We emerged as the single largest party in the February 2017 polls with 17 MLAs and even today we continue to be the single largest party with 16 MLAs". "We request Her Excellency to follow big brother Karnataka Governor and invite the Congress to form the Goa government to rectify a wrong", he stressed.

Goa Congress chief Girish Chodankar said that the governors can't have two different set of rules.

The JD (S) leader said all parties other than BJP should join hands and fight it out together. However, the RJD is still the single largest party with 80 MLAs. Then why should we not be called to form government in Bihar?

"We will request the Bihar Governor to dismiss the state government and invite the RJD to form the government", he said.

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav took to Twitter to convey the same and also informed that the party would hold a Dharna on Friday.

Congress leader and AICC Secretary Dr A Chella Kumar, in-charge of Goa affairs, rushed to Panjim on Thursday to stake claim to form government. We were single largest party and had immediately met Guv after results were announced but we weren't invited to form govt. "The precedent is there to follow, right?" he tweeted.
