Panaji: The Congress in Goa on Thursday demanded that Governor Mridula Sinha follow the footsteps of her Karnataka counterpart Vajubhai Vala and invite the Congress, which emerged as the single largest party after the 2017 Assembly elections, to form the government in the coastal state.

RJD's senior leader Raghuvansh Prasad Singh also said the Karnataka governor's decision to invite BJP to form the government was a mockery of democracy.

RJD leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav, at a press conference in Patna on Thursday said that he has asked Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik to dissolve the incumbent NDA administration with Nitish Kumar as its Chief Minister and invite the RJD to form the new government since it had the largest seat share in the state in 2015 Assembly polls.

RJD had emerged as a single largest party with 80 seats in 2015 assembly elections while JD (U) was second with 71 seats and Congress Party 27 seats.

"We are the single largest party in the 60-member Manipur Assembly".

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 previous year.

In a tweet, questioning as to how there can be different yardsticks for different states, the Congress has said the the BJP government must resign in Goa, Manipur, Meghalaya and Bihar as there "cannot be two different laws for two situations". Why two critieria for two states?

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. In protest, we would be holding a day-long dharna on Friday.

The governor will meet a delegation of 16 Congress MLAs at 12 noon Friday to hear out their memorandum of demands.

The alliance, however, did not last long as Chief Minister Nitish Kumar dumped the grand secular alliance and formed a government with the BJP in July 2017 on grounds that his Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav's name had figured in the FIR registered by CBI in connection with the Benami land deals. "Why (was) RJD was given just twi days time to form the government but BJP was given 15 days time to prove majority?" "Why the double standard? Why did the BJP come in through back door to form government with JD (U) in Bihar?" he asked.

Meghalaya Congress is also staking claim to forming the government by stating that they are the single largest party in the state. "We should get the opportunity now", said Singh.

Sources in the Kerala BJP unit, closely associated with electioneering, said the Yeddyurappa factor was critical to their consolidation in Karnataka. Congress has 27 MLAs in Bihar. At the same time, Congress-JD (S) found new supporters as Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu reached out to JD (S) supremo HD Deve Gowda and offered shelter to Congress, JD (S) MLAs in Vishakhapatnam or Vijayawada.
