  • Karnataka Governor invites Yeddyurappa to form government in the state

The senior Congress leader said the BJP has done nothing. The state had seen this on several occasions in the past wherein elected members of a party are huddled up in plush resorts to protect them from poaching by other parties. They have rejected the Congress party. In effect, it comes to mean that the ruling party (or the main party in the case of coalition) running the central government tries to find a constitutional and legal justification to grab power in a state even if it does not have a clear majority in the Assembly.

"The BJP has tried to contact all our legislators", said Karnataka JD (S) chief H.D.Kumaraswamy, adding that if the BJP started "horse-trading", then the JD (S) would stoop to their level and pocket twice the number from the opponent's camp. And if that does not happen and it becomes a three-way election, it is advantage Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) again.

Brokers said investor sentiment was subdued following uncertainty over government formation in Karnataka, which has thrown up a hung verdict. He cited the instances of Goa and Manipur where the Congress had emerged as the single largest party sans majority but post-alliances were invited to form governments.

However, the final decision on the matter will be taken by the the Karnataka Governor, Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala. Union minister Prakash Javadekar promptly dismissed the JD-S charge, calling it "imaginary". If rumours are to be believed, it is already underway with BJP trying to coax half a dozen Lingayat MLAs from both Congress and JD (S) to liaise with them. However, at the time of going to press, there has been no official communication from the Governor's office. "Karnataka government wants to gain an edge by listening to what we are discussing with our leaders", she said. According to sources, a handful of JD (S) MLAs are on the verge of shifting their allegiance to the BJP.

No doubt, the Karnataka defeat calls for a new prime ministerial face from Congress for the Lok Sabha Elections. As per results, we're doing everything to keep BJP out of power.

The BJP bagged 104 seats, a gain of 64, while the Congress notched 78, a loss of 44 seats, though its vote share was almost two percentage points more than the BJP.

After the Congress declared its support to JD (S), Kumaraswamy wrote to the governor saying that he had accepted the offer to be the chief minister. It is also leaning on the Sarkaria Commission (which dwelled on Centre-State relations) which says that the single largest party should be invited to form the government.

NCP's Tariq Anwar, noting that the Congress got more votes than the BJP in Karnataka, said, "This is not the defeat of the Congress or the leadership".
