  • Now, RJD to stake claim to form govt in Bihar

Meanwhile, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said at a press conference that party MLAs would meet Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik at 1 pm on Friday, ANI reported.

"I would like to ask BJP and JD (U) chief Nitish Kumar whether they had made a mistake in Bihar by not inviting single largest party to form the government", Mr. Yadav added.

"If in Karnataka the single largest party got a chance to form government, then the governments in Goa, Bihar, Manipur and Meghalaya should resign and make way for the single largest party", said Randeep Surjewala of the Congress. However, the government invited BJP's Yeddyurappa and asked him to prove majority on the floor of the house.

Goa Congress Legislature Party chief Chandrakant Kavlekar said the party would stake claim on Friday by submitting to Governor Mridula Sinha a formal letter containing signatures of all 16 party MLAs.

"In 2017, we won 17 seats & were the single largest party and continue to be but Governor chose to invite the BJP which had 13 seats". This is gundagardi of BJP; it will be called as a black day in democracy if BJP is allowed to form the government in Karnataka.

Congress is now likely to stake claim to form the government in the state of Goa. "The governor should invite us to form the government in Goa as per the precedent set by her Karnataka counterpart".

In Goa's 2017 assembly election, Congress was the single-largest party with 21 seats in the 40-seat assembly, however, it was the BJP through a post-poll alliance that ended up forming the government, In Bihar, the RJD was the single-largest party with 80 seats in the 243-seat assembly in the 2015 assembly election, but it ended up in the opposition.

The Congress unit in Goa has extraordinarily sought an appointment with state Governor Mridula Sinha in order to stake claim to power in the state. However, he did not specify how the party would muster a majority.

"We have 16 legislators with us and with that strength we are the single largest party in the (Goa) Assembly".

In Karnataka yesterday, the BJP was invited to form government as the largest party, though the Congress and Janata Dal Secular combine claimed a comfortable majority.

The BJP-led government in Goa is headed by Manohar Parrikar, who is now undergoing treatment in the USA for his pancreatic ailment. Kavlekar said in the absence of the chief minister, there was no proper government in the state. The current BJP-led coalition government was formed after two days of drama in March 2017, despite the Congress' attempt to stitch together a coalition.

In the Karnataka elections, the BJP emerged as the single-largest party with 104 of the 222 seats, a handful short of the halfway mark. This has come 15 months after the Goa Assembly Elections 2018. JD (U) won 71 seats, while the BJP won 53.

The court gave four days to Manohar Parrikar to prove his majority.
