Karnataka effect: Now Goa Congress stakes claim to form govt

"On the basis of the rule followed in Karnataka, Congress, being the single-largest party, should be re-invited to form government in Goa, Meghalaya and Manipur", said Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala. The Independents also won 3 in 40-member Assembly.

BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain and other party workers celebrate BS Yeddyurappa's oath-taking as Karnataka chief minister at the BJP office in Patna on Thursday.

The Congress Goa in-charge Chella Kumar will leave for Goa today. In Bihar, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said his party will also request the Bihar Governor to dissolve the state Assembly and like in Karnataka, invite the single largest party, which in the state is his party. The party is also planning to parade its 17 MLAs at the governor house, according to a source.

With the BJP winning 104 seats in 224-assembly in the Karnataka elections, Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala invited its legislative party leader BS Yeddyurappa to form the government and prove majority within 15 days. If they have allowed the single-largest party to come to power in Karnataka, then they should allow that here as well. Then why should we not be called to form government in Bihar?

The Congress is giving an "opportunity to Goa governor to rectify the mistake which she did last year", Kavelkar said.

The Congress has also staked its claim to forming the government in Manipur on Thursday. However, the BJP, with 21 seats, joined hands with National People's Party (four seats), Naga People's Front (four seats) and the Lok Janshakti Party (one seat) to form the first BJP government in the state.

The Karnataka Governor's decision to invite BJP to form government in the state has caused an uproar among the opposition parties who were not invited to form government in their respective states despite being the single largest party.

The reaction on social media told you just how good a catch it was, with many saying that De Villiers was not from this planet. He came into the running like a cheetah, hurled himself into the air like gravity doesn't exist and stopped a potential six.

The RJD holds 80 seats in the 243-seat Bihar Assembly, whereas the ruling coalition parties Janata Dal (United) and the BJP hold 70 seats and 53 seats each respectively, totalling up to 123 seats.

Meanwhile, Congress has issued a notice to all Pradesh Congress Committees, leaders and party workers to organise state-wide protests at state capital and district headquarters against the Karnataka Governor's decision to invite BJP to form government in the state. "The numbers will have to be proven on the floor of the House and we have that with us", he said.

"How will the BJP prove majority [in Karnataka]?"

The Congress, which emerged as the single largest party in the Goa Assembly election with 17 seats, had approached the apex court. The Commission recommends that in case of no pre-poll alliance among parties, the Governor should give next preference to the single largest party. He, however, refused to name the political party whose support Congress will be seeking. In July 2017, JD (U) leader Nitish Kumar broke the alliance and tied up with the BJP to continue as chief minister.

"The Congress will be able to provide a stable government in Goa", the CLP leader added.

"I will meet the Governor along with our MLAs as we are the single largest party in Bihar", tweeted Yadav.
