Governor Vajubhai Vala holds key to power in Karnataka

Governor Vajubhai Vala holds key to power in Karnataka

According to an ANI report, JD (S)' MLAs Raja Venkatappa Nayaka and Venkata Rao Nadagouda are missing from the JD (S) legislative party meeting which is going on in a hotel in Bengaluru.

The BJP, which appeared confident of returning to power in its only southern bastion, emerged as the single largest party but failed to cross the half-way mark in the 224-member Assembly where two constituencies didn't vote on Saturday.

He said that the letter of invitation by the governor "clearly establishes" that even the governor does not believe that Yeddyurrappa has a majority. "If I were Yeddyurappa, I will not take oath until the hearing at 10.30 am on Friday", he added.

"Yedyurappa's letter to the Governor will seal his fate".

Outgoing Chief Minister Siddaramaiah turned "emotional" at a meeting of the party's new legislators today while speaking on Congress' defeat in the assembly polls even as senior leaders blamed him for the result, party sources said.

Former AG Mukul Rohatgi who appeared for the BJP questioned the urgency of the matter to hear it at midnight. Another leader, NA Harris said, "We have to protect the verdict of the people". As per results, we're doing everything to keep BJP out of power. We don't have to stoop down to their level.

Gujarat BJP chief Jitu Vaghani, after counting of votes of Karnataka Assembly polls on Tuesday were concluded, said that the results indicated that Congress president Rahul Gandhi should stop daydreaming of becoming prime minister. Every day, there is a lot of pressure. But, it not so easy because two parties have the necessary numbers. Four JDS and three Congress MLAs had defected and the BJP successfully staked claim to form a government in the state.

The Congress spokesperson, Randeep Surjewala, at a late night press conference, called the decision to invite Yeddyurappa "immoral, illegal, and unconstitutional". They said come to us & we'll give a ministry to you. In Bihar Lalu Yadav and the Rashtriyan Janata Dal are reported to have gained considerable ground over the past one year since Chief Minister Nitish Kumar overturned the peoples mandate.

The dramatic turn of events that saw BJP's jubilations swinging up and down throughout the day spoiled its hopes to form its own Government in Karntaka - its gateway to the south.

Reacting to the development, the Congress claimed that the governor did not follow the rule book while inviting the BJP to form the government. Congress has extended its support, we have accepted it.

Irrespective of these arguments, the fact remains that all such gubernatorial decisions, Including the crucial one to be taken by the Karnataka governor, can be challenged in court. Can a person who is there to save constitution, destroy it too?

Several leaders from both the Congress and the JD (S) told reporters that they have been offered a huge amount of cash by the BJP to switch sides. When Mr Modi talks about eradicating black money from the country, is his party giving this money in black or white? "The JD (S)-Congress combine has 116 MLAs.the BJP is trying to misuse its power being at the Centre and form its government through horse-trading", PTI quoted him saying.

The JD (S) may insist on not tying up with the BJP but their record shows they are master opportunists ever willing to shift to greener pastures.

- Leaders of the BJP and the Congress-JD (S) alliance met the Governor of Karnataka and sought to form the government. The foremost strategy was to strike a chord with it new ally the Janta Dal (Secular).
