Cong meet Governor, submit list of 117 MLAs

Outgoing Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah and JD president HD Kumaraswamy address media after a meeting with governor Rudabhai Vala in Bengaluru

"I want to know whether this is black or white money", he told a press conference. Former AG Mukul Rohatgi who appeared for the BJP questioned the urgency of the matter to hear it at midnight. The JD (S) and Congress had met the governor at the Raj Bhavan on Wednesday evening and Vala had assured he will consult legal experts before making a decision. Such is the irony that HD Kumaraswamyof the Janata Dal (Secular) that finished third, winning only 37 seats with a vote share of 18.4%, is now a frontrunner to head the next government. We are not in the habit of practising horsetrading.

Union minister Prakash Javadekar vehemently rejected the allegations of horse trading in Karnataka today, saying it was what the Congress and its new ally JD (S) are "famous for".

Mayawati also tied up with Akhilesh Yadav's Samajwadi Party and backed its candidate in Gorakhpur Lok Sabha by-election in which they managed to defeat the BJP in its chief minister Yogi Adityanath's home turf.

According to media reports, while all the newly-elected Congress MLAs were called in for a meeting, the Congress couldn't get in touch with three of its legislators - Rajshekhar Patil, B Nagendra and Anand Singh.

"No party has a majority.Congress has made a decision to support the JD (S)", said outgoing CM and Congress leader Siddaramaiah from Bengaluru. It has emerged the single largest party, but has fallen short of majority in the 224-member state assembly. We will claim to form the government. The letter of the Governor clearly establishes that he believes that the BJP and BS Yeddyurappa do not have the requisite majority numbers. In Hyderabad Karnataka too, the BJP improved its tally from 10 to 15, though the Congress still retained a lead with 21 out of 40 seats. He said the Congress had extended unconditional support to the JD-S for forming the government and "we will provide a stable rule for full five years". Congress MLAs were moved to Eagleton Golf Resort on the outskirts of Bengauru.

Party general secretary Ashok Gehlot said that the decision was a "murder of democracy" and has been taken "under pressure from the BJP leadership". Thus the two Telugu leaders played a key role in the formation of Congress JDS alliance. "It is biggest license to poaching if Governor gives 15 days to the BJP to prove majority", he said. In Goa, the Governor did not invite the single largest party, the Congress, but the post-poll alliance of the BJP and the Goa Forward Party and the MGP. A Governor will be a Badshah if his actions can't be challenged.
