Congress shepherds MLAs to 5-star resort amid charges of horse-trading

Congress president Rahul Gandhi said the BJP’s irrational insistence” that it will form a government in Karnataka despite the numbers was “a mockery of our Constitution”

But nearly on cue, the Congress high command in New Delhi reacted swiftly to move an urgent petition seeking a hearing in the night to try and prevent the swearing-in. A hearing, with a bench of three judges, led by Justice A K Misra has been scheduled for Friday.

By hook or by crook? Former attorney general Mukul Rohatgi was assumed to be representing BS Yeddyurappa.

Opposition parties today accused the BJP of "murder of democracy" and "trampling" the Constitution, with the Congress demanding that Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala be recalled as it dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah to prove BJP's majority in the state tomorrow itself. Under normal circumstances, the Speaker is first elected before the beginning of an Assembly session. He added that the party has Kerala and two other options (which he did not name), if they do decide to leave the state.

But Singhvi thereafter referred to the Rameshwar Prasad case (2006) - though he did not refer to the SR Bommai judgement (1994).

The apex court said that the swearing-in is subject to the final outcome of the matter before it.

Evolution of mobile phones
Like the flip phone, it was also comprised of two parts but they came together and apart by sliding the parts on a rail. Given the fast pace of growth, the future is bound to hold even many more implications for mobile phone users.

In such a situation, the majority will automatically be proved in the Assembly and Yeddyurappa would have to resign from his post as Chief Minister.

The bench observed that it was preposterous to argue that the legislators, before they take oath, were not amenable to anti-defection law and meant an open invitation to horse-trading.

The application also mentions that the All India Anglo Indian Association has written to the Governor asking that the Constitutional rights of Anglo-Indians may not be exploited for political purposes and that any nomination may be made only after the floor test.

Almost after 15 months of the election, Congress has announced that it will stake claim to form the government in Goa since the party too had emerged as the single largest party during the Assembly polls in 2017. But it wasn't available for the court to inspect and the court realised that respondent BS Yeddyurappa wasn't represented in the court. While the BJP's Guttedar Subhash Rukmayya in Aland beat incumbent MLA B.R. Patil, who had shifted from the Karnataka Janata Party to the Congress, by 695 votes, Kungol, Pavagada and Hirekurur were all won by Congress candidates on margins lower than 634 votes.
