Yeddyurappa sworn in as Karnataka chief minister

Check Latest Updates

In the state of Goa, Governor Mridula Sinha did not invite the Congress, which was the single largest party, to rule; she allowed the BJP to form government.

Amit Shah hit back at the Congress over its "murder of democracy" accusation.

The apex court asked if can it restrain the governor from inviting a party to form the government, to which senior lawyer and Congress leader A M Singhvi said the Supreme Court had done so in the past.

Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, in a tweet, took shot at Rahul Gandhi saying he played the ultimate "Dalit" card to attract voters but even that failed to give Congress a clear majority. They have to be guided by the President, who is advised by the council of ministers.

There will now nearly certainly be a bidding war, which could lead to a holiday for MLAs who, as often happens in state polls, may be virtually locked up in comfortable holiday locations (see below) without mobile and internet connections to keep them away from rival parties. And the Governor has to just parrot that justification.

The letters are expected to communicate to the governor how Yeddyurappa was convinced that he had the support of the majority of members of the state assembly.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader BS Yeddyurappa will take oath as Karnataka Chief Minister today morning after the Supreme Court in a late night-early morning hearing on Thursday declined to order a stay on his swearing-in ceremony. While the Congress-JD (S) alliance, which has a majority, is waiting for an invitation!

Meghan Markle's sister injured in auto crash after 'confrontation' with paparazzi
She recently detailed her plans for a tell-all book about Markle potentially titled " The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister ". Samantha was in the passenger seat and he alleges that she hit the windshield and that her foot was twisted backward .

On a day of hectic political activity in the JD (S) camp, Mr. Kumaraswamy was elected as the JD (S) Legislature Party leader after his name was proposed by Bandeppa Kashappanavar and seconded by G.T. Deve Gowda before he met Governor Vajubhai Vala with the candidates' list. Because, the central government is in the hands of the BJP.

Congress general secretary Ashok Gehlot said the anti-defection law is applicable in the country and in no way the BJP can prove that they have the majority.

The Congress has also said that granting 15 days' time to Yeddyurappa to prove majority on the floor of the House will promote horse trading, alleging that BJP will resort to poaching of MLAs of Congress and JD (S). He had done this in Manipur, Goa and Meghalaya, where the BJP had formed the government despite the party not having the numbers. In Karnataka, even though it clearly doesn't have the numbers, is to make a mockery of our Constitution.

Asked about the possibility of BJP breaking his MLA's Kumaraswamy showed confidence in his MLA's and threatened the BJP that he would break twice the number of MLA's from the BJP. All these departures from constitutional wholesomeness and political fairness have come to haunt the BJP bosses in Karnataka. The BJP, and its parent organization, the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh, have a much wider and larger presence in North India than in South India.

It is important to analyse if what the Karnataka governor has done is rational and fair and not arbitrary and malafide. However, few hours later, parties said all but one legislator were on board.

The question now is what happens in Karnataka. It does not want to be reduced to PPP (Punjab, Puducherry and Parivar), an acronym Modi coined in his characteristic caustic mode.
