The Governor has invited party's leaders and its newly-elected legislators to the swearing-in ceremony.

Two, if Congress gets off its high horse and accommodates smaller parties, it will galvanize the formation of opposition fronts against the BJP in most states.

A hung assembly in Karnataka could delay public infrastructure projects and other policies that are in the works, start-up founders and entrepreneurs in state capital Bengaluru said.

Elections were conducted for 222 out the total 224 assembly seats. They said the Congress should take the lead in forging alliances, but without setting any condition.

The chief minister has also taken controversial decisions such as proposing a flag for the state and emphasising the use of the local Kannada language. You have seen how the Congress and the JD-S were fighting, six months back. We bow our heads to the verdict. Immediately thereafter, Yeddyurappa made a dash for Raj Bhavan and staked claim to form the government.

Soon after Congress declared its support to JD (S), Kumaraswamy wrote to the governor informing him that he had accepted the offer. "We will go to the court of the people", Surjewala said, addressing the press in Delhi. On the other hand, the alacrity with which the Congress leadership has reached out to JD (S) seeking a post-election alliance to form a coalition government underscores their common interest to ensure that BJP is kept out of power. "But Modi is responsible for today's resort politics", said Kumaraswamy, son of former PM and JD (S) supremo H.D. Deve Gowda. They don't believe in democracy, BJP just wants power. "If President's rule under Article 356 can be stayed by a court, why not this (decision to invite BJP and give 15 days for floor test) in which a Governor has exercised his discretion without the aid and advice of the Cabinet?"

"I am sure being the single largest party we have the rightful democratic claim on forming the government and the Governor is definitely going to respect the claim", he told IANS here on Tuesday.

On board a colourful jeep, on the last day of campaigning in his constituency Shikaripura, Karnataka BJP chief B.S. Yeddyurappa had very confidently told ThePrint: "I will be sworn in as the chief minister of Karnataka on 17 May". Siddaramaiah had also accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of encouraging horse-trading. The Karnataka Pragnyavantha Janatha Party and an Independent won one seat each.

"Our majority is established". Hence, BS Yeddyurappa, who represents the single largest party with the highest number of MLAs, can not stake a claim because he does not have a majority.

The Congress, with 78 seats in their kitty, was in the second position. "Governor has assured that he will take action as per the Constitution".
