Karnataka developments trigger series of reactions in Goa, Bihar and Manipur

BCongress and JD leaders stage dharna in front of Gandhi Statue near Vidhan Sabha in Bengaluru to protest against Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala’s invitation to BJP to form the government

After the BJP was invited by the Karnataka governor to form the government because it was "the single largest party", despite the fact that the Congress and JD (S) had submitted a list of 117 MLAs that supported the post-poll coalition's claim, the Goa state unit of the Congress has announced that it plans to meet with the state governor to stake claim to the government.

"We will request the Bihar Governor to dismiss the state government and invite the RJD to form the government", he said.

Not just the Congress, but the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in Bihar, which emerged as the single largest party after the polls, has also made a decision to approach the Bihar governor.

Hours after Yeddyurappa was sworn in, the Congress units in Goa, Manipur, and Meghalaya and, in Bihar, RJD leader Tejasvi Yadav - former deputy chief minister and son of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad - said they would meet the Governors of these states and ask for being invited to form government on the same grounds as applied in Karnataka.

"While in Karnataka, the governor has invited the single largest party, in Goa too, the same precedent should be followed", he said.

In the Assembly elections held in February a year ago, the Congress had bagged 17 seats, becoming the single largest party in the 40-member House but falling short of the majority figure by four seats.

The RJD fought the elections in alliance with Janata Dal (United) or JD (U) and the Congress, emerging as the single largest party.

In Manipur, once again Congress was the single largest victor with 25 seats but the BJP that had 21 seats was able to form the government with the help other smaller parties.

"Our basic grouse is that two governors of two states can not take different stands".

Italy government alliance clashes with European Union ideology
Five Star would put the pact to an online vote of its members and The League says it will take the deal to the streets. However, three 5-Star sources said the main stumbling point remained who should head the administration.

The BJP, which got 14 seats, formed the government in alliance with Goa Forward Party and MGP, both of which had secured three seats each.

"The formation of government in Karnataka is undemocratic and to protest this murder of democracy we have chose to launch a day-long protest in Patna".

Yadav also said that he will be meeting the Bihar governor at 1 PM tomorrow. However, BJP clobbered up the support of 11 MLAs to add to its tally of 21 to form the government.

The Congress won 78 seats and the JD (S) 37.

The drama in Karnataka is playing out in various parts of the states.It began at Goa, then spread to Bihar and now has reached Manipur as well. "It's dictatorship by BJP", he said while addressing a press conference. "We are in majority in Goa as well as Bihar".

The Congress now has 16 members in the Goa Assembly as one of its legislators Vishwajeet Rane joined the BJP previous year.

Now, as the BJP's past action boomerangs on itself and with the Congress going all out to consolidate its shrinking power-holds (the party is in power in Punjab and Puducehrry alone), all eyes are on the Supreme Court's verdict of Friday.

Kavlekar said that in the absence of the chief minister in the state for the last two months, there is no governance in place.
