Karnataka effect: Congress, RJD rush to stake claim in Manipur, Goa, Bihar

Congress MLAs being taken from Bengaluru resort

The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader said that if the Bharatiya Janata Party was invited by the Karnataka Governor to form the government on grounds that it was the single largest party, then then RJD also had the right to form the government.

After Congress' annoucement that they will stake claim to form government in Goa, Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejaswi Yadav on Thursday said that the party MLAs will meet Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik at 1 p.m. on Friday, May 17 to stake claim to form the goverment in the State. The BJP however countered that by stating that the Congress in Goa never staked a claim.

In the 2017 Goa Assembly elections, the Congress emerged as the single-largest party bagging 17 of the 40 seats. This is gundagardi of BJP; it will be called as a black day in democracy if BJP is allowed to form the government in Karnataka.

"If Karnataka Governor can invite single largest BJP to form government, why not Goa governor invite single largest Congress in Goa? The governor should invite us to form the government in Goa as per the precedent set by her Karnataka counterpart, said Kavlekar, the Leader of Opposition in the Goa Assembly".

The RJD had emerged as the single-largest party in the assembly polls held in 2015. The saffron party, with 21 seats, joined hands with National People's Party (four seats), Naga People's Front (four seats) and the Lok Janshakti Party (one seat) to form the first BJP government in the state.

Launching another attack at Karnataka Vajubhai Vala, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala today said, "Vajubhai vala had sacrificed his seat for Narendra Modi earlier, yesterday he sacrificed Constitution and democracy for him". Goa Congress chief Girish Chodankar said that the governors can't have two different set of rules. "While in Karnataka the Governor has invited the single-largest party, in Goa too, the same precedent should be followed", he said.

The RJD holds 80 seats in the 243-seat Bihar Assembly, whereas the ruling coalition parties Janata Dal (United) and the BJP hold 70 seats and 53 seats each respectively, totaling to 123 seats.

Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar is being treated in the USA for a pancreatic ailment and because of it there is no government in the state, said Kavlekar. Kavlekar said in the absence of the chief minister, there was no proper government in the state. Meghalaya elections were held in February 2018. "Why (was) RJD was given just twi days time to form the government but BJP was given 15 days time to prove majority?"

Kavlekar was referring to the Governor Vala's decision to invite Yeddyurappa to form the next government after assembly election results on Tuesday saw the BJP emerging as the single largest party with 104 seats in the 222-member Karnataka Assembly.
