Senior Congress leader blames Siddaramaiah for defeat

JD President H.D. Kumaraswamy speaks to media after the JD legislative party meeting in Bangalore on Wednesday

The Congress has dramatically backed the JD (S) for chief ministership and both parties are likely to parade their MLAs before Governor Vajubhai Vala today morning.

The latest fractured mandate has given the three main parties an opportunity to form post-poll alliances and prove their majority on the floor of the House.

The BJP, on the other hand, is eight seats short of the 112-halfway mark needed for a simple majority.

H D Kumaraswamy, who has emerged the dark horse in the three-horse race with just 37 MLAs, was formally elected the leader of the JD (S) legislature party, and claimed attempts were being made by the BJP to "bribe" its way to power through "horsetrading".

While the JD (S) offered a blanket loan waiver to farmers, weavers and artisans, the Congress talked of an agro-infrastructure corridor for farmers.

Kumaraswamy agreed to accept Congress' unconditional support in forming the new government.

Congress leaders said the party, by extending support to JD (S), although belatedly, was sending out a message of flexibility.

He said in view of the Governors "illegal" decision, the Congress president has decided that all party workers will observe May 18 as save democracy day, by holding dharnas and protests in every nook and corner of the country and expose "misdeeds" of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah. The petitioner has to satisfy the Court only prima facie that the Proclamation is vitiated by any one or some of the above grounds and burden then shifts on the Council of Ministers to satisfy the Court of the legality and validity of the Presidential Proclamation issued under Article 356.

State Congress President Parameshwara, after meeting the Governor, told reporters that Vala assured them he would act as per the Constitution, Supreme Court judgments and precedents. "I'm also telling the Governor to not take any decision which encourages horse-trading", said Kumaraswamy. "The BJP's irrational insistence that it will form a Govt.in Karnataka, even though it clearly doesn't have the numbers, is to make a mockery of our Constitution", Gandhi Tweeted.

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. "That is the message Sonia Gandhi is trying to send out, that we can do anything to keep the BJP out of power", said a senior party leader. "As far as the question of which party has the majority is concerned, it can be proven only on the floor of the house, not at the Raj Bhavan or by submitting any list", he added.

When BJP leaders sent Modi to Gujarat in 2001, no MLA was interested initially in vacating their seat for Modi.

He also cited the fall in Congress tally from 122 in 2013 to 78 seats this time and said his party's number stood at 104 seats, suggesting that the BJP has the mandate to form the government.

Two decades later, an 85-year-old Deve Gowda now has all the reasons to cheer the remarks he made. I have informed the same to the Chief Secretary.

The Congress and the JD (S) have a history of tripping each other up politically, although the JD (S) has not done a very good job of keeping its word to the BJP either.
