Why BJP shouldn't have been allowed to form government in Karnataka

Amit Shah

The BJP may be celebrating its party President BS Yeddyurappa being sworn in as the new Chief Minister of Karnataka, but the political action is far from over. On May 15, the BJP won 104 seats out of 222 Assembly seats that went to polls in Karnataka.

Singhvi contended that while even imposition of President's Rule under Article 356 is subject to judicial review and wondered why the Governor's decision can not be subjected to judicial review.

The Congress party and the allied regional grouping Janata Dal (United), which together control 117 seats in the newly elected state legislature, maintain that they should be able to form a coalition government and have challenged the governor's decision in court.

On Thursday, Congress leader and former Finance Minister P.Chidambaram tweeted saying Yedyurappa's letter to the Governor will "seal his fate".

"Someone said we are giving horses a bad name by calling it horse trading".

The Karnataka Speaker election can very well become a trust vote of the Yeddyurappa government.

Anand Singh - Congress MLA from Vijayanagar constituency has the most number (16) of criminal cases, followed by B Nagendra (15) - Congress MLA from Bellary and S A Ravindranath (11) - BJP MLA from Davanagere North. The state party spokesperson Randeep Surajwala in a press conference held on Thursday remarked that Vajubhai Vala had sacrificed his seat for Narendra Modi earlier, and yesterday he sacrificed constitution and democracy for him (Modi).

JD (S) leader HD Kumaraswamy accused the BJP of horse trading.

Arguing for the Union of India, Attorney General K.K. Venugopal said: "we don't know what happened in exchanges between Governor and Yeddyurappa, or what he has said in his letter".

Interestingly in the high-stakes political drama that is now taking place in the state, Anand Singh did not show up to the legislative party meeting held in Bengaluru, triggering speculations that he may rejoin the BJP, reports the Indian Express.

Kumaraswamy also asked non-BJP parties to unite and requested his father and former prime minister Deve Gowda to take the initiative.

In his plea Jethmalani said, he has not come before the court in favour or against any party but has been hurt over the unconstitutional decision taken by the Governor.

The Congress-JDS alliance has filed the application apprehending the possibility that Yeddyurappa's BJP may attempt to influence the Governor of Karnataka to nominate an Anglo-Indian MLA in a bid to increase their strength in the State Assembly.
