Karnataka governor invites Yeddyurappa to form government, take oath on Thursday

Yeddyurappa flashes the victory sign after taking oath as Karnataka CM

The rival Congress party said the Governor denigrated his office, trampled the Constitution and acted as a BJP puppet. "The governor has to give (the first) opportunity (for forming the government) to us", he told reporters. Siddaramaiah, who submitted his resignation to the Governor on Tuesday evening after the Congress failed to win required numbers in the Karnataka Legislative Assembly Election 2018, today alleged that the BJP is misusing power.

The BJP had emerged as the frontrunner in the elections grabbing 104 seats. The BJP increased its tally by 65 seats.

Italy's populist coalition plans spark social media satire
The policy program will probably be published Thursday, 5-Star said. Any deal "will be put to our members through a vote online", Mr.

The BJP bagged 104 seats, a gain of 64, while the Congress notched 78, a loss of 44 seats, though its vote share was almost two percentage points more than the BJP. "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.

The Congress also cited a Supreme Court judgment in the Goa case, where the BJP was not the single largest party but anyway formed the government. "There is only one way a party which got 104 will get 113". Yes, if Goa and Manipur is the yardstick then the JD (S)-Congress combine should get the first opportunity to prove their majority and be in power, but such a thing is nothing but risky. He said he would stake claim to form the government. The key word is not just single largest party, it is majority also. Horse trading is a familiar activity whenever an election delivers a hung Assembly, and even though the amount might never be known, the offers being made by either camp must be very lucrative, as the stakes are quite high. The party appears to be pulling out all the stops to get the support of these MLAs in a bid to get past the halfway mark on the floor of the house. You can not call a Governor to court.

Under Article 356 (3), it is the limitation on the powers of the President. "He told me that he will take an appropriate decision".

Article 356 is justified only when there is a breakdown of constitutional machinery and not administrative machinery. Former AG Mukul Rohatgi who appeared for the BJP questioned the urgency of the matter to hear it at midnight. In Manipur, the Congress had 28 seats and the BJP had only 21.

"Our MLAs were offered Rs 100 crore by the BJP to break away".

But soon, the tweet was deleted, only to be replaced with the new time, 9 am.

Cauvery water dispute: DMK working president MK Stalin slams draft scheme
The Centre has ignored the directive given in the Cauvery Tribunal's final award that the CMB should be an independent body. The Apex court also directed the Centre to file a modified scheme on Cauvery River management before it on Thursday.

While Mr. Patil's election disproves the argument that all the Ministers who fought for the Lingayat cause have suffered a setback, not all those who stood with the Veerashaiva seers (who opposed the Cabinet decision) were lucky either. The Bommai verdict is considered and taken as a landmark. Conventionally, a governor can ask respective parties or coalitions to establish their majority in the house by way of a floor test. Majority is a key factor.
