Karnataka Governor invites Yeddyurappa to form government in the state

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Rahul Gandhi, together last year in New Delhi

But the manner in which it has won power is highly controversial, with many likening it to a fixed sporting match.

The court has also said in its order that in case Yeddyurappa is given oath, till it gives its final order in the matter, that shall be subject to its further orders.

The JD-S leader named Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah for the offer as the BJP, he said, was desperate to form a government and deny the JD-S a chance to form a government with Congress backing. The BJP now has the support of 105 MLAs. The Congress and JD (S), which have already announced post-poll tie-up, have won 78 and 37 seats respectively.

The JDS and Congress had moved the Supreme Court after Governor Vajubhai Vala invited the BJP to form the government first. Governors are political appointees, and Vala had served under Modi as his finance minister in the state of Gujarat.

Girl, 11, dies after tree falls on auto in Newburgh
A woman in Chestnut Ridge has died after a tree dropped onto her auto while she was driving in Tuesday's storm, police said. Baseball-sized hail has been reported in upstate NY , as well as high flood waters.

Sulking after having been made to quit, Yeddyurappa broke his decades-long association with the saffron party and formed the Karnataka Janata Paksha. Even as there is a buzz of an Operation Lotus being carried out discreetly to ensure that the BJP can cobble up 7 MLAs and form their government. The apex court took up the joint petition by the Congress- Janata Dal (Secular) alliance at around 1:45 am on Thursday and it was only the second time in its history that the SC had opened its doors for hearing. Even though they have 104 seats, they 8 seat sort of the magic number to form the government. Singh, it seems, has switched to the BJP, while Patil was whisked away on a private jet.

As projections after voting showed a hung Assembly, Mayawati asked her close aide and party Rajya Sabha MP Ashok Siddharth, who is also Karnataka BSP in charge, to meet Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.

While calling the Governer's decision unconstitutional, Kumaraswamy said, "By giving 15 days time (to prove majority) Governor is encouraging horse-trading by BJP leaders, this is unconstitutional". Nor did his voice matter in political strategy or backroom maneuvering at national level but as luck would have it, the so-called secularists joined hands with outside support of the Congress to prevent BJP from taking power.

Mocking Congress for raising the specter of irregularities in the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM), Pandey said that this was the usual modus operandi of the Congress Party that wastes no time in blaming the machines that happen to be the same machines where they have emerged victorious. He also hinted to opt for legal options if the governor fails to do so.

The opportunist Congress and JD-S were forgetting people's mandate, Rao said. "The Governor is following the Constitution". His cabinet will be sworn-in only after he proves majority in the House.

On Tuesday, the Congress extended unconditional support to the JD-S.

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

Curiously, the Attorney General, who appeared on behalf of the federal government during the post-midnight hearing in the Supreme Court, made a shocking submission.
