Yesterday, both Congress-JD(S) and BJP have individually met the Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala and staked claimed to form the government. Kumaraswamy is said to have written a letter to Governor and later, met and asked him to invite him to form the government with Congress support. Governor asked for two more days’ time to take notice of the existing political conditions.
Usually, Governor should invite the single largest party first to form the government. That means, Vajubhai should invite the BJP as it is the single largest party with 104 seats. But, this rule wasn’t obeyed in Goa and Manipur. BJP was invited which was not even the single largest party in Goa. Now, Congress and JD(S) are asking the Governor to follow the same.
After meeting and asking the Governor, Congress and JDS held a joint press conference in which it made its intentions very clear. Simultaneously, BJP’s CM candidate BS Yeddyurappa also met Governor and asked him about his advantage.
Now, everyone is eagerly waiting for Vajubahi’s next step, who is a former RSS worker and BJP’s senior leader. He even worked as Finance Minister in Narendra Modi government. Let’s wait and see what his decision could bring a fruitful outcome.
