Cong meet Governor, submit list of 117 MLAs

The BJP is India’s ruling party The BJP is India’s ruling party

The swift political manoeuvring by Congress in reaching out to JD (S) headed showed that it had learnt its lesson after the debacle in Manipur and Goa where it failed to form the government despite being the single largest party because of BJP's clever moves. Gowda's son HD Kumaraswamy is its chief ministerial candidate.

Dividing Hindus has clearly backfired for Congress and they must be aware of it as far strategizing for Lok Sabha Elections is concerned. Later in the day, Janata Dal-Secular and Congress leaders met Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala to press their claim for government formation. Congress Karnataka unit president G Parmeshwara, however, reasserted that all the Congress MLAs were with the party.

Congress leader D K Shivakumar, while talking to news agency ANI, said that the party had a plan and that they were facing a lot of pressure with the BJP trying to poach Congress MLAs.

"After the election results, no party has got the majority. That's why the Karnataka government wants to tap our phones and listen to what we talk about the leaders and with our leaders", she added. But when Congress and JDS combined, BJP is behind 9 MLA's to form the government.

Governor has assured that he will take action as per the Constitution. The Supreme Court has asked that the letter given by Yeddyurappa and senior BJP leaders to the Governor in which it was stated that the party has the requisite number of MLAs to form the government be produced before the court.

Although marijuana arrests dropped during de Blasio's tenure, there were still over 17,000 arrests in 2017. Cuomo, who has opposed it, said moves by surrounding states to legalize have changed the equation.

"We have 117 lawmakers, well above the majority mark", outgoing Congress Chief Minister Siddaramaiah told reporters after the meeting on Tuesday. Union minister Prakash Javadekar promptly dismissed the JD-S charge, calling it "imaginary".

"We have no issue with the governor". As per results, we're doing everything to keep BJP out of power. Kumaraswamy, who has been offered the chief minister's post by the Congress, said: "I have reports that BJP is offering Rs 25 crore to lure MLAs to quit and seek re-election on its symbol".

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.

Late Tuesday evening, when gossip about BJP's horse trading efforts started doing the rounds, Twitter was abuzz with tweets mocking how the real victor in Karnataka would be of resort owners. The BJP is claiming that some MLAs from the Congress and the JD (S) are on its side, and the Congress and JD (S) are making counter claims that some BJP MLAs are in contact with them. "My advice to the Congress is that barring few states where there are no regional parties, give a major share to the regional parties and take a major share for Parliament elections".
