K'taka Guv's decision gives Goa Congress new ammo

Tejashwi Yadav Professor Nageshwar — Who should form the Government in a hung Assembly?
Sammy Stanley | 18 May, 2018, 03:43

Along with one independent MLA, the BJP has staked the claim at forming the government.

In Manipur, the Congress had secured 28 seats while the BJP got just 21 in the March 2017 elections. This procedure is not, however, all time formula because situations can arise where MPs not belonging to the single largest party or combination can, as a collective entity, out-number the single largest claimant.

Chodankar said that Congress MLAs, along with party office bearers, will march to the Raj Bhavan from the Dona Paula circle to meet the Governor at 12 pm on Friday. It directed the Centre to place before it two communications, sent by Yeddyurappa to Governor Vajubhai Vala in which he had staked claim to form the government, saying their perusal was necessary to decide the case.

Goa Congress Legislature Party chief Chandrakant Kavlekar said the party will stake claim tomorrow by submitting to Governor Mridula Sinha a formal letter containing signatures of all the 16 party MLAs.

Not just the Congress, but the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in Bihar, which emerged as the single largest party after the polls, has also made a decision to approach the Bihar governor. "We might opt for legal options if our plea is not heard", a senior RJD leader said requesting anonymity.

Kavlekar said that in absence of the chief minister in the state since last two months, there is no government in place.

"I welcome Mark Zuckerberg's decision to appear in person before the representatives of 500 million Europeans", he said. While Zuckerberg testified last month to the U.S.

RJD leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav, at a press conference in Patna on Thursday said that he has asked Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik to dissolve the incumbent NDA administration with Nitish Kumar as its Chief Minister and invite the RJD to form the new government since it had the largest seat share in the state in 2015 Assembly polls.

"Yadav, son of Lalu Prasad and the Leader of the Opposition in the Bihar Assembly, told reporters in Patna he has sought an appointment with the Governor Satyapal Malik on Friday before whom we wish to submit that there can not be double standards". "There can not be two sets of rules and two Constitutions", Surjewala said.

The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader said that if the Bharatiya Janata Party was invited by the Karnataka Governor to form the government on grounds that it was the single largest party, then RJD also had the right to form the government. "We request Her Excellency to follow big brother Karnataka Governor and invite the Congress to form the Goa government to rectify a wrong", he stressed.

Mounting an attack on BJP, Congress president Rahul Gandhi at a party event in Chhattisgarh's Raipur said: "The Constitution is under severe attack in the country". If they have allowed the single-largest party to come to power in Karnataka, then they should allow that here as well.

During the 2017 state elections in the state, Congress had bagged 17 seats and BJP 13 of the 40-member Goa assembly.

Congress leader and former Chief Minister of Karnataka Siddaramaiah slams BJP says, "The matter is pending before the Court".
