Some Curious Facts About Karnataka Results

Karnataka state elections throw up unclear verdict Elections over, and now politics begins

After a warm up meeting late on Tuesday evening between HD Deve Gowda and his son Kumarswamy, both parties nearly moved forward in tandem on Wednesday, calling a meeting of their legislative parties, ensuring they spoke in one voice while attacking the BJP.

Senior Congress leader and strategist Ghulam Nabi Azad met with a Delhi representative of the JD (S), Danish Ali, known to be the "eyes and ears" of the leader, and suggested talks.

"They (BJP) are poaching our MLAs, and we know that".

The BJP leader will take oath at 9 am on Thursday in Rajbhawan.

Party sources aware of the developments said Siddaramaiah "kind of got emotional" as he spoke during the legislature party meeting of the Congress' loss despite his government's "good developmental works". Janata Dal (Secular) accepted "unconditional" support from Congress, which was once a bitter foe. As the results show, BJP's vote share has dropped by some seven percentage points since the 2014 general elections. He said that the party has a plan to safeguard all lawmakers. And he again spoke to the media about the BJP effort to buy the MLA's and stop the coalition government from coming to power. The JD (S) emerged the kingmaker in the assembly polls as experts had predicted.

The governor's apparent decision to invite the BJP, as the largest single party, and not the Congress-JDS, to have the first stab at forming a coalition was highly controversial.

The two parties that are still waiting for the Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to take a decision, have chose to fight the battle to the finish and will approach the Supreme Court in case he decides to go along with the BJP and invite the single largest party, instead of the alliance with the requisite majority.

Those routes, and several others, were eliminated past year after other airlines - chiefly United - cut fares to compete. The additions make Denver-based Frontier the largest carrier in San Antonio for direct flights, totaling 23 cities.

However, the spotlight also throws into relief the acrimonious campaign the two parties ran against each other, and raises questions on the stability of the government their alliance can even offer to the people of Karnataka. "We are going by the rule book and we will form the government", Javadekar said.

In the 51 constituencies reserved for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, the BJP got just seven in 2013 while the Congress got 26 and JD-S 11.

The BJP was the single largest party with 104 seats, nine short of an overall majority. The Congress-JD (S) together make up for 115 seats, and have the majority to form the government they claim. Union ministers gave arguments supporting them.

Eshwarappa, a BJP veteran, claimed several MLAs in the Congress and JD (S) were unhappy about the alliance and were likely to break away from their parties. On social media, Kerala Tourism has already asked Karnataka to consider God's Own Country.

"The people of Karnataka have believed in BJP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah". In the case of a hung Assembly, the leader is asked to prove the majority on the floor of the House within a stipulated time.

In fact, they believe that the governor will have no other option. He has sometimes not done so well in other state polls where the BJP is now in power - for example in Gujarat last December where the BJP won the assembly election but with fewer seats, and in Uttar Pradesh by-elections where it lost seats.
