BJP's Karnataka plan fires Opposition imagination in Bihar Meghalaya, Manipur and Goa

BJP's Karnataka plan fires Opposition imagination in Bihar Meghalaya, Manipur and Goa

Meanwhile, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said at a press conference that party MLAs would meet Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik at 1 pm on Friday, ANI reported. He added that he would request the governor to to dissolve the current JD (U)-BJP government and invite the RJD to form the government.

After Congress' decision to stake claim to form a government in Goa, where it had emerged as the single largest party in the Assembly polls held past year, the Rashtriya Janata Dal chose to a take a leaf out of this strategy and meet the governor of Bihar.

On the time given to Yeddyurappa to prove majority, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader said, "How will BJP prove majority?" Congress Legislature Party chief Chandrakant Kavlekar said in a letter to Governor Mridula Sinha. "We are not only the single-largest party but also the single-largest block of pre-poll alliance in Bihar". This is gundagardi of BJP; it will be called as a black day in democracy if BJP is allowed to form the government in Karnataka. The governor should invite us to form the government in Goa as per the precedent set by her Karnataka counterpart, said Kavlekar, who is also the Leader of Opposition in the Goa Assembly.

The RJD had emerged as the single-largest party in the assembly polls held in 2015. Goa Congress chief Girish Chodankar said that the governors can't have two different set of rules.

The BJP, which got 14 seats, formed the government in alliance with Goa Forward Party and MGP, both of which had secured three seats each.

However, they are still short of the halfway mark of 112 by seven MLAs and have been given 15 days to prove their majority in the Karnataka assembly. In Karnataka, Governor invited BJP as they are the single largest party.

It needs to be underlined that the Constitution does not provide any specific guidelines to Governors for the appointment of a chief minister in a situation when no party has a clear-cut majority.

The Congress is giving an "opportunity to Goa governor to rectify the mistake which she did last year", Kavelkar said.

The BJP-led government in Goa is headed by Manohar Parrikar, who is now undergoing treatment in the United States for his pancreatic ailment. The party's state president HD Kumaraswamy attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government for "demolishing" the democracy.

According to the sources, Goa Congress in-charge Chella Kumar, along with other party leaders will leave for Goa on Thursday. However, the RJD is still the single largest party with 80 MLAs. This has come 15 months after the Goa Assembly Elections 2018. The BJP had won 13 of the 40 seats. The DMK, a key southern ally of the Congress, termed Vala's invite to the BJP to form a government in the state "hasty" and "unconstitutional" and alleged that it would lead to horse-trading.
