BJP All Set To Wrest Karnataka From Congress

BJP All Set To Wrest Karnataka From Congress

The allegations were promptly dismissed by the BJP, with Union minister Prakash Javadekar dubbing them as "imaginary".

The Karnataka election results had on Tuesday thrown up a hung assembly.

Elections were conducted for 222 out the total 224 assembly seats. They have rejected the Congress party. The Supreme Court said that it can't overturn the decision of the Governor without seeing on what basis the BJP had claimed to have the numbers. The Vokkaliga community of Karnataka has voted for JD (S) in large numbers. The only other Minister to make it was M.B. Patil, who had turned out to be the face of the movement from the Congress. We bow our heads to the verdict. "Calling an immoral and illegal government to be sworn in as an illegitimate child can not sustain the scrutiny of the Constitution or the test of law", Mr Surjewala said at a press conference. "I have accepted the support extended by the Congress to form the Government", Kumaraswamy said. "We have filed a petition before the Supreme Court and have urged the registrar to allow a hearing on it tonight itself", Mr Singhvi said, adding that an immediate hearing was sought as the matter was very serious. Addressing the media, party chief HD Kumaraswamy accused the BJP of offering huge bribes to JD (S) lawmakers, including a 100-crore rupee bribe and berths in the cabinet. The BJP and its allies are in power in 22.

After being heavily outnumbered by the BJP during the counting of votes yesterday, the Congress struck a deal with the JD (S). However, at the time of going to press, there has been no official communication from the Governor's office.

The newly elected Karnataka BJP legislators on Wednesday formally elected BS Yeddyurappa as its legislative party leader, party spokesman S. Shantharam said. The Congress has made an issue of the 15 days given to the BJP legislature party leader to prove his majority in the house. One, he wants to go down in history as the BJP leader who spread the party in South India. "In the morning, it looked like the BJP will have enough to form the government, and on the basis of that BJP started celebrating also". The bench had clearly sided with Chief Minister Bommai saying the Governor should have given him the chance and majority can be established only on the floor of the House before the governor recommended President's rule. If Congress wins the remaining four, the combine will have 115 seats, enough for a majority. "Governor has assured that he will take action as per the Constitution". In case, that also does not happen, the Governor should invite the entity which enters into post-poll alliance and forms a majority.

It now depends on governor Vajubhai Vala whether he would follow convention or go along with SC's past year suggestion.

"BJP (leaders) are expert kidnappers".
