Congress invokes 'K'taka model' in Goa; RJD in Bihar

  • Congress cites Goa Mizoram Meghalaya in staking claim for Karnataka with JD

"The governor should invite us to form the government in Goa as per the precedent set by her Karnataka counterpart, said Kavlekar, the Leader of Opposition in the Goa Assembly".

Kavlekar was referring to the Governor Vala's decision to invite Yeddyurappa to form the next government after assembly election results on Tuesday saw the BJP emerging as the single largest party with 104 seats in the 222-member Karnataka Assembly.

The voices against the BJP's "illegal" way of coming to power in Karnataka were also being raised in several other states, including Bihar and Tamil Nadu. Why two critieria for two states?

Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala swearing in BS Yeddyurappa as Karnataka chief minister on Thursday has stirred up a hornet's nest, making things increasingly tough for Narendra Modi government and BJP across the country.

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.

"If necessary Congress can parade its MLAs also at Governor house", sources said.

"A delegation of the party led by Congress legislative party (CLP) and Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) will meet Goa Governor on Friday and stake our claim to form the next government in Goa", he said. Party leaders are unsure if the governors would respond favourably to their demand and the only option with them is to move a no-confidence motion in the next assembly session.

Democrats Try to Hang Net Neutrality Vote on GOP in Midterms
But net-neutrality advocates argue that smaller companies that don't have the money to pay for fast lanes could suffer . The CTIA , USTelecom and the NCTA earlier sent a joint letter to senators asking them to vote against the measure.

According to IANS report, the Congress leaders said that since the BJP which had become the single largest party in Karnataka was allowed to form the government the same should not be denied to the Congress.

"If we aren't united today then it was Bihar yesterday, Karnataka today, can be MP or Rajasthan tomorrow", he added. The BJP however countered that by stating that the Congress in Goa never staked a claim. The majority mark in the Karnataka assembly is 112 seats. However, the BJP, with 21 seats, joined hands with National People's Party (four seats), Naga People's Front (four seats) and the Lok Janshakti Party (one seat) to form the first BJP government in the state.

However, on being called by Governor Najma Heptullah, BJP managed to form government through a post-poll tie up with NPP, NPF, LJP and winning over one MLA from Congress. However, the RJD is still the single largest party with 80 MLAs.

The JD (U)-BJP alliance together with other allies have 131 seats in the 243 Assembly. In the March 2017 elections, Congress with 28 members had emerged as the single-largest party in the 60-member Assembly leaving behind BJP on the second spot with 21 MLAs.

"How will the BJP prove majority [in Karnataka]?"

Surjewala said Narayanan had set a fair and constitutionally correct precedent by inviting Atal Bihari Vajpayee to form and lead a coalition government on March 12, 1998. BJP, which got 14 seats, formed the government in alliance with Goa Forward Party and MGP, both of which had secured three seats each. In the 2015 Bihar state polls, former Chief Minister Lalu Prasad's RJD emerged as the single largest party.
