The BJP, which appeared confident of returning to power in its only southern bastion, emerged as the single largest party but failed to cross the half-way mark in the 224-member Assembly where two constituencies didn't vote on Saturday.
The JD (S) and the Congress had formed a coalition government as the Karnataka assembly polls held in April 2004 threw up a fractured mandate as in May 2018. "I hope that he will abide by the Constitution and give his direction", he said.
I seek your support and blessings as I take oath as the Chief Minister of Karnataka tomorrow on May 17 at 9 AM in Raj Bhavan. "We will let you know what is the plan".
In the election results, the Bharatiya Janata Party has won 104 seats, emerging as the single largest party, while the Congress with 78 seats is at the second position. ANIreported that JD (S) leader Kumaraswamy had requested to meet the Governor at his residence between 5.30 pm and 6 pm today evening. People want him to be the CM. Even before full results could come in, intense political parley began with the Congress and the JD (S) declaring that they would jointly form the government in Karnataka. The allegation was, however, repeated by outgoing chief minister Siddaramaiah, who accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of encouraging horsetrading so the BJP returned to power. The party is also referring to the SR Bommai case where the Supreme Court had said that largest party should be first invited to form the government.
Some MLAs from both JD (S) and Congress were part of the delegation.
The BJP hit back at the Congress, with senior leader and Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad saying: "The party that blew up the Constitution to shambles is teaching us the Constitution, the party that imposed President's Rule the most number of times is giving us lessons".
While BJP claims to have the support of 4 MLAs from Congress, it still needs to get four more MLAs.
All eyes are now on Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala, who will have to invite one of these parties to form the government in the state.
"That could embolden the government to pursue reforms in future, including loosening foreign direct investment restrictions and moves towards privatization". The BJP claims that many disgruntled Congress and JD (S) MLAs are in talks with the saffron party. Governor can not take sides.
In Karnataka, the combined vote share of Congress and JD-S now stands at 56.4%.
JD (S) chief ministerial candidate HD Kumaraswamy was quoted as saying that the party has already made a decision to go with the Congress. "We have complained to the Home Minister, IG and DG", Shobha said. Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad even went on to say that the governor can not take sides and must cut previous ties. There has been worry about horse trading but this has been deal with by both parties with public announcements of the BJP efforts to buy MLAs, with Kumaraswamy insisting that the price per MLA is Rs 100 crores. The BJP juggernaut has been successful in crushing the Congress.
The court also issued a notice to Yeddyurappa, asking them file a reply even former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, who appeared for the BJP said how long Yeddyurappa should be given to prove majority could be debated after two days.
