Jethmalani moves SC against Karnataka Guv's decision inviting BJP to form govt


Janata Dal (Secular) legislators and leaders will also be joining the agitation soon, party sources said. The post-poll alliance partners even submitted a list of 117 MLAs to the governor.

Singhvi contended that while even imposition of President's Rule under Article 356 is subject to judicial review and wondered why the Governor's decision can not be subjected to judicial review.

The pro-tem Speaker will also administer the oath to MLA-elects.

That is Governor Karnataka illegally swearing in Yeddyurappa - turning the Raj Bhavan into BJP Office. Interestingly, Karnataka has been the destination of choice for this type of politics. He also alleged that BJP leaders are constantly calling their MLAs and their families, reports ANI.

On Wednesday, the governor sided with the BJP however, asking it to form a government and prove its majority within 15 days in the assembly, according to a copy of a letter posted by the party on Twitter. He requested that the current government here should be dissolved and the single largest party, RJD, be invited to form the government. It is unfortunate that Congress being an old age party is indulging in nefarious activities, they should work as a constructive opposition party, says BJP leader Ananth Kumar. The AICC has called for protests all over the country against the "partial and authoritarian act" of the governor.

"I am 100% sure of the success", he said, striking a confident note on emerging victorious in the trial of strength in the assembly. "By creating an opportunity to Yeddyurappa to take oath, the precedents in democracy have been thrown to the winds", Chennithala said. BJP's movement is laughable. I know they are threatening MLAs.

Sgt Jeff Clark, a department spokesman, said authorities would not comment about the documents released on Wednesday. According to the records, shooter Stephen Paddock had made a Mandalay Bay housekeeper uneasy during his stay there.

Following Congress footstep, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Tejashwi Yadav also chose to meet the Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik to stake claim to form the government in the state.

"Many of the CoNgress and JDs MLAs won by fighting each other". Congress is ill informed and as a result is making these amusing claims, says Prakash Javadekar. "We condemn it", said DMK President MK Stalin.

"This is not the system".

Security has been removed outside Eagleston resort.

In the Manipur and Goa elections previous year, Congress emerged as the single largest party in a fractured mandate, but BJP went on to form the government in the states. The BHP still needs the support of seven MLAs to form the government.
