Well, the great grand old party, Congress has handover the written proposal to the Governor of its support to JD (S). Such is the irony that HD Kumaraswamyof the Janata Dal (Secular) that finished third, winning only 37 seats with a vote share of 18.4%, is now a frontrunner to head the next government. "BJP is trying the same old trick like the last time". In a special programme by News Nation, Watch Will the Karnataka Assembly Elections affect 2019 General Elections?

Elections were conducted for 222 out the total 224 assembly seats. But the party high command is said to have applied brakes on the move and asked state leaders to wait till a clear message from them. Yeddyurappa said the governor told him he'd take an "appropriate" decision "as early as possible". The NCP said the Congress should forget about the prime ministerial candidate issue for now. We bow our heads to the verdict. It refused to stay BSY's oath-taking and directed him to produce the letter written to the Governor on May 15 where he staked his claim to form government.

"I invite you to form the Government and be sworn in as the Chief Minister of Karnataka".

There was mudslinging among different seers of the Lingayat-Veerashaiva community and the leaders within the Congress. Insiders indicated that the Congress was hoping for a 5% swing in the vote share. They have accepted our offer. Kumaraswamy, who has been offered the chief minister's post by the Congress, said: "I have reports that BJP is offering Rs 25 crore to lure MLAs to quit and seek re-election on its symbol". As per results, we're doing everything to keep BJP out of power.

As per a rule, the Governor does not have to invite the single largest party to come forward to form the government.

"I am sure being the single largest party we have the rightful democratic claim on forming the government and the Governor is definitely going to respect the claim", he told IANS here on Tuesday. However, according to sources, at least two MLAs of the Congress remained absent from their legislature party meeting.

The BJP leader will take oath at 9 am on Thursday in Rajbhawan. As uncertainty looms large, the allegations of "horse-trading" MLAs' have been made from all the three parties.

"Our majority is established".

Both sides rushed to meet Vala and staked claim to power. Goa faced a hung assembly as no party managed to secure the needed 22 seats.

Even as there is a buzz of an Operation Lotus being carried out discreetly to ensure that the BJP can cobble up 7 MLAs and form their government.

All eyes on Governor, but isn't delaying decision also an "action"? It argued that the Governor should have invited the majority post-poll coalition of JDS-Congress first. Honourable Governor Shri Vajubhai Vala will administer the oath.

Several BJP and Congress leaders rushed to Bengaluru from the national capital. Vala was appointed Karnataka governor in September 2014, soon after the power transition at centre.
