Bengaluru: Karnataka Assembly election - Day 2 begins with more drama


Bengaluru, May 16 (DHNS): A day after the counting and result of the Karnataka assembly polls, the Congress expressed faith in their abilities to form the coalition government with the J D(S) even as speculation suggests that the BJP is aggressively attempting to poach their MLAs.

Several prominent leaders issued statements in this regard as they interacted with reporters while arriving at the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) office on Queen's road Vasanth Nagar for a party legislative meeting.

"All the Congress MLAs are intact. Nobody is missing. We are confident of forming the government," Chief Minister Siddaramaiah told ANI outside the KPCC office.

Elected Congress representative from Kushtagi, Amaregouda Linganagouda Patil Bayyapur, confirmed that he had received an offer from the BJP.

"I got a call from the BJP leaders. They said come to us and we will give a ministry to you. We'll make you a minister. But, I'm going to stay here. HD Kumaraswamy is our Chief Minister," Linganagouda Patil told ANI.

On being asked whether they are aware of the BJPs tactics and if they have any plan to outmanoeuvre them, DK Shivakumar, former minister of energy told reporters that the Congress is prepared.

"They (BJP) are poaching our MLAs, we know that. Every day there is a lot of pressure. But it is not so easy because two parties have the necessary number. People are watching this. Yes definitely there is a plan. We have to safeguard our MLAs. We will let you know what is the plan,” said Shivakumar.

"I don't know what they (BJP) are offering but they are trying to call our people. We are all together. No one can touch our party. Our party MLAs are loyal to the party" said JD(S) leader Saravana.

Meanwhile, on the other side, BJP leader KS Eshwarappa issued a war cry as he expressed his confidence in his party forming the government in Karnataka.

"There is no doubt we will form the government. 100% we will do that. Wait and watch. Results came out only yesterday. It has been only a day. See what can happen in Karnataka in a day," Eshwarappa told ANI.

BJP observers for Karnataka, union ministers Dharmendra Pradhan, JP Nadda and Prakash Javadekar have also arrived at BJP office for legislative party meeting.

    Congress and JD(S) has to call for meeting and they have elect their leader first. Then they have to submit the letter of support to governor or produce the MLA's in front of him. Just by saying we are supporting each other, governor can't call for govt formation. After all, elected MLA's are not school children to listen to their bosses and they can choose the party they want. Lets see how many MLA will sign the petition supporting each other.

    its the same ball game if congress were in short of 6 to 10 MLAs... now BJP is in need of... so that are trading. Nothing to speak big on this drama.. All parties same. But now whole Karnataka knows Amith shah and Modi are the not the ones to sit quite in such situation unless they already have some plan in place and sure of majority in 2 / 3 days... it's all temporary joy which congress and JDS is enjoying... Kumaranna is dreaming about CM post and all. Shameless people, spoke publicly few days back as no plans to join any of the parties if lost ... etc etc... and next day accepting congress invitation... and these people talk abut morality, law , discipline and all... come on.

WHICHEVER IS THE PARTY WINNING UNDER DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY BY CLEAR FRAUD MEANS BJP IS FOOLING INDIAN PUBLIC .???????????ONE UNEDUCATED MAN IS FOOLING EDUCATED PEOPLE OF 150 CRORE INDIAN PUBLIC ?????????????? SAME THING HAPPENED IN GUJRAT ELECTIONS , MAHARASTRA AND UP ELECTIONS THROUGHOUT INDIA BJP IS WINNING BY FOOLING INDIAN PUBLIC . THIS IS VERY SERIOUS ISSUE UNDER DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY.ALL PUBL;IC SHOULD TAKE ACTION AGAINST THIS TYPE OF ELECTION.

    Interesting note as received on WhatsApp:

    Karma comes to haunt Congress in Karnataka after 22 years

    The year was 1996 & the Gujarat state BJP govt had just fallen thanks to Congress' Governor Krishnapal Singh. Vaghela along with his deputy Dilip Parikh (MLA from my maternal grandmother's birthplace, Dhandhuka) were the masterminds who had open support of Congress to split the BJP & bring the state BJP govt down. They along with Congress resorted to violence inside the state assembly where a no-confidence motion was to be voted & which in all probability was certain to be defeated. Speaker suspended entire opposition for a day. Motion was tabled & govt proved its numbers. But here comes the twist:

    
Congress Governor declares based on the pandemonium by Congress + Vaghela faction that the law & order machinery had collapsed in the entire state & that there was a constitutional crisis. After having surpassed his constitutional reach & jumping into the executive's functioning, he sent a report to the central govt. Within 15 minutes of the file reaching the then PM's table, state govt of Gujarat was dismissed & President's rule imposed. This immediately after having proved majority on the floor of the house. Vaghela later became CM for just a year & was succeeded by Parikh who remained CM for 2.5 months. Congress pulled out support from both. Fresh elections were held. Vaghela's strength reduced from 47 to 4, Congress was kicked out & Keshubhai was voted back as CM.

    How is this story relevant after 22 years in Karnataka? Because those quoting verses of morality, constitutional ethics & conventions were perpetrators of murdering democracy & numerous elected govts. right from Nehru.

    The Gujarat state BJP chief in 1996 was Vajubhai Vala who today is the Governor of Karnataka. And the PM who imposed President rule was none other than HD Deve Gowda. Cong-JDS today want Vajubhai to be merciful reminding him of his duty. But then there's Karma- Catches all, spares none.

    BJP's were fish without water.

    Now the Brhasta Jumla Ponds leaders trying to jump into the Kavery Water for Power.


    ONCE BJP MADE ALLIANCE WITH JDS AND FAILED.

    ACCORDING TO ME CONGRESS SHOULD NOT HAVE GIVEN SUPPORT TO JDS.

    BOTH BJP AND JDS SHOULD HAVE QUARRELLED EACH OTHER.

    AFTER CHAAIWAALA BECAME P.M., THE POLITICS OF THE INDIA IS LIKE A STREET FIGHTING DOGS.

    NO MORALE.
    NO ETHICS.
    TUGLAQ-RAJ,
    NO JOB TO THE YOUTHS.
    CORRUPTION AT THE TOP.
    JUDICIARY IS PURCHASED.
    HINDUSTAN HAS BECOME RAPISTAN.
    ELECTION COMMISSION IS A PUPPET.
    A CHAAIWAALA ILLITERATE HAS BECOME P.M.,
    INDIA'S ECONOMY IS SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROYED.
    BJP LEADERS HAVE BECOME MOTOR-MOUTH AND GUTTER-MOUTHS

    It is important for the Congress and JD(S) to approach the HC and seek a directive to the Governor to summon the assembly, get the protem speaker elected and conduct the oath taking process followed by election of the Speaker or Vote of Confidence immediately after the oath taking by members. ALL THIS IS TO BE DONE UNDER AN OBSERVER NOMINATED BY THE COURT. This is required to protect and preserve democracy and our Constitution.

    Yes. In all the examples, perhaps BJP was not ruled the states prior to elections. Why a chance for those who failed prior to elections ? A chance for the fresh ones definitely meaningful.

    Sadly democracy is getting murdered in India everyday.

Why now double standard policy and mockery of constitution?????
