Congress to observe 'Save Democracy Day' across country on Friday

In a tweet, he also expressed hope that the new BJP government in the state under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's guidance will fulfil people's aspirations. The post-poll alliance partners even submitted a list of 117 MLAs to the governor. Now all eyes fall on Raj Bhavan to decide which side will be invited to prove its majority on the floor of the assembly.

The apex court bench of Justices AK Sikri, SA Bobde and Ashok Bhushan, which gave the Attorney General 48 hours to produce the two letters written by the newly sworn-in Karnataka Chief Minister to the Governor staking his claim to form a government, will resume hearing on a petition filed by the Congress seeking a stay on Yeddyurappa's swearing-in. The top court, which started the hearing around 2 a.m. local time Thursday and ended about at 5.25 a.m., said the formation of the government is subject to final outcome of the case.

"There is only one way a party which got 104 will get 113..."

When Singhvi and Rohatgi indulged in unpleasant exchanges, Sikri asked them to stop immediately. BJP leaders said efforts are on to prove their majority by contacting Congress and JD (S) leaders but if the party fails to achieve it, then it would use the situation to accuse the Congress and the JD (S) of stealing the mandate of the people and denying a Lingayat leader the chance to be the CM.

Meanwhile, senior lawyer Ram Jethmalani on Thursday approached the Supreme Court in his personal capacity against Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala's decision of inviting BJP leader B.S. Yeddyurappa to form a new government in the state despite being eight short of a simple majority in the assembly.

In the Karnataka poll results, the BJP secured 104 seats, while the Congress and the JDS won 78 and 37 seats respectively.

The two parties had earlier approached the state's governor in attempt to rule as a coalition.

VIRAL: What do you hear... Yanny or Laurel?
In addition, perception can be influenced by multiple factors such as age, sex or native language of the listener, she explained. The Green Needle/Brainstorm auditory illusion has been popping up all over the web in the wake of the Laurel and Yanny trick.

The Karnataka Speaker election can very well become a trust vote of the Yeddyurappa government. Supreme Court can change interim order tomorrow after seeing documents. It is due to sit again on Friday morning.

BJP president Amit Shah today described the swearing-in of B S Yeddyurappa as the Karnataka Chief Minister a "victory of every Kannadiga" who voted to "uproot the corrupt and divisive politics" of the Congress.

"For the BJP, while an outright win would have been ideal, the current numbers are still a positive and critical indicator of their standing", Kumar said.

To a layman like me, it struck me as odd Abhishek Singhvi referring to the Sarkaria Commission's recommendations since it was already being cited in the media as part of BJP's defence of the governor's stand.

As suspense over government formation in Karnataka continues, the Congress, anxious about losing its lawmakers, has made a decision to move them to a five-star resort.

"Nothing is finalized yet, but all (Congress legislators) are at Eagleton now", Dinesh Gundu Rao, Congress working president said on Thursday.
