Why Congress-JD(S) sing, I love you (like I hate you)

Why Congress-JD(S) sing, I love you (like I hate you)

"The majority of voters have given us their mandate", said BJP's BS Yeddyurappa, after a meeting with the state Governor today. The Congress party polled 13.82 million, 38%, of the votes cast, but won only 78 seats.

Ghulam Nabi Azad accused BJP of threatening Congress MLAs.

Speaking to reporters here after his election as leader of the JD (S) Legislature Party, he alleged that BJP was making attempts to lure his party MLAs with monetary offers.

"I invite you (Yeddyurappa) to form the government and be sworn-in as the Chief Minister of Karnataka", a communique from Raj Bhavan said. The BJP is defending the Lok Sabha seat against a formidable coalition of smaller/regional parties - Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal - supported by the Congress. This year, the BJP decimated the Communist Party of India (Marxist) in Tripura and victorious supporters celebrated by knocking down a statue of Lenin statue.

"That could embolden the government to pursue reforms in future, including loosening foreign direct investment restrictions and moves towards privatization". If no party or coalition stakes a claim, the party securing the highest number of seats is given first preference by the governor, followed by a pre-poll alliance of parties and lastly, any post-poll alliances may be asked if till then the assembly remains hung. Earlier in the day, Yeddyurappa met Governor Vala and sought a week's time to stake claim to form the government. But it not so easy, as two parties have the necessary numbers.

Kumaraswamy said the Governor told the delegation that after consulting legal experts on the Supreme Court judgments, he would "come to a decision and inform us about it". The Congress party, sources said, has taken a decision to play second fiddle to the smaller party, and work instead for the general elections.

BJP emerged as the single largest party in Karnataka elections with 104 seats but failed to cross the halfway mark of 112 seats.

Steven Stamkos returns to ice after taking puck to face in practice
Losing tonight would undo all the work they did to get home ice advantage in the series, and win those first two games. The Lightning climbed back into the series with Tuesday's 4-2 win, improving to 4-1 on the road in the 2018 playoffs.

While old party hands in the Congress and the JD (S) had considered a post-election alliance well before polls, the possibility receded during the campaign when Rahul Gandhi repeatedly insinuated that the JD (S) had a tacit understanding with the BJP.

In fact, he was the first Congress leader to have opened the channel of communication with the JD (S) after it was clear that BJP would not get to the magic figure.

In a letter to Rajnath Singh, union minister of home affairs, Karandlaje has asserted, "Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Privacy are fundamental rights of any citizen as enshrined in the Constitution".

The BJP and Congress will next fight in December elections in three key states now ruled by the BJP - Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

Congress leaders said the party, by extending support to JD (S), although belatedly, was sending out a message of flexibility. On social media, Kerala Tourism has already asked Karnataka to consider God's Own Country.

If it forms a government in Karnataka, the BJP and its allies would govern 22 of India's 29 states.

However, the loss on Tuesday marked a blow to Congress's claim of being the " natural" leader of a "secular" front. The problem with the party is that they want everything.
