BS Yeddyurappa has been sworn-in as the CM of Karnataka after the Supreme Court refused to stay Governor’s decision.
CM Yeddyurappa has said he was “100 percent sure” of winning the vote of confidence in the assembly and completing the five-year term.
“I am sure of winning the vote of confidence and my government completing five years,” said Yeddyurappa, who has been given 15-days window by Governor Vajubhai Vala in a controversial decision that has been challenged in the Supreme Court.
Many politicians took to Twitter and media to show their opinions on the matter.
Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati has said, what is happening is ‘not good for democracy.’
RAHUL GANDHI –The BJP’s irrational insistence that it will form a Govt. in Karnataka, even though it clearly doesn’t have the numbers, is to make a mockery of our Constitution.
This morning, while the BJP celebrates its hollow victory, India will mourn the defeat of democracy.
Who has the people’s mandate in Karnataka?
The BJP, which has won 104 seats.
Congress which dropped to 78 seats, whose own CM and Ministers lost by big margins.
JD(S) who won only 37 seats and lost their deposits on several others.
People are wise to realise.
The twitter war goes on…
The BJP has contended that it should be allowed to form the government as it is the single largest party. Now The Congress disputed the claim, saying that the precedent set by the BJP in Goa and Manipur last year. In both states, the Congress emerged as the single largest party but the BJP cobbled up alliances and was invited to form the government.
The BJP, after being invited by the Governor and being given 15 days to prove its numbers on the floor of the House, will be working hard to get around its deficit of eight.
“Our MLAs were offered Rs 100 crore and cabinet-rank posts to break away. I want to know whether that money will be black or white. Where has BJP stashed the money? Is it going to give it from its party fund?” JD(S) president H D Kumaraswamy said. “If they try to take our MLAs away, they should know we can do the same to them,’’ he said. JD(S) sources said four of its MLAs were approached by the BJP to break ranks.
