Congress may move SC if Karnataka Governor invites BJP to form government

Prime News, National (Bengaluru), May 16:- The Congress is preparing to move Supreme Court if Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala invites Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to form the government in the state. The Congress has extended support to the JD(S) and has staked claim to form government in the state. They have agreed to project HD Kumaraswamy as the Chief Minister if the Congress-JD(S) are able to form a government in the state.

BJP has emerged as the single largest party with 104 seats while the Congress and the JDS have been reduced to 78 and 38 seats respectively. While the initial rounds of counting were underway in Karnataka, the numbers had suggested that the BJP was in a comfortable position, way past the half-way mark of 112. However, as final results emerged, the BJP missed touching the finish line by 8 seats. The last-minute changes in the numbers have given a hope to the Congress and the JDS combine of a possibility of forming a government while the BJP has been left in a precarious situation where it has to struggle to get the numbers on its side.
