Opposition plans pan-India protest over Yeddyurappa's swearing

SC calls BJP's bluff says Rahul

Pioneered by late Andhra Pradesh chief minister N.T. Rama Rao around 1984, resort politics has been used by political parties in states like Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat.

However, the Governor sided with the BJP and has asked it to form a government and prove its majority within 15 days in the assembly, according to a copy of a letter posted by the party on Twitter.

Ibobi Singh said, "If BJP is given chance in Karnataka by virtue of being the single largest party, Congress in Manipur must also get the chance to form the government". It was already rumoured that the governor had taken a decision to this effect much before it was finally confirmed with a communiqué by the Raj Bhavan around 9pm on May 16.

The 75-year-old Lingayat strongman took the oath alone, in a reflection of continued uncertainty over the longevity of his term in office after the newly formed JD (S)-Congress alliance knocked the door of the Supreme Court to stall government formation.

The BJP emerged as the single largest party in state elections in Karnataka, winning 104 seats in the 225-member assembly but falling short of an outright majority.

"Someone said we are giving horses a bad name by calling it horse trading". But in Karnataka the single largest party has been called by the Governor to form government.

ANI later quoted JDS MLA Shivarame Gowda saying that "some of Congress and JD (S) MLAs are going to Kochi and some to Hyderabad". "The governor's action is undemocratic and unconstitutional.he is indirectly encouraging horse-trading", Yeddyurappa's predecessor Siddramaiah said.

The SC Bench, comprising Justices A.K. Sikri, S.A. Bobde and Ashok Bhushan, was hearing the petitions by Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President Dr. G. Parameshwara and JD-S President H.D. Kumaraswamy.

Arguing for the Union of India, Attorney General K.K. Venugopal said: "we don't know what happened in exchanges between Governor and Yeddyurappa, or what he has said in his letter".

Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah criticised each other over the outcome of the hung Assembly in Karnataka and attempts by rival political outfits to stake claim to the government.
