Two ‘missing’ Congress legislators show up in Assembly to support party
"Democracy wins. Congratulations Karnataka. Congratulations Deve Gowdaji, Kumaraswamyji, Congress and others. Victory of the 'regional' front," Mamata tweeted.
BJP’s Yeddyurappa said in the Karnataka assembly ahead of the trust vote that “till the last breath of my life, I will work for the people”
Tejashwi Yadav along with his party MLAs was scheduled to march to the Raj Bhavan here this afternoon.
The apex court's order for floor test comes a day after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader took oath as the Chief Minister.
Gandhi said that the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) bluff has been called out by the court and the party will now try to form a government through money and muscle.
The SC is hearing a petition filed by the Congress-JD(S) combine against the decision of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to invite the BJP to form the government.
The Congress also shifted its MLAs to Hyderabad in a separate luxury bus to prevent the BJP from approaching them.
The Chief Minister, who is a senior Congress leader, expressed concern over the "brazen shamelessness with which the Governor had murdered India's democracy and Constitution by calling a minority party (BJP) to form the government in Karnataka".
Excited over Yeddyurappa, 75, becoming Chief Minister for the third time, celebrations broke out in front of Raj Bhavan, at the party's office in the city's northwest suburb and many districts across the southern state.
