Black Spot On My Father's Career Because Of My Decision To Go With The BJP In 2004: HD Kumaraswamy

JD leader HD Kumaraswamy

Federal Ministers Prakesh Javadekar, Dharmendra Pradhan and JP Nadda, plus Yeddyurappa and other state leaders were working on options that include MLAs from the Congress and the JD (S) being absent when the trust vote is conducted; that would reduce the mark required for a simple majority.

He said in Jharkhand in 2005, Goa in 2017 and in the Jagadambika Pal case in Uttar Pradesh, the court advanced the date of floor test from seven days to 48 hours. "People of India have repeatedly rejected the leadership of Congress President Rahul Gandhi and today's victory only confirms the nation has no intention of giving Congress another chance to ruin the country", BJP state President Nityanand Rai said. The party has also managed to substantially improve its seat count and vote share from the 2013 assembly election.

Earlier in the day, the JD (S) in its meeting chose Kumaraswamy unanimously as the leader of the legislative party leader.

At the same time, Congress and JD (S) MLAs have been protesting at the Gandhi Statue at the Vidhan Soudha premises. Nor did his voice matter in political strategy or backroom maneuvering at national level but as luck would have it, the so-called secularists joined hands with outside support of the Congress to prevent BJP from taking power.

The BJP rules 21 out of India's 29 states while Congress controls only three - Punjab, Puducherry and Mizoram, which together account for just 2.5 percent of India's 1.25 billion people. "Some people have helped BJP by trying to destroy our party". In SR Bommai vs Union of India, which went into the use of Article 356 of the Constitution by the President to dismiss a state government, the Supreme Court made it clear that decisions of the President under Article 356 should be fair and he should keep in mind the great political and constitutional effect of exercising this extraordinary power. While Azad then spoke to Sonia about the prospective alliance, Mayawati called up JD (S) chief HD Deve Gowda and convinced him.

The three-judge bench, comprising justices A K Sikri, S A Bobde and Ashok Bhushan, said they are wondering whether the Supreme Court can restrain the governor that might lead to constitutional vacuum in the state.

BJP president Amit Shah is known for sharp political strategies, and the party is confident they will drum up the numbers to achieve a majority. "I'm also telling the Governor to not take any decision which encourages horse-trading", said Kumaraswamy. Some 15 plus Congress MLAs are yet to reach Bangalore from their respective constituencies making themselves vulnerable to poaching from the BJP.

No party achieved a clear majority in the election results announced on Tuesday, leading to uncertainty over the formation of the next government.

It is important to analyse if what the Karnataka governor has done is rational and fair and not arbitrary and malafide. "I will inform you after getting a letter from Governor".

The Congress and the JD (S) have a history of tripping each other up politically, although the JD (S) has not done a very good job of keeping its word to the BJP either.
