Security outside the Eagleston resort, where Congress MLAs are holed up, has been removed hours after BS Yeddyurappa took oath as chief minister of Karnataka on Thursday. On the other hand, the BJP, which emerged as the single-largest party in the just-concluded Karnataka polls, accused the Congress of trying to "loot the mandate" by seeking to stitch a post-poll alliance with the JD (S).

Singhvi contended that while even imposition of President's Rule under Article 356 is subject to judicial review and wondered why the Governor's decision can not be subjected to judicial review.

However, the Congress, which tied up with the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) to keep the BJP out of power cried foul and moved the Supreme Court against the "encounter of Constitution".

Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala said Thursday that Karnataka Governor's action of inviting the BJP, who does not have simple majority to form government, is an action that shatters democracy. We will have to wait and see who among the members will be chosen into the Ministers' cabinet.

Former Manipur Chief Minister and CLP leader Okram Ibobi Singh has sought an appointment with the Manipur Governor on Friday to demand the dissolution of the present government based on the developments which has taken place in Karnataka.

"Someone said we are giving horses a bad name by calling it horse trading".

As suspense over government formation in Karnataka continues, the Congress, anxious about losing its lawmakers, has chose to move them to a five-star resort.

ANI later quoted JDS MLA Shivarame Gowda saying that "some of Congress and JD (S) MLAs are going to Kochi and some to Hyderabad".

Kumaraswamy, whose claim to form the government was ignored by the governor, added that giving a party without majority the opportunity to form government and giving it 15 days for a floor test was probably a first in the country.

#10: 30 AM: Congress indulging in nefarious activities: BS Yeddyurappa has become Karnataka CM third time. "Congress and JD-S will protect all their MLAs in Karnataka", Kumaraswamy told the media here. Singh could not be reached for comment, but he is not one of the signatories in Congress letter of support that was submitted to the governor on Tuesday. Congress president Rahul Gandhi said India mourns the defeat of democracy. Jethmalani said that Governor's decision has caused disrespect to the constitutional office that he resides in.
