Congress To Demand The "Karnataka Model" In Goa, Manipur, Meghalaya

BJP takes top spot in Karnataka Assembly but behind Congress in vote share

He said, "We also request the Bihar Governor to dissolve the state government and like in Karnataka invite the single largest party, which in Bihar is the RJD".

Kavlekar said the Goa Governor should follow the example set by her Karnataka counterpart and invite the single-largest party to form the government and thus "correct her mistake of March 12, 2017".

"If BJP considers it correct to form a government in Karnataka by virtue of being the single largest party in the state, it should consider its decision wrong not to give an opportunity to RJD to form next government in Bihar following resignation of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar previous year as it was the single largest party in the state", Mr Yadav, also leader of opposition in Bihar Assembly argued.

On the time given to Yeddyurappa to prove majority, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader said, "How will BJP prove majority?"

Goa Congress Legislature Party chief Chandrakant Kavlekar said the party would stake claim on Friday by submitting to Governor Mridula Sinha a formal letter containing signatures of all 16 party MLAs.

Hours after BS Yeddyurappa was sworn in by Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala on the basis of the BJP being the single largest party in the state, in neighbouring Goa, Congress jumped to apply the same logic. This is gundagardi of BJP; it will be called as a black day in democracy if BJP is allowed to form the government in Karnataka. "Like in Karnataka the governor should invite the single largest party, which in Bihar is the RJD. So we now appeal to the governor to invite us to form government", said Yatish Naik of the Congress.

Shahin Sadafi, chairman of local campaign group Grenfell United, said the report had left residents "disappointed and saddened". The causes of the Grenfell Tower fire are the subject of an inquiry which is due to start public hearings next week.

The Congress said it had the "strength" to form a government in Goa and pointed to Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala who invited BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa to take over as chief minister after his party got the most seats in elections but fell short of a majority. In Karnataka, Governor invited BJP as they are the single largest party. However, he did not specify how the party would muster a majority. In Karnataka, Governor invited BJP as they are the single largest party. As per reports, Congress' Goa in-charge, Challa Kumar along with other party leaders will be meeting the Governor of Goa on Friday, May 18.

The BJP-led government in Goa is headed by Manohar Parrikar, who is now undergoing treatment in the USA for his pancreatic ailment.

Kavlekar said that in absence of the Chief Minister in the state for last two months, there is no government in place. "The Congress would be able to provide a stable government in Goa", the CLP leader added.

Lalu Prasad Yadav's RJD had emerged as the single largest party in the 2015 Bihar assembly polls with 80 seats as against JDU's 70 seats. Meghalaya elections were held in February 2018.

The court gave four days to Manohar Parrikar to prove his majority. JD (U) won 71 seats, while the BJP won 53.
