SC orders Karnataka Assembly floor test at 4pm on Saturday By IANS Last updated

SC will hear the matter on May 18.

Shah countered Gandhi's allegations by tweeting: "The "Murder of Democracy" happens the minute a desperate Congress made an "opportunist" offer to the Janata Dal (Secular), not for Karnataka's welfare but for their petty political gains. We condemn it", said DMK President MK Stalin.

Senior leader KH Muniyappa, said, " This is not the system.

Sources in the Congress and BJP say that they have suggested candidates for Speaker, whose names will be sent to the Governor.

JD (S) national president H.D. Deve Gowda (C), speaks with Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad (L) as they stage a dharna in front of the Gandhi Statue against the Karnataka governor's order to invite BJP leader B.S. Yediyurappa to take oath as the new CM of the state.

Yeddyurappa took an oath in Kannada expressing confidence that majority will be proved before the stipulated time period.

Putin said the next task is "economic recovery and humanitarian assistance to the people who found themselves in a hard situation".

In his submissions on behalf of the Union government, attorney-general KK Venugopal tried to argue that "anti-defection law would apply on the MLA-elects only after they were sworn in on the floor of the House", to which justice Sikri responded with, "does that mean all the suitcase exchange is possible before they are sworn in?"

Kumaraswamy said that the JD-S will give security to its MLAs in the state.

"Yedyurappa's letter to the Governor will seal his fate. This Black Spot on India's democracy will be erased", he said on Twitter.

The new BJP government has 15 days to gather enough support to survive a vote in the legislature on its leadership. Yeddyurappa was administered the oath of office and secrecy by the Governor at a ceremony at Raj Bhavan amid loud cheering by his supporters.

Former minister Gaikhangam said, "BJP forming government in Karnataka is nothing but double standard". 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). The Congress and JD (S) are together and protested against the unconstitutional and undemocratic decision of the Governor which was also against the Supreme Court judgement delivered 14 months ago. "Congress and JD-S will protect all their MLAs in Karnataka", Kumaraswamy told the media here.
