Invite us to form government in Goa, Congress tells Governor Mridula Sinha

Congress cites Goa Mizoram Meghalaya in staking claim for Karnataka with JD

After Congress' annoucement that they will stake claim to form government in Goa, Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejaswi Yadav on Thursday said that the party MLAs will meet Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik at 1 p.m. on Friday, May 17 to stake claim to form the goverment in the State. "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", said Tejashwi Yadav. "The rule should be equal for everyone but what we are seeing here is that rules are being bent for a single party", Leader of the opposition in Bihar assembly Tejashwi Yadav said in a tweet on Thursday. This reasoning - that the single-largest party be invited to form government - is now being used by the Congress and the RJD to advance their claims in Goa and Bihar respectively. The RJD, with 80 seats was the single largest party in the State.

The BJP had previous year cobbled up a post-poll alliance with regional parties such as the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party and Goa Forward Party besides bringing in independents to form the government in the 40-member assembly.

Their reasoning? The drama in Karnataka, where Governor Vajubhai Vala invited the BJP to form government even though the post-poll alliance of Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) claimed to have the backing of 117 MLAs, five more than the required number of 112. Why two critieria for two states?

The BJP, which had bagged 13 seats, firmed up an alliance with Goa Forward Party and Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party, both of which had secured three seats each, and also took support of three Independents.

"We would be holding a one-day dharna tomorrow against the murder of democracy in Karnataka".

The Average Directional Index or ADX is a technical analysis indicator used to describe if a market is trending or not trending. Williams %R is a popular technical indicator created by Larry Williams to help identify overbought and oversold situations.

Now, as the BJP's past action boomerangs on itself and with the Congress going all out to consolidate its shrinking power-holds (the party is in power in Punjab and Puducehrry alone), all eyes are on the Supreme Court's verdict of Friday.

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav declaring that he will parade his party's MLA before the Governor of Bihar. Only then, if the government fail to prove a majority will the governor dissolve the assembly and call for fresh elections. In July 2017, JD (U) leader Nitish Kumar broke the alliance and tied up with the BJP to continue as chief minister. The governor should invite us to form the government in Goa as per the precedent set by her Karnataka counterpart, said Kavlekar, the Leader of Opposition in the Goa Assembly. "Why the double standard? It's dictatorship by BJP", he said addressing a press conference.

"We will prove our majority on the floor of the House within a day". "The numbers will have to be proven on the floor of the House and we have that with us", he said.

Kavlekar said that in the absence of the chief minister in the state for the last two months, there is no governance in place.
