'Largest party fever' reaches Bihar, Goa: RJD, Congress stake claim

Congress legislators blame Siddaramaiah for Karnataka defeat

Meanwhile, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said at a press conference that party MLAs would meet Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik at 1 pm on Friday, ANI reported. "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", Yadav said.

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.

"In 2017, we won 17 seats and were single largest party and continue to be but Governor chose to invite the BJP, which had 13 seats".

He claimed that organisations like the Election Commission and CBI are being blackmailed into doing the BJP's bidding and questioned how BS Yeddyurappa asked for 7 days to prove a government, but ended up getting 15 days instead.

Like in Goa, the RJD will attempt to use the "largest party" claim to expose fissures in the JD (U)-BJP government, particularly over communal incidents in recent months. "So, we now appeal to the Governor to invite us to form govt", said Yatish Naik of the Congress party.

All 16 Goa Congress MLAs will march to Raj Bhavan calling on Governor tomorrow to stake a claim for government formation claiming to be the single largest party. The saffron party, with 21 seats, joined hands with National People's Party (four seats), Naga People's Front (four seats) and the Lok Janshakti Party (one seat) to form the first BJP government in the state. "While in Karnataka the Governor has invited the single-largest party, in Goa too, the same precedent should be followed", he said.

NCLT allows Ericsson insolvency plea against RCom
After making a weak opening, the stock further tanked 20 per cent to Rs 9.95 on the BSE. The company shut down its consumer mobile business late a year ago .

It needs to be underlined that the Constitution does not provide any specific guidelines to Governors for the appointment of a chief minister in a situation when no party has a clear-cut majority.

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 the backing of 117 MLAs, five more than the required number of 112.

The Congress is giving an "opportunity to Goa governor to rectify the mistake which she did last year", Kavelkar said.

Following this, Manohar Parrikar, who was then serving as the defence minister was rushed back to Goa to return as the Chief Minister. Kavlekar said in the absence of the chief minister, there was no proper government in the state.

According to the sources, Goa Congress in-charge Chella Kumar, along with other party leaders will leave for Goa on Thursday.

The RJD holds 80 seats in the 243-seat Bihar Assembly, whereas the ruling coalition parties Janata Dal (United) and the BJP hold 70 seats and 53 seats each respectively, totaling to 123 seats. "Why (was) RJD was given just twi days time to form the government but BJP was given 15 days time to prove majority?"
