Abhishek Manu Singhvi Mukul Rohatgi Attorney General KK Venugopal

A prior understanding with the JD (S) would have worked better...

For JD (S), the results bring the sweet taste of victory in more ways than one. Figures calculated by television channels suggest that Modi had a better strike rate in terms of votes than Gandhi, and that Modi's electioneering combined with that Amit Shah, the BJP president, and Yogi Adityanath, the controversial Hindu priest-turned politician who is chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, won widespread support, especially among young voters. Mayawati, in fact, addressed four rallies jointly with JD (S) leaders during the campaign.

Justice Bobde countered: "That is the other point".

"This attempt by the BJP to poach our legislators will backfire as there are people who are willing to leave the BJP to support us (JD-S)", he claimed, adding that the JD-S and the Congress together had the required majority to form the government. He has sworn-in as the new CM as the successor to the Congress CM Siddaramaiah.

"The BJP can go to any length to grab power". Janata Dal (Secular) accepted "unconditional" support from Congress, which was once a bitter foe.

While the JD (S) offered a blanket loan waiver to farmers, weavers and artisans, the Congress talked of an agro-infrastructure corridor for farmers. But he still has the power to win, which will be tested nationally in a year's time. Article 356 shall be used sparingly by the Centre, otherwise it is likely to destroy the constitutional structure between the Centre and the states.

The Lingayat leader, however, continued to be dogged by controversies, with the anti-corruption bureau launching proceedings against him in an alleged illegal land denotification case.

Analysts have highlighted the personal role of Modi in swaying the Karnataka electorate and taking the BJP to the verge of a historic swing.

He said, "The Congress should have allied with the JD (S)".

The Congress and the JD (S) had once before formed the government in Karntaka, in 2004. Because, the central government is in the hands of the BJP.
