Similarly, former Bihar deputy CM and leader of the Rashtriya Janata Dal Tejashwi Yadav has said he will meet with Governor Satya Pal Malik and stake claim to form government in the state, now ruled by a Janata Dal (United) and Bharatiya Janata Party alliance. 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".

The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader said that if the Bharatiya Janata Party was invited by the Karnataka Governor to form the government on grounds that it was the single largest party, then then RJD also had the right to form the government.

Chandrakant Kavlekar, chief of Congress legislature party in Goa, said Governor Mridula Sinha should follow the precedent set by her Karnataka counterpart and invite the single largest party to form the government and "correct her mistake of March 12, 2017".

Kavlekar said the Congress would meet Goa Governor Mridula Sinha on Friday and submit a letter containing signatures of all 16 party MLAs, PTI reported.

With the BJP winning 104 seats in 224-assembly in the Karnataka elections, Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala invited its legislative party leader BS Yeddyurappa to form the government and prove majority within 15 days.

The Congress won 17 seats in the 40-member Goa assembly and emerged as the largest party in Goa elections in March 2017, falling short of the majority figure by four seats.

When the BJP staked a claim in Karnataka to form the government, the Congress and JD (S) cited the Goa example. Three Independent MLAs supported the BJP too.

The BJP which was not the single largest party in Goa forged an alliance with the MGP and formed the government. As a result, Yeddyurappa was sworn in as the Karnataka chief minister Thursday morning amid protests by JD (S) and Congress leaders at Raj Bhawan. "[Party President] Amit Shah has only one formula - horse trading, or using central agencies against MLAs of other parties", Yadav said.

"We would be holding a 1-day dharna tomorrow against the murder of democracy in Karnataka".

Addressing press conference, Yadav said that they will demand the dissolution of current government and they be invited to form the government.

The Constitution is under "severe attack" and an atmosphere of fear prevailed in the country, Congress president said, likening the situation to Pakistan and some African countries under "dictatorship".

Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala has given the BJP an unusual 15 days to prove its majority.

Kavlekar said that in absence of the Chief Minister in the state for last two months, there is no government in place. "Why did the BJP come in through back door to form government with JD (U) in Bihar?" he asked.
