K'taka polls: Congress leaders allege BJP of poaching MLAs K'taka polls: Congress leaders allege BJP of poaching MLAs

"I want to know whether this is black or white money", he told a press conference.

So, even if the BJP, which is in power at the Centre and has a politically smart governor Vajubhai Vala in Karnataka, the Party will not be able to see itself being invited to form the government. Replying to a question, he rejected outright the possibility of forming a coalition government with the BJP.

Of the 222 assembly segments in the state, the BJP has won 104, Congress 78 and JD-S 38, including one by its ally Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). The JD (S) has accepted the support.

By mid-afternoon the Congress had taken 28 seats and was leading in 49, while the regional Janata Dal (Secular) had seven seats and led in another 31. We are not in the habit of practising horsetrading.

Bitter rivals in Bengal, the Left leaders and Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee, both backed the Congress-JD (S) alliance against the BJP.

Kumaraswamy after meeting governor Vajubhai Vala on Wednesday said, "We heard that they are trying to do Operation Kamal now also".

Karandlaje on Wednesday May 16 evening accused the Congress of playing dirty politics and tapping the phones of three BJP MPs. "Narendra Modi is encouraging horsetrading". Kumaraswamy, who has been offered the chief minister's post by the Congress, said: "I have reports that BJP is offering Rs 25 crore to lure MLAs to quit and seek re-election on its symbol". "If we are not, people will beat us", he told TV channel India Today. It refused to stay BSY's oath-taking and directed him to produce the letter written to the Governor on May 15 where he staked his claim to form government. I have given the letter to the Governor and he would call me.

The BJP had emerged as the frontrunner in the elections grabbing 104 seats. The Congress-JD (S) combine has submitted a list of 117 MLA-elects supporting it, to the governor.

Speculations are also rife about Congress MLAs already booking rooms at the Eagleton resort on the outskirts of Bengaluru.

Earlier, Senior Karnataka BJP leader and party spokesman Suresh Kumar said in a tweet that BJP legislature party leader BS Yeddyurappa would be sworn in as chief minister tomorrow, but deleted it later.

" While BJP banks on Guv Vala, Congress on Kumaraswamy " Yeddyurappa hopes to battle it out in the Assembly.

Since yesterday, all three parties have been approaching the Governor with their claims of majority.

The coming together of Congress and JD (S) in Karnataka has indications of a possible coming together of Opposition parties to counter the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

INC filed a plea against the governor's decision to invite BJP's post-poll alliance in Goa. We have full faith in him that he will not do injustice.
