Now, RJD to stake claim to form govt in Bihar

Congress in Goa and Manipur RJD in Bihar say they'll stake claim to form government Congress flags- Representational image

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.

Declaring that he will parade his party's MLA before the Governor of Bihar, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said that Bihar Governor should follow the precedent of his Karnataka counterpart and dissolve the Nitish Kumar government. The Congress-JD (S) combine has perceived the Karnataka governor's invite to the BJP to form the government, in spite of a lack of simple majority, as a political and constitutional snub.

"We are the single largest party in the 60-member Manipur Assembly".

In the Goa election held in March previous year, the Congress had bagged 17 seats in the 40-member House, falling short of the majority figure by four seats.

Lalu Prasad Yadav's RJD had emerged as the single largest party in the 2015 Bihar assembly polls with 80 seats as against JDU's 70 seats.

The Congress also said it will ask the governor in Goa to invite it to form governments in the state and that it had the "strength", speaking after the BJP came to power in Karnataka despite not having the majority in the assembly.

The supreme court, stating unequivocally that it can not stop the governor, more on a principle of propriety than on any canon, but is sure to examine the "material" evidence.

The BJP, which got 13 seats, formed the government in alliance with Goa Forward Party and MGP, both of which had secured three seats each. In protest, we would be holding a day-long dharna on Friday.

In Manipur, former Chief Minister Ibobi Singh is likely to meet the Governor tomorrow.

The Congress won 78 seats and the JD (S) 37. "If we aren't united today then it was Bihar yesterday, Karnataka today, can be MP or Rajasthan tomorrow", he added.

He was referring to the decision of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to invite the BJP to form the government after the Assembly election results declared on Wednesday.

Karnataka's impact may spill over to at least four more states now, with the Congress and other opposition parties demanding that as single largest party, they be given a shot at power. The government was however toppled when Nitish Kumar withdrew support and joined the BJP. The aim of the Congress is to clearly drain the BJP of the vital mileage it gained, with the Centre's tacit support, by exposing the "double standards' played out in Goa, Manipur and Meghalaya. We are in majority in Goa as well as Bihar".

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

The BJP-led government in Goa is headed by Manohar Parrikar, who is now undergoing treatment in the U.S. for a pancreatic ailment.
