BS Yeddyurappa Sworn in as the 23rd Chief Minister of Karnataka

Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala administering oath to BS Yeddyurappa as Chief Minister of Karnataka during his swearing ceremony at Raj Bhavan in Bengaluru on May 17, 2018.

JD (S) leader H.D. Kumaraswamy on Thursday said the Narendra Modi government wants to demolish democracy in the country and accused the Centre of using agencies like the Enforcement Directorate to threaten MLAs of the Congress-JD (S) combine in Karnataka.

The BJP emerged as the single largest party in state elections in Karnataka, winning 104 seats in the 225-member assembly but falling short of an outright majority.

One independent, R Shankar, who the Congress had vowed his support to its coalition with the JDS, was seen with the BJP on Wednesday before once again returning to the former's fold. "I am not going to wait till 15 days, the time period Governor Vajubhai Vala gave, to prove majority in Assembly". In comments by some leaders, including JD (S) leader HD Kumaraswamy, Operation Kamala was mentioned in the context to the tussle between the single largest party and its opponents to form the government in the state. He requested that the current government here should be dissolved and the single largest party, RJD, be invited to form the government.

In such a situation, the majority will automatically be proved in the Assembly and Yeddyurappa would have to resign from his post as Chief Minister. While the BJP's Guttedar Subhash Rukmayya in Aland beat incumbent MLA B.R. Patil, who had shifted from the Karnataka Janata Party to the Congress, by 695 votes, Kungol, Pavagada and Hirekurur were all won by Congress candidates on margins lower than 634 votes.

"Yedyurappa's letter to the Governor will seal his fate".

Commonly known in political parlance as "horse trading", the Congress and JD (S) are taking no chances to thwart any attempts by the BJP to get at least eight seats to cross the halfway mark.

Shastri said the result also cast the Congress party deeper into electoral decline. RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav has also made a decision to meet Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik to stake claim.

Former minister Gaikhangam said, "BJP forming government in Karnataka is nothing but double standard".
