JD(S) move SC against nomination of Anglo-Indian MLA in K'taka Assembly

"We have full faith in the Supreme Court".

"It is submitted that the power of the Governor under Article 333 can not be exercised on the aid and advice of Respondent No 3 who is yet to undertake the floor test".

4pm: Congress' chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala says his party will protest the Governor's decision tomorrow by holding dharnas across the country. It won't be easy to form the government.

It also ordered authorities including the DGP to ensure law and order outside the Karnataka Assembly. The combine had claimed before Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to have the requisite numbers to form government in the state.

The bench said ultimately the question is about majority which has to be proved in the floor test. It remains to be seen whether Jethmalani, who had announced his retirement from the legal profession a year ago, would be permitted to appear before the bench of Justices Sikri, Bobde and Bhushan on Friday (May 18) when it resumes hearing the petition filed by the Congress challenging Governor Vala's decision.

In turn, the BJP has alleged that the Congress forged signatures of many of its legislators while submitting party's list of MLAs to the Governor.

A successful outcome is key to rejuvenate party members and reverse PM Modi's declining popularity after local defeats in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Rajasthan. There was no pre-poll alliance.

A hung verdict with the Bharatiya Janata Party as the single largest party, a hurried post-poll pact between the Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) and ensuing chaos - for the electorate in Karnataka, the results on Tuesday of the Assembly elections were nearly a repeat of 2004, when the same key players had found themselves in these very positions. The bench asked the attorney-general to produce the two letters given to the Governor on May 15 and 16.

Venugopal told the bench that Yeddyurappa was being represented by Rohatgi, who placed the letters before the bench.

The JD (S) leader said all parties other than BJP should join hands and fight it out together.

"If a Governor dared to make a one-man party the chief minister, we cannot injunct the CM from taking the oath but we can stay his government from functioning", Bobde said.

The JDS and Congress had moved the Supreme Court after Governor Vajubhai Vala invited the BJP to form the government first.

The Congress had approached Supreme Court Chief Justice Dipak Misra for an urgent hearing on the matter on, however the apex court did not put a stay on the swearing-in ceremony.

The BJP has emerged as the single largest party in Karnataka but one thing is clear that they are readying themselves for the 2019 battle. It also asked BSY to produce before it the letters he wrote to the state's Governor claiming support of MLAs for forming the government.
