Karnataka fallout: Congress to meet Goa governor Friday to protest 'double standards'

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Thursday said he will meet Bihar Governor Satyapal Malik on Friday to stake claim to form the government as the leader of the single largest party in the state Assembly.

The BJP, which emerged as the single largest party with 104 seats in the 222-member Karnataka Assembly, was invited by the governor despite the JD (S)-Congress combine staking claim by citing the support of 117 MLAs.

In Bihar the RJD which is the single largest party formed the government with the JD (U).

In the Assembly elections held in February past year, the Congress had bagged 17 seats, becoming the single largest party in the 40-member House but falling short of the majority figure by four seats.

The BJP got 12 seats while Congress emerged as the single-largest party with 16 MLAs. "In 2017, we won 17 seats & were single largest party & continue to be but Governor chose to invite the BJP which had 13 seats".
