Win some, lose some: Karnataka elections were the semi-final that wasn't

The idea is to rescue him from the demagogue. If it were, then there are more worries than cheers for the ruling BJP. Ever since Rahul Gandhi called JD (S) the B-team of BJP during his election campaigning, many expected a BJP-JD (S) alliance that could let bygones be bygones.

He thanked the voters of the Karnataka state. To the Congress, retaining Karnataka is a question of life and death. However, when the votes were counted on Tuesday, it became apparent that Nepal's gods were ambivalent. A section of the community has been demanding that the sect be identified as a separate religion, distinct from Hinduism. There are 3 of them, Modi, Shah & Vala. Modi looked distracted when he delivered the "victory speech" at the BJP headquarters last night. If Yeddyurappa gets to form the government, as is widely expected, then it would make it even more hard for BJP to find new allies in the state.

The BJP had emerged as the frontrunner in the elections grabbing 104 seats.

However, they are still short of the halfway mark of 112 by seven MLAs.

Yet, all is not lost. It is also leaning on the Sarkaria Commission (which dwelled on Centre-State relations) which says that the single largest party should be invited to form the government.

Bafana hold firm in latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings
Among Africa's World Cup-bound sides‚ Tunisia remain number one on the continent (and 14 in the world)‚ followed by Senegal (28). There was no movement in the top 47 with Germany, Brazil and Belgium retaining the first three spots on the ranking.

Ironically, it seems BJP will lose out the chance to form this government in Karnataka because of a convention laid out in Karnataka in 1989. The bidding in the market is about to begin.

Arguing on behalf of the Congress and JD (S), Singhvi told the bench, constituted by Chief Justice Dipak Misra to hear the matter, that the governor has negated democracy by not calling the alliance commanding majority in Karnataka.

Nonetheless, the unmistakable bottom line would still be that BJP could be in serious trouble in the 2019 poll.

According to the latest results declared by the Election Commission, Congress has won 74 seats and is leading in four, while JD (S) has won 37. Two parties have come together.

In doing so, the Governor has gone with the convention of inviting the single largest party and has overlooked the post-poll JD (S)-Congress alliance, which gave the letter of support to him on Wednesday.

However, BSNL recently introduced another recharge pack of Rs 429 which is comparatively better than what RJio is offering. And of course, once the limits are exhausted, the customers will be charged at the standard rates (10 paise per minute).

President H.D. Kumaraswamy speaks to media after the legislative party meeting in Bangalore on Wednesday. "Both Kumaraswamy and Congress are hungry for power". The battle for Karnataka is on and it will be interesting to see to wins the race.

Kabil Sibal, who spoke after Chidambaram said that the BJP is trying to poach MLA's from other parties and that the BKP should not get time to poach MLA's from other parties.

Finally, stemming from the above, the BJP desperately needs to make alliances of its own to face the 2019 poll.

This refers to "Three Karnataka lessons for national politics" (May 16).
