Amid much speculation that whom would invite by Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to form government in Karnataka, the Congress is trained guns against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), claiming that the JDS-Congress combine has the right to be given a chance first.
In its fresh attempt to fortify the argument, the Congress has attacked via a tweet posted by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley wherein the BJP strongman had stated that if elected MLAs form a coalition, the Governor would be right in inviting them to form government in the Cauvery disputed state. This tweet send away the argument of the BJP that the Governor has to first invite the single largest party to form government in case of hung Assembly.
In 2017 Assembly elections When Manipur and Goa failed to give clear majority to any party, the BJP had raced in front of the Congress to form post-poll coalitions and form governments in the state. Mitigating the move by the Governors of the states to invite BJP-led coalition and not Rahul-led-Congress, which had emerged as the single largest party, FM Jaitley had tweeted, "In a hung assembly, if majority of the elected MLAs form a coalition, the Governor would be constitutionally right in inviting the leader of the majority coalition to form the government and prove their majority within a short period."
