RJD, Congress to stake claim to power in Bihar, Goa

Panaji/Patna: The Congress in Goa and the RJD in Bihar on Thursday said they would ask the Governors of their respective states to give them a chance to form governments the same way that BJP leader B.S. Yeddyurappa was given in Karnataka as leader of the single-largest party. The Congress central leadership backed the move, saying that there cannot be two sets of rules and two Constitutions in the country while the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) termed it 'political drama' and 'acts of desperation' on the part of Congress. The BJP also alleged that the Congress and the Janata Dal-Secular had confined their MLAs in Karnataka and accused them of playing politics of fear. Congress Goa unit President Girish Chodankar told reporters in Panaji that if the Karnataka Governor can invite the BJP as the single-largest party to form the new government in the southern state, why can't Goa Governor Mridula Sinha invite the Congress as per the logic since it was the single-largest party in Goa after the Assembly elections in 2017.
