Karnataka Governor should invite post-poll coalition to form government: Congress


New Delhi: Talking to the media, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said that the post-poll coalition of the Congress and Janata Dal-Secular of HD Deve Gowda was"poised for a majority"in the new Karnataka Assembly. The Congress leader said that the Congress had emerged as the single largest party in the three states but the post-poll coalitions involving the BJP were invited to form the governments there.
"The country's law, the Constitution and the standards of morality are very clear that any coalition -- even if it is post-poll coalition and if it has the full majority -- then the Governor has no other option but to invite that coalition to form the government,"Surjewala said."Hence, we expect that the Congress-JD-S alliance will be very soon invited to form the Karnataka government according to past precedents, Supreme Court judgments and established constitutional traditions,"he said.
