Karnataka Results: Both BJP, Cong-JD(S) Combine Stake Claim to Form Govt Governor Vajubhai Vala now has the critical task of choosing which party to call first to prove their majority

@otuslive

THE BHARATIYA Janata Party juggernaut has stopped short of a majority in Karnataka. The voters have delivered a fractured mandate with the BJP emerging as the single largest party.

But simple math points to a comfortable majority for the Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) alliance.  And to keep the BJP away, Congress has now said that it will support the JD(S) to form the next government.

Governor Vajubhai Vala now has the critical task of choosing which party to call first to prove their majority after delegations of both BJP and JD(S)-Congress alliance met him to stake their claim.
