Taking to twitter, Mr Gandhi said, ‘The BJP’s irrational insistence that it will form a Govt in Karnataka, even though it clearly doesn’t have the numbers, is to make a mockery of our Constitution. This morning, while the BJP celebrates its hollow victory, India will mourn the defeat of democracy.’
Mr Vala on Wednesday night invited the BJP to form the government in Karnataka despite the claims by the Congress and JD(S) that their coalition has the majority in the newly-constituted Assembly.
The Congress has termed the decision of the Governor as a ‘murder of democracy’.
It has charged the Governor with acting like a ‘BJP puppet’.
