BS Yeddyurappa meets Governor for making govt in K'taka
The Congress has dramatically backed the JD (S) for chief ministership and both parties are likely to parade their MLAs before Governor Vajubhai Vala today morning. When a new assembly is elected, but the vote for the speaker or deputy speaker has not taken place, the pro-tem speaker ins chosen.
He said in Jharkhand in 2005, Goa in 2017 and in the Jagadambika Pal case in Uttar Pradesh, the court advanced the date of floor test from seven days to 48 hours.

The BJP is eight short of the 112-halfway mark needed for a simple majority. In effect, it comes to mean that the ruling party (or the main party in the case of coalition) running the central government tries to find a constitutional and legal justification to grab power in a state even if it does not have a clear majority in the Assembly. He said JD (S) leader HD Kumaraswamy with Congress has 116 MLAs. The BJP allegedly engineered the defection of 4 JD (S) and 3 Congress MLAs and successfully staked claim to form the government in the state.
At the same time, Congress and JD (S) MLAs have been protesting at the Gandhi Statue at the Vidhan Soudha premises. A PIL filed by Shashidhar Belagumbe, an advocate in Karnataka, alleged that the JD (S) leader married the actress while he was still married to his first wife, Anitha.
Congress leaders said the party, by extending support to JD (S), although belatedly, was sending out a message of flexibility.
It was after returning from Raj Bhavan to active politics that India's then home minister Shinde was quoted in the national media as referring to "saffron terrorism" at an AICC session at Jaipur in January 2013 after accusing the BJP and the RSS of promoting "Hindu terrorism". The constitution bench of the Supreme Court has given its ruling a couple of times on who the Governor can invite to form government in a state. Article 361 of the Constitution clearly states that the governor is not answerable to the court for decisions taken in the exercise of his powers and duties. In Manipur too, the Governor did not give chance to the single largest party, the Congress to prove its majority.
Mayawati also tied up with Akhilesh Yadav's Samajwadi Party and backed its candidate in Gorakhpur Lok Sabha by-election in which they managed to defeat the BJP in its chief minister Yogi Adityanath's home turf.
When BJP leaders sent Modi to Gujarat in 2001, no MLA was interested initially in vacating their seat for Modi.
Soon after Congress declared its support to JD (S), Kumaraswamy wrote to the governor informing him that he had accepted the offer.
Mocking Congress for raising the specter of irregularities in the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM), Pandey said that this was the usual modus operandi of the Congress Party that wastes no time in blaming the machines that happen to be the same machines where they have emerged victorious.
"I may also direct you that you would seek a vote of confidence on the floor of the House showing that you command the confidence of the House".
Analysts have highlighted the personal role of Modi in swaying the Karnataka electorate and taking the BJP to the verge of a historic swing.
