After BJP's 'largest-party theory' in Karnataka, Opposition to stake claim to govt in four other states
The Congress party-led alliance is all set to widen its political battle of Karnataka as its Goa unit and alliance partner Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in Bihar, are likely to approach the Supreme Court (SC) if their plea to respective governors over claiming that they were the single-largest party and should have been given an opportunity to form the government, does not get a favourable response.
It may be recalled that as the Congress cried foul in Goa when the BJP struck a post-poll alliance with the Goa Forward Party (GFP) and Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) to form the government, finance minister Arun Jaitley had gone on record saying: "In a hung Assembly, if a majority of the elected MLAs form a coalition, the governor would be constitutionally right in inviting the leader of the majority coalition to form the government and prove their majority within a short period".
"We are not only single largest party but single largest block of pre poll alliance in Bihar". He with other party leaders will meet the Governor on Friday and say that being the single largest party Congress should be invited to form government in Goa.
Yadav also said that he will be meeting the Bihar governor at 1 PM tomorrow.
"There can not be two type of law prevailing in the country". The governor should invite us to form the government in Goa as per the precedent set by her Karnataka counterpart, said Kavlekar, the Leader of Opposition in the Goa Assembly. The Governor has given 12 noon time for the meeting with the Congress leaders.
Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala told the media in Delhi that if the single- largest party has to be called for government formation, the rule should be applied to Goa, Manipur and Meghalaya as well. However, his demands were not met.
"Yadav, son of Lalu Prasad and the Leader of the Opposition in the Bihar Assembly, told reporters in Patna he has sought an appointment with the Governor Satyapal Malik on Friday before whom we wish to submit that there can not be double standards".

Goa Congress Legislature Party chief Chandrakant Kavlekar said on Thursday that the party would stake claim on Friday by submitting to Governor Mridula Sinha a formal letter containing signatures of all 16 party MLAs. The BJP joined hands with regional parties to claim support of majority of MLAs and Governor Najma Heptulla invited it to form the government, ignoring the claim of the Congress. When pointed out that the Congress needs support of at least 21 legislators to stake the claim, he said that once the governor swears in the Congress chief minister, he will be able to prove his majority on the floor of the House.
Addressing reporters at his government allotted quarter at Bapupara, Ibobi said, "We have sought appointment from the Governor for tomorrow".
