"Mr Shah's election management team will operate from the place", a senior BJP leader indicated. "Did the people of Karnataka support the corruption of B.S. Yeddyurappa or mining-scam accused Gali Janardhana Reddy?" The Karnataka elections threw up a fractured mandate, and BJP, despite being in pole position with 104 seats, saw the Janata Dal (S) with 38 and Congress with 78 come together to stake claim.
On historic victory in Karnataka, Bharatiya Janata Party Chandigarh unit organised a celebration programme at Kamalam and hundreds of party activists participated in this programme.
Tiwari added that according to the Supreme Court ruling, the governor must invite the party that has the majority either pre-poll or post-poll.
The revenge of the Telugus on the BJP for sidelining the promise of special status has been exhibited in the Karnataka polls where the national party is virtually in tears of having the apple but not able to eat it. Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with BJP president Amit Shah, Union Minister of Home Affairs Rajnath Singh, Union Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and other dignitaries attended the meeting. Another alliance partner, MGP, said that the regional parties will remain an important factor in Goan politics.
Though development was a part of the political discourse, it was overtaken by a slanging match between the two parties over corruption.
Another BJP leader from AP, who did not want to be named, also said the party is looking for leaders from outside to fill its ranks.
The former parliamentarian cited the example of Goa, Manipur and Meghalaya Assembly elections when the BJP had secured less seats compared to the Congress and the governors of the three states had asked the BJP to form the government.
