We've Complete Faith in Governor Vajubhai Vala: Ghulam Nabi Azad

Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad

On the other end of the line was the Congress' Ghulam Nabi Azad. "We did our homework", Ali said, adding he updated HD Kumaraswamy about the talks late on Monday night.

Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said if the governor invites the BJP, it would mean that "you are openly inviting horse trading, inviting defection in the parties and under the Constitution, as the head of the state of Karnataka, you should not". "At this juncture, we've complete faith in Governor that he'll go by Constitution and not party politics".

Mr Azad said that both Congrss and JD (S) leaders and hopefully will call on Governor Vajubhai Vala this evening to convey the decision.

He further said that they are seeking an appointment with Governor so that they can handover two letters, 1 of legislator party of Congress another of legislator party of JD (S).

The Congress leader said the BJP laying claim to form the government for being the single largest party holds no good. Senior leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Ashok Gehlot are in the southern state to ensure support from Janata Dal (Secular) which will play a key role in case of a hung assembly.

Informed sources said the JD-S could get the Chief Minister's post in the event of a tie-up with the Congress and in the bargain, the Congress eyes for two posts of deputy chief minister. If media reports are to be believed, an Independent candidate and another from KPJP have offered support to the saffron party. That would take the BJP's total to 110 but it'll still be two seats short. JD (S) of former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, however, was maintaining its hold in the old Mysuru region, the Vokkaliga belt, and its candidates were leading in 36 seats. Mayawati's BSP, a JD (S) ally, and KPJP have won one seat each.

During the NDA government's tenure, governors had sent the invite to the coalition with the majority in Manipur, Meghalaya and Goa where the Congress was the single largest party. However, he can also invite two parties who have joined hands to form the government.
