In Karnataka, the combined vote share of Congress and JD-S now stands at 56.4%. CPM General Secretary Sitaram Yechury was also in touch with Deve Gowda before counting began. INC did manage to get the highest vote share with 38% of total votes, closely followed by BJP.

"I invite you to form the Government and be sworn in as the Chief Minister of Karnataka".

The idea was to take the alliance to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Key opposition parties rallied behind the Congress-JDS alliance as it concretised.

"Shocking to see a defeated Congress falling head over heels to extend unconditional support to the JD-S after dubbing it BJP's B-team", Kumar told reporters outside Raj Bhavan. The victory of Congress in Punjab was credited more to Amarinder Singh.

Chief Justice Dipak Misra constituted the bench shortly after midnight on Wednesday to hear the matter in court number six of the Supreme Court. Mayawati's BSP, a JD (S) ally, and KPJP have won one seat each.

A hung assembly in Karnataka could delay public infrastructure projects and other policies that are in the works, start-up founders and entrepreneurs in state capital Bengaluru said. While the Congress-JD (S) alliance, which has a majority, is waiting for an invitation!

The petition prepared by advocate Dev Dutt Kamath contended that despite presenting the list of 116 MLAs, governor Vala has invited the BJP which has 104 MLAs to form the government and has given relatively longer time of 15 days to prove the majority on the floor of the House.

Kumaraswamy, on the other hand, trained his guns firmly on the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. They said that the Congress will fight it tooth and nail.

The top leaders of both the BJP and the Congress attach great value to being in power in Karnataka. Not only from a national perspective, but from a regional perspective. "So, I am going with Congress".

"We have a plan to safeguard our MLAs, who are together and will not join the BJP, which has 8 less seats for the 112-halfway mark and prove majority", Siddaramaiah said. Similarly, what is our strategy with Mamata Banerjee, Sharad Pawar? "That's why the Karnataka government wants to tap our phones and listen to what we talk about the leaders and with our leaders", she added.

Speaking about the Karnataka election results, DMK's TKS Elangovan said the Congress should have entered into a pre-poll alliance with JD (S). If Congress wins the remaining four, the combine will have 115 seats, enough for a majority. "I am warning them, we will face it". It would have helped them in 2019. However, it is for the Governor to take a call on who to invite first.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Karnataka BJP tweeted about the swearing-in but deleted it later. A prior understanding with the JD (S) would have worked better...

"It is a murder of democracy in the country and it is a black day in India's history.The decision has been taken under pressure of BJP leaders", Gehlot told PTI.
