BJP misusing government machinery since they came to power: Mayawati

Karnataka government formation: How Mayawati made it tough for the Bharatiya Janata Party Mayawati Behind Hurriedly Stitched Alliance of Congress, JD-S in Karnataka

"I endorse the views of Mayawatiji".

"The BJP's irrational insistence that it will form a Govt in Karnataka, even though it clearly doesn't have the numbers, is to make a mockery of our Constitution", Gandhi tweeted.

"It is a conspiracy to destroy the constitution made by Baba Saheb Ambedkar, since they (BJP) came to power they have been misusing government machinery, thereby attacking democracy", reports quoted Mayawati as saying. Soon after the Karnataka election results, TMC chief congratulated all newly elected MLAs.

Addressing a Panchayati Raj rally in Chattisgarh's Raipur, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said RSS-BJP are misusing democratic institutions, he added, that prevailing situation in India is like Pakistan.

The BJP has emerged as the single largest party in the southern state winning 104 seats, but is short of a simple majority.

Same party in Karnataka and Centre: BJP changes long standing trend
The new BJP government has 15 days to gather enough support to survive a vote in the legislature on its leadership. The court issued a notice to Yeddyurappa , asking him to produce the letter before the next hearing on 18 May.

The Congress on Wednesday hit out at Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala and said that he shamed his office by inviting Yeddyurappa to form the government in the state.

Yeddyurappa took oath as the 23rd chief minister of Karnataka after the Supreme Court early on Thursday morning decided not to put a stay on the swearing-in while conducting a post-midnight hearing, wherein the Congress and JD (S) pleaded for the same citing the BJP's inadequate strength in the assembly to stake claim at forming the state government.

Mayawati was referring to the fact that the BJP won many seats in Muslim dominated areas of Karnataka as the Congress competed with the JD (S)+BSP alliance for Muslim votes.

The court said that the the outcome of the swearing in would be subject to the outcome of the petition filed by the Congress and JD (S).
