Congress leaders alleged Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of poaching their MLAs to form government in Karnataka. Elections to two seats are yet to be held.

President H.D. Kumaraswamy speaks to media after the legislative party meeting in Bangalore on Wednesday.

By mid-afternoon the Congress had taken 28 seats and was leading in 49, while the regional Janata Dal (Secular) had seven seats and led in another 31. "There are at least 10 BJP MLAs who are ready to deflect your party", he claimed. Whether they will get the magic mark of 112 or not is still not confirmed.

Therefore, Modi's "pilgrimage" to Nepal last weekend immediately after campaigning for the state election in Karnataka in the south ended on Friday, raised eyebrows.

Elections were conducted for 222 out the total 224 assembly seats. Their desperation is clearly visible as leaders from Kashmir and West Bengal have sprung into action post the election results.

The governor reportedly took the decision after consulting with former attorney general Mukul Rohtagi. Had it been so, we would have had a clear mandate, either for the BJP or the Congress. Immediately thereafter, Yeddyurappa made a dash for Raj Bhavan and staked claim to form the government.

As the alliance was agreed upon, the Congress was asked to join the government and offered the post of Deputy Chief Minister and some ministers.

Soon after Congress declared its support to JD (S), Kumaraswamy wrote to the governor informing him that he had accepted the offer. They said come to us and we'll give a ministry to you.

Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend. Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by a 2.30-to-1 ratio; on the Nasdaq, a 2.62-to-1 ratio favored advancers.

In a roller-coaster ride for BJP, it initially appeared that the party was set to return to power after a five-year hiatus with a resounding majority. JD (S) legislators are expected to stay at a five-star hotel in Bengaluru. "We will jointly go to meet Governor after 5.30 PM today".

Sharing his thoughts on the alliance, BJP leader D.V. Sadananda Gowda said, "We are the single largest party".

Congress leader Abhishek Singhvi is the leading his party's challenge.

As the suspense continued, the BJP's state unit tweeted that Yeddyurappa would take oath at 9.30 am.

A day after Karnataka delivered a split verdict in the assembly polls, and the rival camps intensified efforts to outmanoeuvre each other in the race for forming the government, Kumaraswamy, who was elected the JD-S legislature party leader, dropped the Rs 100 crore bribe bombshell.

However, BJP's chief ministerial candidate B S Yeddyurappa accused Congress of trying to win power unfairly. Hence, BS Yeddyurappa, who represents the single largest party with the highest number of MLAs, can not stake a claim because he does not have a majority. Goa faced a hung assembly as no party managed to secure the needed 22 seats.

Speaking to reporters, Siddaramaiah said the BJP is misusing power and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is supporting this coup by the BJP.
