This has come hours after Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav announced that the party has chose to meet the Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik to stake claim to form the government in the state citing the fact that the Karnataka Governor invited the single largest party in the state to form the government.

"I will meet Honourable Governor of Bihar along with MLAs as we are single largest party of Bihar", Tejashwi Yadav said.

Yadav said the party has also requested the Bihar Governor to dissolve the state government.

Earlier in the day, Congress announced that it will stake claim to form the government in Goa since the party too had emerged as the single largest party during the Goa Assembly polls in 2017.

"We had sat on dharna till 2am on July 26 past year outside the Raj Bhawan waiting for the governor to invite us as we were the single largest party" he said.

"The Congress is also preparing to demand the "Karnataka model" in neigbouring Goa, where it couldn't form a government previous year despite emerging as the single largest party". The Lalu Prasad Yadav-led party had emerged as the largest party with 80 MLAs in the Assembly polls. "But the then Governor rubbished our claim and allowed the post-poll alliance of JD (U) and BJP to form the government", he added, terming the action of then Governor KN Tripathy "severe injustice to democracy".

Goa Congress chief Girish Chodankar said the governors can not have two different sets of rules.

He was referring to the decision of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to invite the BJP to form the government after the Assembly election results declared on Wednesday. Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik will meet Tejashwi at 1 pm on Friday.

With Kumar's JD (U), which had 71 MLAs, joining hands with BJP, which was Bihar's main Opposition party at the time with 53 MLAs, a JD (U)-BJP government was sworn in the next day.

In Goa, Congress Legislature Party chief Chandrakant Kavlekar said the party will stake claim tomorrow by submitting to Governor Mridula Sinha a formal letter containing signatures of all the 16 party MLAs.

"It's all BJP's greed to form the government". However, BJP clobbered up the support of 11 MLAs to add to its tally of 21 to form the government.

Karnataka's impact may spill over to at least four more states now, with the Congress and other opposition parties demanding that as single largest party, they be given a shot at power. "We should get the opportunity now", said Singh.

The move comes at a time when Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar has been away for medical treatment for over two months, leaving the state without an active CM and making everyone from the allies to the opposition members restless.

The BJP-led government in Goa is headed by Manohar Parrikar, who is now undergoing treatment in the United States for a pancreatic ailment.
