Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist party ended Congress party rule in a key southern state on Thursday, but its poll victory was marred by questions over who has the right to form the government.

To recall, the Bharatiya Janata Party won 104 seats on the counting day but fell nine seats short of the majority mark of 113 in the 224-member Karnataka Assembly. He reminded that then SC had upheld government formation by BJP and asked to form the same norm now. The Shiv Sena on Thursday said, the BJP will find it hard to prove majority its on the floor of the house. In 2015, PDP & BJP formed the government even when National Conference was the single largest party in Jammu and Kashmir and in 2017 the BJP and Goa Forward party formed the government in Goa even though the Congress was the single largest party. Slamming the protests by the Congress leaders, BJP's Kumar said, "If Congress wants to protest, they should protest against Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi & Siddaramaiah, as this trio has ruined the Congress".
