Politics or politricks? BJP, Cong accused of U turns after Karnataka elections

It is an election that is turning out to be no less than a movie full of suspense, twists and tricks. Tuesday (May 15) had the Congress, Janata Dal (Secular) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) throwing several curveballs in a desperate race to form the government in Karnataka.

As the BJP emerged as the single largest party in the state with 104 seats, the Congress and JD (S) posed as a thorn in their side, with the two parties forming a post-poll alliance that puts them over the halfway mark.

The BJP has slammed the move and asserted its confidence in forming the government as the single-largest party, with its CM candidate BS Yeddyurappa submitting a letter to the Governor of the state. However, both the Congress and the JD (S) have hit back at the BJP, saying that the two are doing what the BJP had previously done in Goa, Meghalaya and Manipur.

Adding weight to the assertions of the opponents of the BJP are these tweets by Union Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs, Arun Jaitley, from last year.

Last year in March, Jaitley had also written a blog post saying that the Congress is complaining too about the turn of events that took place in Goa.

Trying to use BJP’s quotes against them, CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechuri and Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi brought these tweets back to the limelight, saying that the party had already set the example..

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also furnished historical precedence proving the principle of calling the party or combination of parties that have achieved majority first to form a government.

But another tweet from Surjewala himself, posted last year, has resurfaced in which the MLA had questioned the BJP when they had also acted in a similar fashion as the Congress-JD (S) alliance.

The question of who is wrong and who is right has been muddled as uncertainty looms over who will finally sit on the Karnataka throne.
