Congress gets Supreme Court rap, Manohar Parrikar test tomorrow

How Modi Shah Took The Throne in Uttar Pradesh

He now has to take the trust vote on Thursday (March 16) to prove he has the support of the majority to run the government.

"If they (Congress) had the majority, they should have gone to the governor instead of approaching the court", Parrikar said. Congress was not even contacted on phone, thereby denying it an opportunity to show its strength, he said, adding that this was against the mandate of the people.

Three MLAs of the Goa Forward Party, three of the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and two Independents have pledged their support to Parrikar.

Union Minister of State for Power Piyush Goyal, who was the party observer for Manipur, accompanied by Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar and BJP Manipur BJP president Kh Bhabananda, made the announcement of Biren Singhs elevation as the legislature party leader soon after the meeting.

In the fractured outcome of the 40-member Goa assembly elections, the Congress won 17 seats as against the BJP's 13.

Congress leaders spoke in varied voices following the election verdict in five states, with some hinting at deep introspection and "decision" by Rahul Gandhi about his role, and others talking of fixing responsibility at the level of senior leaders.

Barca hero Roberto 'threw himself' at historic victor
And Enrique took the chance to round on his critics as he thanked the "faith" of the Barca players and fans. The video showed the singer shouting "historic" repeatedly, while others joined in the singing and dancing.

BJP, which won 21 seats in the assembly elections held earlier this month, achieved the vaunted 31-seat mark earlier in the day with the support of its ally Naga People's Front (NPF) (4 seats), and the NPP (4 seats), LJP (1) and one Independent. Two parties had agreed to support BJP on the precondition that I take over as the chief minister. "Parrikar will resign as the Defence Minister before taking oath as Chief Minister of Goa", Gadkari said.

The Congress cried foul at not being called first by the governor, and rushed to the residence of Chief Justice J.S. Khehar on Monday evening. "We are the single largest party and we should be invited to form the government", CLP leader Chandrakant Kavlekar told PTI.

"Our fight is against the BJP's ideology".

"I appreciate Parrikar's deep commitment and love for the soil of Goa, but he should be sporting enough to accept the fact that the BJP has received drubbing under his leadership", he said. Obviously in a hung assembly postpoll alliances will be formed.

The members of the Congress and other Opposition parties like the NCP and RJD sought to raise the issue during Question Hour and later, with the Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge attacking the BJP, but Speaker Sumitra Mahajan did not allow them to raise the matter on the ground that the House could not discuss the actions of a constitutional authority like the governor.
