As the coalition government of JDS-Congress in Karnataka seems to be on the brink of collapse, BJP seems to be in no hurry to claim it’s governance. It has left the entire decision to the state leaders to tackle the emerging situation.
The eyes of BJP are all set on the political development that is going on in Karnataka after dozens of MLAs from the ruling Congress-JD(s) decided to resign. Two independent lawmakers who were serving as ministers in the government of HD Kumaraswamy also have withdrawn their support from the party.
Once the speaker accepts the resignation of these MLAs BJP Will discuss and decide over the chances of government formation in Karnataka.
The strength of the member assembly of 224 members will be reduced to 211 if the speaker accepts the resignation of the 13 lawmakers.
A coalition or party needs the support of 106 members in such a scenario to form a government. BJP currently has 105 members, and there are good chances of it to claim it’s a stake to form the government in Karnataka.
One of the leaders of BJP said that their MLAs would meet again on Tuesday in Bangalore to take stock of the entire situation.
Another leader of BJP said that the party is in no hurry to claim its stake to form the government in Karnataka. He further added that we’re waiting and watching the whole scenario and we will take the final decision only once the present government falls if the speaker accepts the resignation of the MLAs.
BS Yeddyurappa who was the former chief minister and heads the BJPs Karnataka unit is reported to be in constant touch with the rebel lawmakers and is trying his best to bring them in his party. He will become the new chief minister if BJP is invited to form its party in Karnataka.
