Cong, RJD want ‘K’taka model’ in Goa and Bihar
NEW DELHI/PATNA: The Congress plans to protest against Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala’s invitation to the BJP to form the government and the swearing -in of BS Yeddyurappa by observing Friday as ‘Save Democracy Day’.
The party plans to hold demonstrations across the country, and even stake a claim to forming the government in Goa, where it emerged as the single largest party in the 2017 polls, but was trumped by a Bjp-led alliance. The RJD said it would stake a claim to forming government in Bihar on the same grounds as the BJP — that it had emerged as the single largest party in the 2015 polls. RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said, “Why two yardsticks for Karnataka and Bihar?”
