Cong, RJD want ‘K’taka model’ in Goa and Bi­har

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - FRONT PAGE -

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?”
