After Karnataka Governor’s decision; RJD to stake claim for govt in Bihar

party delegation will also demand dissolution of the incumbent JD(U)-BJP Government

With the Karnataka Governor’s decision to invite BJP for government and prove majority, the complications may have just begun.

Now the single largest party in Bihar, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) has decided to meeting the state Governor Satya Pal Malik seeking to form government in the state.

The party delegation will also demand dissolution of the incumbent JD(U)-BJP Government.

This was announced by the RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav.

“We would be holding a one-day dharna tomorrow against the murder of democracy in Karnataka. We also request the Bihar Governor to dissolve the state government and like in Karnataka, invite the single largest party, which in Bihar is the RJD,” the tweet read.

Yadav also announced that the party would hold a Dharna on Friday.

In another tweet, Yadav said, “I will meet Honourable Governor of Bihar along with MLAs as we are single largest party of Bihar.”

The RJD holds 80 seats in the 243-seat Bihar Assembly, whereas the ruling coalition parties Janata Dal (United) and the BJP hold 70 seats and 53 seats each respectively.

Yadav’s statement comes after the Karnataka Assembly elections, wherein the single largest party was invited to form the government instead of the coalition parties, despite them having the majority.
