"The Governor should have called those who had maximum numbers". He reminded that then SC had upheld government formation by BJP and asked to form the same norm now.

Soon after the counting trends showed that the state was heading towards a hung assembly, the Congress had made a decision to extend its support to a JD (S)- led government headed by the regional outfit's leader, HD Kumaraswamy.

"As far as swearing-in is concerned, we are not restraining it, but we are making it subject to the outcome of the case", NDTV quoted the bench as saying. He said that in his letter to the governor, staking claim to form the government, Yeddyurappa claims to have 111 MLAs while the BJP has 104. Reacting to the protests being held by Congress, Union Minister Ananth Kumar said that the Congress should protest against its president, Sonia Gandhi and former chief minister of Karnataka, Siddaramaiah. In the Karnataka assembly, the magic figure needed for political parties or their alliances to secure a simple majority is 113 seats; the Congress-JD (S) and BSP combine had 117 (including support from the lone legislator from the Karnataka Pragnyavantha Janatha Party). Considering protests, forces have been deployed to ensure the swearing-in ceremony smoothly.
