KARNATAKA POLLS 2018: Oath billed to rally Oppn for '19 polls 21.5.2018 DNA: Popular News
Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Kumaraswamy will meet Congress leaders Sonia and Rahul Gandhi in Delhi on Monday, two days ahead of his swearing-in as Karnataka CM, an event being designed to mobilise anti-BJP forces for next year's general elections. Opposition leaders Mamata Banerjee, Mayawati, Akhilesh Yadav, Chandrababu Naidu, Chandrashekar Rao and others are expected to attend the oath ceremony in Bengaluru. The CM-designate has personally invited the Gandhis. BJP's BS Yeddyurappa resigned after three days as CM without facing a Supreme Court-mandated floor test in the Assembly on Saturday as he remained short of numbers.

The post-election alliance of JD(S) and Congress has staked its claim to form the government.

UP oppn parties learn lessons from Karnataka 20.5.2018 General News
The outcome of Karnataka assembly polls has underlined the need for the opposition parties in Uttar Pradesh to prevent a split in the anti-BJP vote in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, party leaders said. Opposition parties like the Samajwadi Party, the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Congress argue that that it was a division in the anti-BJP vote that allowed the saffron party to emerge as the single largest party in Karnataka. "There is a strong need to chalk out a strategy to ensure that the anti-BJP votes do not get divided to give it (BJP) any advantage in the coming elections," SP spokesman Rajendra Chaudhary told PTI here. Elections now have to be fought strategically, he said. That success can be achieved through unity has been proved very well in Gorakhpur and Phoolpur, where the SP wrested the seats from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party with the help of the BSP, Chaudhary said.

Blood on Bengal Ballots 20.5.2018 DNA: Top News
On May 14, when polling was supposed to take place in West Bengal's panchayat election, ballot boxes were forced open on roadsides. Water was poured in them. Many were burnt, some thrown in ponds. All this was done in front of the media and, sometimes, the police. Even election officials were beaten up. Clashes swept across the state's countryside in an abysmal collapse of law and order. At least 14 persons were killed and hundreds wounded, though the State Election Commission (SEC) confirmed only six deaths. In fact, about 40 people were killed in poll-related violence since April 2 when nominations started. Prime Minister Narendra Modi called the violence a murder of democracy for narrow political interests, and said workers of every political party except TMC were killed. "From nominations to polling, democracy had no place. All parties, the civil society and the judiciary will have to play an active role to address this," he said. But, it was not the most violent panchayat election in the state. In ...

With the Congress and JD(S) set to form the government in Karnataka after the BJP failed in its efforts, BJP chief Amit Shah said today that governments formed by "such unholy" alliances are unlikely to last long and also rubbished charges of horse-trading by his party. In his first comments after BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa resigned as the chief minister of Karnataka today, Shah maintained the party did not indulge in any manipulation, and said rather it was the Congress which not only indulged in horse-trading but has "bought the entire stable".
