India will mourn the defeat of democracy today: Rahul Gandhi
After Karnataka elections were turned into a battle ground, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said the BJP is making a mockery of the Constitution. Rahul taking to his Twitter handle said that this day India would mourn the defeat of democracy.
“The BJP’s irrational insistence that it will form a Govt in Karnataka, even though it clearly doesn’t have the numbers, is to make a mockery of our Constitution,” Gandhi tweeted.“This morning, while the BJP celebrates its hollow victory, India will mourn the defeat of democracy,” he added.
BJP’s BS Yeddyurappa took oath as the 23rd chief minister of Karnataka after the Supreme Court early on Thursday morning decided not to put a stay on the swearing-in while conducting a post-midnight hearing.
Late on Wednesday night, the Congress and JD(S) challenged Karnataka Governor Vajubhai R Vala’s decision in the apex court to invite the BJP to form the government.
