In Manipur, the BJP, which got 21 seats, has staked claim to form the government. Parrikar has to prove his majority in the Assembly on Thursday, as directed by the Supreme Court.

Many Congress leaders, including the party's Rajya Sabha chief whip Satyavrat Chatur-vedi, criticised the delay in garnering support from other MLAs in Goa, where it lost out to the BJP in the race to form the government despite being the 'single largest party.

Will Modi UP sweep help Hasina!

The Congress has taken umbrage to the Governor's move of not inviting them as they are single largest party that has emerged in the Goa Legislative Assembly polls.

The Congress cried foul at not being called first by the governor, and rushed to the residence of Chief Justice J.S. Khehar on Monday evening. One that could ensure his political future as the next chief minister of Manipur.

Union Minister of State for Power Piyush Goyal, who was the party observer for Manipur, accompanied by Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar and BJP Manipur BJP president Kh Bhabananda, made the announcement of Biren Singhs elevation as the legislature party leader soon after the meeting.

The BJP's attempts to grab power in Goa and Manipur after the Assembly elections in both the states are morally, politically and legally wrong.

The Congress has claimed that BJP's act of staking claim in Manipur and Goa was "murder of democracy", a charge refuted by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in a hard-hitting post on Facebook on Tuesday. The CM thus appointed must prove majority as per the guidelines laid down in the Bommai judgment - on the floor of the assembly.

Another senior leader, Sheila Dikshit, said Congress should shed its feudalistic image and its members should share the blame for the party's defeat in UP.

Panaji (Goa): Former defence minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday took oath as the 13th Chief Minister of Goa.

Sinha's invitation to the BJP ostensibly rests on that party hastily submitting letters of support from smaller parties - the MGP and the Goa Forward Party with three MLAs each - and three independents to claim a majority in the House. "Therefore, this is a clear attempt to nullify peoples' mandate", he added.

Goa Governor Mridula Sinha administered the oath of office to Parrikar at the Raj Bhavan here.

CJI said that the Supreme Court decided Arunachal Pradesh judgement, the top court had held that in few conditions Governor can take decisions and Goa was among them. "They felt that I could lead a coalition government well".
