Karnataka election results: BJP largest party, Congress-JD(S) form coalition
Congress has supported JDS to stake claim to form the next govt in Karnataka, as the BJP seemed to fall short of a majority.
Now, the ball is in the Governor's court whether he will invite the BJP as the single largest party to form a minority government or invite the Congress-JD(S) combine with 115 seats to form the government. In either case, the government should prove its majority on the floor of the House to ensure five-year rule.
