The drama in Karnataka is playing out in various parts of the states.It began at Goa, then spread to Bihar and now has reached Manipur as well. The Congress and the RJD are citing the Karnataka example and are demanding that the Governor invite them to form the government on the basis that they are the single largest party.
The BJP suffered shock defeats in Gorakhpur and Phulpur. The Samajwadi Party bagged both these seats in the Uttar Pradesh by-elections. It was clear that the support from the BSP helped the SP a great deal in beating the BJP.
