Cong murdered democracy by making offer to JD(S): Shah 

New Delhi: Democracy was murdered the moment a “desperate” Congress made an “opportunist” offer to the JD(S) to form the government in Karnataka for “petty political gains”, BJP President Amit Shah said on Thursday while hitting back at the Congress over its “murder of democracy” accusation.The Congress had on Wednesday termed Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala’s decision to invite BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa to form the government as “murder of democracy and trampling of Constitution”.Responding to the accusation, Shah, in a tweet, said, “The ‘Murder of Democracy’ happens the minute a desperate Congress made an ‘opportunist’ offer to the JD(S), not for Karnataka’s welfare but for their petty political gains. Shameful!”He also cited the fall in Congress tally from 122 in 2013 to 78 seats this time and said his party’s number stood at 104 seats, suggesting that the BJP had the mandate to form the government.“Who has the people’s mandate in Karnataka? The BJP, which has won 104 seats. Or Congress which dropped to 78 seats, whose own CM and Ministers lost by big margins.“JD(S) who won only 37 seats and lost their deposits on several others. People are wise to realise,” he said in another tweet. PTI
