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.— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) May 17, 2018
This morning, while the BJP celebrates its hollow victory, India will mourn the defeat of democracy.
