"Congress has dismissed non-Congress governments umpteen times in the past misusing powers and Article 356". Riddled with identity and factional politics to establish their supremacy, election result from 5 states has taught bickering Karnataka BJP leaders a valid lesson that the High Command and its choice is supreme.

Further accusing the BJP of buying MLAs, Rahul said, "It is not about how soon they went, but with how much money the BJP went to steal the mandate of Goa and Manipur".

Shyam Kumar, the Congress MLA from Andro constituency, will resign and contest on a BJP ticket which means he will be disqualified, bringing down the total number of Manipur Assembly to 59.

State BJP president BS Yeddyurappa told Bangalore Mirror that the victory was a boost for the party. However, the saffron party claims to have support from the elected MLAs of MGP, the GFP and independents, takings its tally to 21.

Allies outnumber the BJP in Manohar Parrikar's council of ministers in Goa. Parrikar was sworn in as the new Goa CM on Tuesday.

Congress did well in assembly elections by winning in Punjab and putting itself in an apparently winning position in Goa and Manipur although it lost in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

In his post on social media, Jaitley debunked the Congress camp's charges, strongly defending the Goa governor's move to invite Parrikar to form the BJP-led coalition government there.

The results announced on Saturday showed the Congress with 17 members in the 40-member legislative assembly, followed by the BJP with 13, the Maharashtra Gomantak Party with three, the Goa Forward Party with three, the Nationalist Congress Party with one, and three independents. The Congress got 28 in the 60-member Assembly, while the Naga People's Front (NPF) and the National People's Party (NPP) got four seats each.
