    Challenges abound, but shared fear of losing power may keep Cong, JD(S) together, writes M Gautham Machaiah

    The JD(S) and Congress, which have come together to form a coalition government in Karnataka, are no strange bedfellows and go back a long way.

    BJP's bid to save Karnataka government not the way for 'Congress-free' India: Shiv Sena

    The Shiv Sena on Monday said the BJP's attempt to save the BS Yeddyurappa government in Karnataka was not the way to make the country "Congress-free".

    Stressing the need to save democracy in the country, the BJP's bickering ally said no government can use the Constitution to enforce its decisions on people, according to a PTI report.

    In an editorial in its mouthpiece 'Saamana', the Sena also alleged that "the governor" and the president sometimes act like agents of the government.

    "They are the constitutional heads of a state and the country, but they themselves act contrary to constitutional norms," it read.

    The Sena's remarks came against the backdrop of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala's earlier decision to invite Yeddyurappa to form the government and prove majority in the Assembly in 15 days.
