After the Supreme Court order on floor test in Karnataka, Congress President Rahul Gandhi took to twitter to say that the order was a vindication of the party's stand that the governor acted "unconstitutionally".
Gandhi said the court has called out BJP's "bluff" of forming a government even without the numbers and alleged that the party will now resort to using money and muscle power to "steal" the mandate.
"Today's Supreme Court order, vindicates our stand that Governor Vajubhai Vala acted unconstitutionally," he said on Twitter. He also said that the party has been stopped legally from forming their government as they do not have the numbers. "The BJP's bluff that it will form the Government., even without the numbers, has been called out by the court.
