New Delhi, May 16 - As Karnataka Governor Vajubhai R. Vala on Wednesday invited BJP legislature party leader B.S. Yeddyurappa to form the new government in the state, the Congress said the Governor denigrated his office, trampled the Constitution and acted as a BJP puppet.

Vajubhai Vala denigrated the Governor's office, trampled upon the Constitution, abused the law and acted as a BJP puppet. He chose to serve his masters in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rather then serve the Constitution, tweeted Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala, he said.

Earlier, in a press briefing, Congress leader P. Chidambaram said the numbers of the Congress party and the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) clearly established that the alliance had a majority in the Karnataka legislature.

The Governor, who is an exalted constitutional office, should not walk on a perilious path which is illegal, Chidambaram said.

He also said that the Governor was bound by the Supreme Court judgment to invite the leader of the alliance (H.D. Kumaraswamy) that has been formed and which commands majority in the legislative assembly.
