I am not the kingmaker, going to be the king!"I belong to the single largest party but sitting in the opposition bench. He is the member of the second largest party which is outside the Government. The third one belongs to the third largest party supporting the Government inside but not joined the cabinet. The fourth member happens to be the member of the party which has won the single seat in the election and formed the Government enjoying the support of those from outside and inside" - these were the quotes of late Pramod Mahajan during a debate in the Lok Sabha during the NDA regime.
Yes, these words are true in the present context of the Karnataka elections and the kingmaker stakes his claim to be the King. All eyes are pointed towards Rajbhavan and the role of the Governor. comes into the picture. Everyone started deliberating on the profile of the Governor who happened to be the Speaker of Gujarat assembly when Modi was the Chief Minister. Till now nobody is bothered to know much about him but thanks to media to share everything.
Some people started to quote the happenings in Goa, Manipur and Tripura. Everybody has to repay the coin and it's a matter of time. Thanks to our democracy. Don't underestimate anyone, time may make a kingmaker to be the king!
