The Karnataka election drama reached its peak at midnight on Wednesday with lawyers and reporters rushing to the Supreme Court to attend a rare 1:45 am hearing.

Supreme Court bench of Justices AK Sikri, Ashok Bhushan and SA Bobde was assembled when the Congress and JD (S) decided to file the petition with the Supreme Court challenging Karnataka Governor, Vajubhai Vala’s decision to allow BJP to form the government in the State despite of falling short of magical numbers of 113 seats.

The Quint first broke the story at 8:41 pm on Wednesday when the JD (S) lawyer left his office to meet the Congress leader Manu Singhvi to finalise the petition.

The Quint has exclusively accessed the copy of the 48 pages petition filed in the SC.
