Karnataka Government Formation: Kumaraswamy In Delhi Today To Meet The Gandhis

Karnataka government formation: Kumaraswamy is expected to take oath on Wednesday.

New Delhi/Bengaluru:  HD Kumaraswamy, the prospective Chief Minister of the Congress-JDS alliance in Karnataka, will meet Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in Delhi today. The JD(S) leader is expected to meet the Gandhis to discuss the Cabinet ahead of his oath ceremony. Mr Kumaraswamy is expected to take oath on Wednesday.

The Congress, which won 78 seats in comparison to Mr Kumaraswamy’s party’s 38, will get the lion’s share of the ministries.

Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala invited the BJP, the single largest party with 104 seats, to form the government though the JD(S)- Congress combine that commanded a majority, had staked claim to form government. The two parties later approached the court against the Governor’s invite to BS Yeddyurappa. JD(S)-Congress combine were only allowed to form the government after Mr Yeddyurappa resigned for want of majority, ahead of the trust vote on Saturday.

Mr Kumaraswamy has said the Chief Minister’s post will not be shared between him and the Congress — a rotational deal that had soured his tie-up with the BJP in 2007.

In 2007, the BJP-JDS alliance had collapsed after 20 months. The northern party alleged that Mr Kumaraswamy had failed to honour the power-sharing agreement and step down to make way for a BJP Chief Minister.

The Congress, which won 78 seats in comparison to Mr Kumaraswamy’s party’s 38, will get the lion’s share of the ministries.
The party will be allowed to name the Deputy Chief Minister, a post that’s likely to be filled by G Parameshwar, the chief of the state unit of the Congress. Some in the JD(S) don’t rule out the possibility of two Deputy Chief Ministers to strike a balance between the two parties.

The Congress and the JD(S) have finalised the details of power sharing. Sources indicated that both sides agreed to constitute a coalition coordination committee and to draw a common minimum programme.
