Congress leader Parameshwara likely to become Karnataka Deputy CM
Senior congress leader G Parameshwara is likely to become the chief minister of the Indian state of Karnataka, which recently witnessed a highly suspense-filled assembly election.
Earlier, the Congress and JD(S), in order to prevent the triumph of the saffron regime, entered into a post-poll alliance and agreed to make the JD(S) nominee as the Chief Minister candidate, when they indentified that the BJP was at least six to seven seats short of attaining the simple majority required to form the government in the state and if the second largest and the third largest parties form an alliance they could reach that magic number needed to rule the state.
JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy is the nominee of his party, which emerged as the third largest party in the assembly election on the basis of the total number of elected lawmakers, for the Chief Ministerial seat offered to them by the second largest party of the state.
Kumaraswamy will take the oath as the Chief Minister of the state today. As per a report, there will be thirty-four ministers under him in his ministry. Of this thirty-four, around twenty-two ministers will be from the congress party and nearly twelve ministers will be from the JD(S).
