New Delhi sources reported that ahead of his swearing-in as the Karnataka's new chief minister, JD(S) chief H D Kumaraswamy tonight met Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to finalize the modalities of government formation and ministerial berth sharing between the two post-poll allies. Meanwhile Congress has mooted two deputy chief ministers for the numerically strong party in order to strike a balance with the JD(S) but the regional party is believed to be not in favor of this proposal.
Accordingly KPCC chief G Parameshwara is among the frontrunners for the deputy chief minister's post. Moreover Kumaraswamy, who will be sworn in as chief minister on Wednesday for the second time in 12 years, flew into the capital this afternoon and began his engagements with a meeting with pre-poll ally BSP chief Mayawati. BSP bagged 1 seat.
Furthermore during his 20-minute meeting with Sonia
and Rahul, the Congress President, Kumaraswamy is understood to have discussed
the nitty-gritty of Cabinet formation on the number of ministerial berths the
Congress and the JD(S) would get. Media report added that the meeting took
place at Rahul's Tughlak Lane residence. According to report Kumaraswamy is
expected to take the floor test within 24 hours after being sworn in.
