Krishna is 16th Karnataka CM
Somanahalli Mallaiah Krishna was today sworn in as the 16th chief minister of Karnataka at an impressive function held in the portals of the Vidhana Soudha.
Governor Khurshed Alam Khan administered the oath of office and secrecy to the 67-year-old Congress leader in the presence of a large gathering.
It was a festive mood in front of the state secretariat and Krishna took the oath amidst bursting of crackers by his followers.
Krishna would induct the council of ministers at a later date after consultations with the Congress high command.
Krishna, who had been in and out of state politics, had been deputy chief minister in the Moily cabinet during 1992-94. He became Karnataka Congress unit president in February this year and played a pivotal role in the Congress' return to power in the state.
He was elected to the assembly from Maddur in Mandya district.
