Prakash appointed K'taka Dy CM

August 06, 2005 19:41 IST

Revenue Minister M P Prakash was appointed Karnataka deputy chief minister in place of Janata Dal (Secular) rebel Siddaramaiah on Saturday.

Siddaramaiah was sacked on Friday as an upshot of his soured relations with party supremo H D Deve Gowda. Prakash continues to hold charge of revenue and 'muzrai' departments, a notification, issued after Governor T N Chaturvedi accepted the chief minister's recommendation, said.

Chief Minister N Dharam Singh, on whose recommendation Prakash was appointed as his deputy, has not been allocated the finance and excise portfolios held by Siddaramaiah.

Similarly, rural development and panchayat raj and textiles portfolios, held by H C Mahadevappa and Satish Jarkhiholi, who were dismissed along with Siddaramaiah, also remain unallocated.
