January 29, 2006 19:34 IST
B S Yediyurappa, deputy chief minister designate of the new Bharatiya Janata Party-Janata Dal (Secular) coalition government to be sworn-in in Karnataka on February 3, Sunday said the government would formulate a Common Minimum Programme and strive to provide good governance compared to the previous Dharam Singh-led ministry.
He said a full fledged ministry would be sworn in on February 3 with the BJP coming to power for the first time in southern India. Though the BJP secured 79 seats in the 2004 elections and emerged the single largest party it had to wait for 20 months to assume power, he added.
