Siddaramaiah, two dy CM's to take oath tomorrow

Last updated on: May 12, 2013 18:15 IST

Two deputy chief ministers along with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah are set to take the oath on Monday. Siddarmaiah will be sworn in at 11.40 am at the Kanteerva stadium on Monday.

Two deputy CM's will also take oath although their names have not been made public yet. Two Dy CMs are being appointed keeping in mind the caste equations.

The Congress may appoint a Lingayat and a candidate from the minority community for the same. Congress chief G Parameshwar, will also be given a berth in the cabinet.

Siddaramaiah, who hails from Kuruba community, the third largest in the state, was then pipped by J H Patel. Both under Deve Gowda and Patel, he served as finance minister.

With Siddaramaiah all set to install his cabinet next week, lobbying for ministerial berths has intensified.

Senior party leaders including D K Shivakumar, R V Deshpande, Shamanur Shivashankarappa and T B Jayachandra are likely to get plum ministries in the cabinet, party sources said.
