In the list of Karnataka Minister, Congress Chief’s son, Lingayat leader

Today, party president Mallikarjun Kharge endorsed the first list of eight cabinet ministers in the Karnataka government who will be sworn in today. This follows the Congress’s overwhelming electoral victory in Karnataka and a week of confusion over the top job.

The party confronts a formidable challenge in selecting ministerial configurations that strike a balance between representatives from all communities, regions, factions, and both the older and younger generations of legislators.

Eight newly elected MLAs with diverse representation—G Parameshwara (SC), KH Muniyappa (SC), KJ George (Minority-Christian), MB Patil (Lingayat), Satish Jarkiholi (ST-Valmiki), Priyank Kharge (SC, and AICC President M Mallikarjun Kharge’s son), Ramalinga Reddy (Reddy), and BZ Zameer Ahmed Khan (Minority-Mus)—will take the oath of office along with Chief Minister-designate Siddaramaiah and state Congress President DK Shivakumar as Deputy

Mr. Kharge stated that he will be present at the event and will be departing for Bengaluru shortly.

“Today is the swearing-in ceremony of the Chief Minister, Deputy Chief Minister and eight MLAs who will take oath as the ministers (in the state cabinet), everyone is attending it. I am going for the same. It is a matter of delight that a new and strong Congress government has come to power in Karnataka. This will benefit Karnataka, and it is creating a good environment in the country,” Mr Kharge told news agency ANI.

Mr. Siddaramaiah and Mr. Shivakumar were in Delhi until late Friday night, discussing the names of ministers to be inducted into the new cabinet and the allocation of portfolios with the party’s high command.

According to Governor Thaawarchand Gehlot’s invitation from Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, the Chief Minister and his Cabinet will take the oath of office and secrecy at 12.30 p.m. at Bangalore’s Sree Kanteerava Stadium. When he became Chief Minister for the first time in 2013, Siddaramaiah also took his oath here.

The event may serve as a display of strength for the opposition parties, which are attempting to unite in preparation for the Lok Sabha elections of 2024.
