Arvind Kejriwal To Attend Kumaraswamy's Oath Taking Ceremony In Karnataka

Amit Shah

The coordination committee will have five-six members who will ensure smooth functioning of the coalition government.

The top leadership of the two parties decided to make a new beginning leaving behind the past, when they had come together and fallen apart, and vowed to have "a long-term relationship". But both JDS and Congress have denied it and said final modalities are all that remains.

Sources said while the Congress has mooted two deputy chief ministers, the JD (S) is believed to be not in favour. BSP bagged one seat. Rahul had earlier spoken to Kumaraswamys father, former prime minister HD Deve Gowda, before the decision was taken to move the MLAs to Hyderabad. "H.D. Kumaraswamy is very popular in this part even today, and our priority will be to give good administration in the coming year to fight the BJP", he said.

Rahul confirmed his presence at the swearing-in ceremony. Kumaraswamy has also invited Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI-M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury to attend his swearing-in.

After an hour-long meeting, the trio headed to meet Rahul and handed him a report about the developments that took place in Karnataka in the last seven days.

"There is no bargain". We must work together. All these issues are not yet discussed. "Governor invited BJP since we were the second largest party and claimed first", Shah said. "Local leaders and he'll sit together tomorrow to finalise things", Kumaraswamy told reporters after the meeting.

K C Venugopal, AICC in-charge of Karnataka, was also present at the meeting.

Both Congress and JD-S MLAs will remain confined to their hotels till the floor test, according to reports from Bengaluru.

The Congress and the Janata Dal Secular (JD-S) stitched a post-poll alliance soon after the BJP fell short of the majority in Karnataka Assembly elections.

"He assured Rahul Gandhi that he will continue to seek guidance both on governance, policy and welfare issues which is the agenda of the Congress and JD (S) coalition".

He recalled that in 1980, the Congress had formed the government in Goa by striking a post-poll alliance with the Maharashtra Gomantak Party, although it had not won a single seat. "Why don't they say in the same breath that BJP wrested power from them in 14 states since 2014?" he asked.

However, the need to keep communal forces away from power made the Congress lend support to JD-S, Parameshwara said.

He said the electoral verdict was a clear rejection of Congress rule and justified BJP's bid to form the government in Karnataka.

"We may see hard times ahead".
