Congress High Command Announces Siddaramaiah as Chief Minister of Karnataka, DK Shivakumar to be Deputy CM


After intense deliberations and power struggles lasting four days, the Congress high command has finally reached a decision regarding the chief ministerial position in Karnataka. Veteran party leader Siddaramaiah has been chosen to return as the state’s chief minister for a second term, with DK Shivakumar, the state Congress chief, appointed as his deputy. The much-anticipated oath ceremony is scheduled to take place in Bengaluru on May 20.

Following the Congress party’s resounding victory in the Karnataka polls held on May 10, both Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar traveled to Delhi to meet with the central leadership. Multiple rounds of discussions were conducted by Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, yet the deadlock persisted regarding power sharing. While both leaders aspired for the prestigious top position, Siddaramaiah secured the support of the party leadership due to the majority of MLAs rallying behind him.

Earlier today, supporters of DK Shivakumar gathered outside Rahul Gandhi’s residence in Delhi, displaying placards and demanding the chief ministerial role for their leader. Similarly, Siddaramaiah’s supporters congregated outside his residence in Bengaluru, expressing their enthusiasm by showering milk over his posters. With the Congress party’s decision now made public, all eyes are on the upcoming oath ceremony, which is expected to mark the beginning of a new chapter in Karnataka’s governance under the leadership of Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar.
