HD Kumaraswamy and Deputy chief minister, G Parameshwara of the Congress were sworn in today in a star-studded affair with a galaxy of opposition leaders displaying unity for building a possible anti-BJP bloc for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
With the fall of BJP's three-day-old government headed by BS Yeddyurappa on May 19, Governor Vajubhai Vala had invited the Kumaraswamy-led coalition to form the government and prove its majority in the House within 15 days.
The Congress-JDS coalition, which claims the support of 117 members, has decided on Congress' Ramesh Kumar, a former minister, as its candidate for the speaker's post, while the deputy speaker's post has been given to a JD(S) candidate.
