Congress will announce Karnataka’s next CM tomorrow in Bengaluru
Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge will announce the name of Karnataka’s next CM tomorrow in Bengaluru. According to sources, Kharge will take the final decision after consulting UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and former party President Rahul Gandhi.
On Tuesday, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge met with the potential candidates DK Shivakumar and Siddaramaiah in New Delhi. Despite Congress’ clear mandate in the Karnataka assembly polls, suspense over the chief minister continues as senior leaders DK Shivakumar, who is the Karnataka Congress’ president, and Siddaramaiah, former chief minister and leader of the opposition are in the race.
The Congress won 135 seats in the recently held election to the 224-member Karnataka assembly.
