    Karnataka CM and DY CM

    Bengaluru: If party sources are to be believed then the Janata Dal-Secular-Congress coalition in Karnataka has solved the cabinet tussle.

    The JD-S will get the finance ministry, while the Congress will get to keep the home ministry.

    Apart from the home ministry, the Congress would get heavy industries, energy, IT/BT, travel and education portfolios. While JD-S will hold revenue and co-operative affairs ministries.

    The Congress and JD-S formed a post-poll alliance on May 15 after the BJP had staked claim of forming the government. But the move turned out to be a major embarrassment for BS Yeddyurappa, who had to quit as chief minister within days of staking claim.

    HD Kumaraswamy was then sworn in as the Karnataka chief minister and G Paramewshara took over as his deputy.
