"Which Ministry, Bro? How many Ministers?''The game has started. In Karnataka, the portfolios are now being distributed. The JD(S) camp, seen as having wrested the advantage from its coalition partner by securing plum ministries, is facing internal turbulence, with too many senior legislators in contention for the stipulated twelve berths. Unable to solve the problem amicably, the party has now decided to fill up seven berths out of the twelve. Mr. Kumaraswamy, the Chief Minister, is set to keep the finance portfolio with himself along with another one, maybe information. Kumaraswamy's brother Mr. HD Revanna is likely to get the lucrative public works department and power portfolios.
On the other hand, the coalition partner Congress has twenty-two portfolios, out of which it is likely to induct only eleven ministers in the first phase. Understandably, not everything is quiet in that camp also.
Another drama is unfolding. Let us wait patiently and watch.
