Karnataka: CM Yediyurappa allocates portfolios to 17 newly appointed Ministers

In Karnataka, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa yesterday allocated portfolios to 17 newly appointed Ministers and among them named three Deputy Chief Ministers. The Ministers were inducted into the Cabinet nearly a week ago.

Among the three Deputy Chief Ministers, Mr Govind Karjol has been given the charge of PWD and Social welfare while Ashwath Narayan has been entrusted with portfolio of Higher Education, Information Technology and Biotechnology along with Science and Technology. 

Another Deputy Chief Minister Laxman Savadi has been given the Transport Department. AIR Correspondent reports that this is for the first time in the state that three Deputy CMs are appointed. In the previous tenure of Yediyurappa between 2008 and 2013, R Ashok and K S Eeshwarappa were appointed as Deputy Chief Ministers. 

The appointment of Laxman Savadi as Deputy CM, has surprised many as he had lost the assembly election this year. In another new appointment, the Member of Parliament from Dakshin Kannada Naleen Kumar Kateel will resume charge today morning as BJP State President.
