Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Saturday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and congratulated him for the massive poll victory in the recently held national polls. ‘I met Prime Minister and congratulated him on being re-elected as Prime Minister’, Karnataka Chief Minister said in a tweet.

Karnataka Chief Minister also met Union Water Resources Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and discuss various irrigation projects in the state.

Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy is in the national capital to attend the 5th NITI Aayog meeting slated to be held Saturday evening. Prime Minister Narendra Modirn will chair the fifth meeting Niti Aayog’s Governing Council today. This will be PM Modi’s first meeting after storming back to power in the recently held national polls.

The Governing Council of the Niti Aayog includes all the Chief Ministers, Governors of State, Lieutenant Governors of Union Territories, several Union Ministers and other officials.

Responding to media over the Karnataka Cabinet Expansion issue, HD Kumaraswamy said that the issue is political and he knows to manage that.

Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Friday expanded his State Cabinet by inducting two more Lawmakers. Two MLAs – R. Shankar and H. Nagesh – were inducted oath by the State Governor Vajubhai Vala at Raj Bhawan.

The move to expand cabinet is seen as an attempt to pacify the growing dissent among some of the Lawmakers in the state. After this expansion, there is still one vacancy in the Kumaraswamy-led Cabinet in the state.

The JD-S and Congress Coalition government in the state is facing threat with many of legislators reportedly upset and the move is keeping the government intact.

The Congress-JD(S) together has 117 MLAs in Karnataka Assembly earlier with Congress 79, JDS 37 and one from BSP, while BJP has 105 in the 224-member Assembly. The halfway mark is 113.

Congress after Karnataka State Polls last year has extended Support to JD(S) and Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy with an aim to keep BJP out of the power.

Congress-JD(S) alliance faced a crushing defeat in national polls with BJP bagged 25 Lok Sabha Seat. While JD(S)-Congress Coalition which is in power in the state managed to won one seat each.
