HD Kumaraswamy invites BSP Chief Mayawati for oath ceremony

New Delhi: Janta Dal-Secular leader and Karnataka Chief Minister-designate HD Kumaraswamy on Monday met BSP Supremo Mayawati and invited her for his oath ceremony on Wednesday in Bengaluru.

JD(S) contested the Karnataka Assembly Election in alliance with BSP.

Kumaraswamy also met Congress President Rahul Gandhi and set discuss the future of the Congress- JD(S) alliance in Karnataka.

“Ashok Gehlot, KC Venugopal and I briefed Rahul Gandhi on recent political developments in Karnataka. When Kumaraswamy meets Rahul, they will decide on the further strategy,” said senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu along with Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is also expected to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Kumaraswamy.

Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala invited HD Kumaraswamy on Saturday to form the government in the state after Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) B.S. Yeddyurappa stepped down ahead of the crucial floor test in the state assembly.
