Bengaluru:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday congratulated Congress leaders Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar, who were sworn in as Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister of Karnataka, respectively.

Along with Mr Siddaramaiah and Mr Shivakumar, eight MLAs were sworn in as Ministers.

“Congratulations to Shri @siddaramaiah Ji on taking oath as Karnataka CM and Shri @DKShivakumar Ji on taking oath as Deputy CM. My best wishes for a fruitful tenure,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

Besides, former Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai congratulated his successor Mr Siddaramaiah upon taking oath as the new Chief Minister.

“Heartiest congratulations to Siddaramaiah for assuming the office as the new Chief Minister of Karnataka and his cabinet members,” the BJP leader tweeted.

Mr Siddaramaiah succeeded Mr Bommai as the Chief Minister exactly a week after Congress won the Assembly elections by bagging 135 seats in the 224-member House.
