Bengaluru: JD(S) leader HD Kumaraswamy and party MLAs show victory sign to celebrate after chief minister BS Yeddyurappa announced his resignation before the floor test, at Vidhana Soudha, in Bengaluru, on Saturday.

BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa's decision to resign as the chief minister of Karnataka Assembly before taking the floor test on Saturday has cleared the path for Congress-JD(S) alliance to take over the reigns of the government in the state. Alliance's CM face HD Kumaraswamy on Saturday met Governor to stake claim to power with a total strength of 117 MLAs, including two independents.

 
Although Governor Vajubhai Vala invited Kumaraswamy to take the oath of office at 12:30 pm on Monday, the JD(S) chief postponed the ceremony until Wednesday in view of Rajiv Gandhi's death anniversary. 

Meanwhile, the reports say that Kumaraswamy plans to visit Delhi on Monday to extend a personal invitation to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi for his swearing-in ceremony. Apart from the Congress bigwigs, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, Telanaga CM Chandrashekhar Rao and Andhra CM N Chandra Babu Naidu will also attend the event on Wednesday.

Since Congress had to extend support to a minority JD(S) with only 38 seats to keep the BJP away from power, the outgoing party is not in condition to make any demands for now. During the post-poll alliance negotiations, the Congress was granted the post of deputy CM, for which KPCC chief G Parmeshwara has been selected. Rest of the cabinet is expected to look something like this:
