Bengaluru: On Tuesday, Ivan D'Souza, the Congress legislators expressed anger over the appointment of three deputy Chief Ministers in Karnataka stating, "this government is against the verdict of the people." Speaking to ANI in Bengaluru, the Congress leader stated, "This is the first time in the history of Karnataka that three deputy Chief Ministers have been appointed.
