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. I believe that this decision is not taken by B S Yediyurappa but by the RSS. The direction of distributing the portfolios have come from Nagpur. This government is against the verdict of the people."

Yesterday, B S Yediyurappa, the Karnataka Chief Minister appointed Ashwath Narayan CN, Govind Makthappa Karajol and Laxman Sangappa Savadi as the deputy chief ministers. Notably, Laxman Savadi is not an elected MLA or MLC but has been appointed as one of the deputy chief ministers. Ivan D'Souza also expressed disappointment over Jagadish Shettar, the former chief minister being given the post of a cabinet minister and stated: "he must resign if he has self-respect." "If former Chief Jagdish Shettar has any self-respect he should resign and leave the government. How can he work under his juniors. If you are working for the people, you should have self-confidence. He must come out and resign," he added.
