Mangalore Today News Network

Udupi: Congress-JD(S) coalition has got the opportunity to form the state government following B.S.Yeddyurappa resignation from CM position within 55 hours of achieving it.

If BJP government was created, any one of the five MLA’s from the district would have definitely received the ministerial berth. But, now congress and JDS(S) will form the state government and there is not one MLA from the district belonging to either parties. Hence, the curiosity on who will become the district in-charge minister has risen.

In the present scenario, MLC Pratapchandra Shetty from Kundapura has the higher opportunity. Normally in a coalition government, the two parties divide the districts amongst themselves. Therefore, Congress might take both D.K. and Udupi districta or one district may go to Congress while the other goes to JD(S).
