BANGALORE: Karnataka Governor HR Bhardwaj on Friday appointed Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Siddaramaiah as the state’s chief minister. The 64-year-old leader is expected to be sworn in on Monday.

The high command named Siddaramaiah after majority of the party’s 121 newly-elected legislators preferred him over another aspirant and union Labour Minister Mallikarjun Kharge, who is a Lok Sabha member from Gulbarga, about 650km from here.

“The governor is pleased to appoint Siddaramaiah as the Chief Minister of Karnataka,” the Raj Bhavan office said in a communique.

After meeting Bhardwaj, Siddaramaiah said the governor had invited him to take oath of office soon.
