Karnataka Congress chief DK Shivakumar on Thursday, May 18, said that he agreed to becoming the deputy CM of the state in the larger interests of the party. 

Addressing the media, Shivakumar said, “The Congress party we have a commitment before the people of Karnataka. Parliament elections are ahead. So, I must bow to the AICC president and the Gandhi family. In the larger interest of the party (I have agreed to the formula) and why not, because sometimes the ice should break. Ultimately, there is a responsibility towards what we have a commitment to the people of Karnataka, and we have to deliver.”

In the early hours, the Congress named Siddaramaiah as the CM of Karnataka, ending days of deadlock since it won the assembly election with 135 seats.
