KPCC president G Parameshwar, recently elected to Karnataka Legislative Council, took oath of office along with three other newly-elected members here today.

Dr Parameshwar led the party along with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to power after a gap of eight years by defeating the BJP in 2013 Assembly elections.

There had been constant demand from his supporters that SC/ST leader Dr Parameshwar should be made the Deputy Chief Minister. In this backdrop he has entered the Council being elected from the Assembly segment, riding on the majority Congress has in the lower House.
