“G. Parameshwara will remain as the Deputy Chief Minister till the Prime Minister takes the oath, after that he will not be a minister and this government will not remain in power as it will collapse next month after 10th June,” KN Rajanna said.

In 2019 Lok Sabha election BJP+ had a landslide victory by getting 27 out 28 Lok Sabha seats, a historic win for the saffron party in south India.
