BENGALURU: While the Congress may have two-third of the cabinet portfolios vis-a-vis its coalition partner JD(S) in the Karnataka government, the regional party is all set to become the “big brother” as it has bagged the plum portfolios in the deal reached between the two parties.

Out of 34 portfolios, the 12 which the JD(S) has got under the deal, traditionally receive sizeable budgetary allocations every year. The JD(S) has managed to secure the big four portfolios of finance, public works department (PWD), excise and energy.

The portfolios also give the party considerable control over revenue collection which comes via excise and transport department and expenditure which happens through PWD and energy departments.

AICC general secretary and Karnataka in charge KC Venugopal, while explaining the discussions which went behind the portfolio divisions hinted that finance portfolio was the biggest hurdle between the coalition partners. It was finally settled after AICC president Rahul Gandhi agreed to hand it over to chief minister H D Kumaraswamy.

Meanwhile, the other stumbling block in portfolio allocations, which was rumoured to be sought by Congress troubleshooter D K Shivakumar, the energy department has also been given to the JD(S) thereby giving the regional party a bigger responsibility in the coalition government.

The other big portfolios, to be bagged by the JD(S), includes education, transport, co-operation and information departments.

In education, the JD(S) has agreed to leave out medical education department for the Congress party while holding on to primary, secondary and higher education portfolios.

In transport, the coalition government has not spelt out on whether the Metro rail corporation will be included or not.

The party has also managed to bag the co-operation department which gives the JD(S) control of all co-operative societies in the state.

The JD(S) has also managed to wrest control of agriculture allied portfolios including animal husbandry, fisheries, horticulture and sericulture.

While the coalition partners have drawn up 34 portfolios, on ground, it can also be increased and divided among their ministerial aspirants.
