The committee will have three members from the Congress and two from the JD(S).
A five member committee of Congress and JD(S) will come up with a draft common minimum programme (CMP) within the next 10-days by integrating the “practical” promises made in the election manifestos and the Congress and the JD(S).

The committee will have three members from the Congress and two from the JD(S).

The Congress-JD(S) Coordination Committee, headed by former CM Siddaramaiah and consisting of AICC General Secretary K.C.Venugopal, CM H.D.Kumaraswamy, Dy CM G.Parameshwar and JD(S) national secretary general Danish Ali, held its first meeting on Thursday. The committee will vet the draft CMP, make changes if necessary and approve it.

The CMP will provide the broad policy direction to the coalition regime.

The coordination committee also decided that the coalition government continue with the flagship and other popular programmes of the previous government, and those mentioned in the Budget presented ahead of the Assembly polls, said Siddaramaiah, who briefed the media about the decisions.

In an effort to quell dissidence within the Congress, the committee also decided that the government complete appointments to boards and corporations within a week. The CM and Deputy CM will discuss, and the first 30 positions will go to MLAs. The Congress will get two-thirds of the positions while the rest will go to JD(S), Siddaramaiah said.
