Celebrations begin outside Kumaraswamy's residence ahead of swearing-in ceremony

Celebrations have begun outside Karnataka chief minister designate HD Kumaraswamy's residence in Bengaluru. Kumaraswamy will take oath as Chief Minister of the state today. He had earlier said that he will prove the majority in just 24 hours after taking the oath. Kumaraswamy was invited by Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to form government in the state, after Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) BS Yeddyurappa stepped down ahead of the floor test in the state assembly.
