H D Kumaraswamy Career
Kumaraswamy entered politics by winning from Kanakapura in the 1996 general elections. He sought re-election from Kanakapura in 1998 and lost to M. V. Chandrashekara Murthy. This was Kumaraswamy’s worst defeat ever where he lost by such a margin that he even forfeit his deposit. He again contested unsuccessfully for a Sathanur assembly seat in 1999. In 2004, he was elected to represent the Ramanagara assembly segment. When the 2004 state elections resulted in a hung assembly with no party getting enough seats to form a government, the Indian National Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) (JD(S)) parties decided to come together and form a coalition government. Known for his adaptability and friendly nature, Dharam Singh of the Congress was the unanimous choice of both parties to head the government. He was sworn in as Chief Minister on 28 May 2004. Forty-two MLAs of Janata Dal (Secular) under Kumaraswamy’s leadership left the coalition and the government collapsed. On 28 January 2006, Karnataka Governor T. N. Chaturvedi invited Kumaraswamy to form the government in the state after the resignation of the Congress Government led by Dharam Singh. He reportedly heard often saying he is an accidental politician but one should admit that his administration was most matured than most people thought it would be.
He was Chief Minister of Karnataka from 4 February 2006 to 9 October 2007. GDP of the state recorded all-time high during this term and also he was called people’s CM. On 27 September 2007, Kumaraswamy said that he would leave office on 3 October as part of a power-sharing agreement between the Janata Dal (Secular) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), despite the calls of some legislators in the JD(S) for him to remain in office for the time being, due to complications in arranging the transfer of power. However, on 4 October 2007, he refused to transfer power to the BJP. Finally, on 8 October 2007, he tendered his resignation to Governor Rameshwar Thakur, and the state was put under President’s rule two days later. However, he reconciled later and decided to offer support to the BJP. BJP’s B. S. Yeddyurappa was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Karnataka on 12 November 2007.
After the untimely demise of Karnataka state JD(S) President Merajuddin Patel, he was elected unopposed as President of the state unit.
However, after the by-election results of Bangalore Rural Lok Sabha constituency and Mandya in which his party candidates lost, he resigned from the post of President of the Janata Dal (Secular) State unit, and as leader of the opposition. However, party cadres succeeded in convincing him not to quit as leader of opposition in the Karnataka Assembly. In September 2013, A. Krishnappa was selected as Janata Dal-Secular’s president for Karnataka, filling the vacancy left by Kumaraswamy.
In November 2014 Kumaraswamy was elected as Karnataka state Janata Dal (Secular) President.
