List of Karnataka ministers

Are you looking for the list of Karnataka ministers? This resource provides the list of current ministers in Karnataka.

Current state government is formed by BJP and the chief minister of Karnataka is Mr. B. S. Yeddyurappa. The government was formed in June 2008, after the assembly election held in May 2008.

In the last state assembly election, BJP emerged as the single largest party with 110 assembly seats in the 224 seat assembly. With just few seats short for absolute majority, BJP was invited to form the government in Karnataka. Several independent candidates offered support for the BJP government and many of them were made ministers in Karnataka.
