Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy and his wife Anitha Kumaraswamy will script history when they enter the State Assembly as lawmakers.

Anitha Kumaraswamy registered a record victory in the Ramanagara assembly segment after defeating BJP candidate L Chandrashekar, who interestingly 'retired’ from the contest and joined Congress two days before polls.

Ramanagara seat fell vacant after Kumaraswamy preferred to retain Chennapatna, the other constituency from where he had won in the Assembly election in May.

“This is a rare occasion when a chief minister will be entering Vidhana Soudha (seat of State legislature) with his wife. Never ever has a chief minister and his wife become MLAs together,” JD(S) MLA K Gopalaiah says.

However, the duo had earlier been members of the House together.

“While Kumaraswamy was Ramanagara MLA, Anitha represented Madhugiri assembly segment,” Gopalaiahadds.

There have been instances of Jarkiholi and Reddy brothers entering the assembly together and later becoming ministers.

There are also examples of father-son duo of M Krishnappa and Priyakrishna, and father-daughter duo of M Ramalinga Reddy and Sowmya Reddy entering the House.

This is, however, a rare occasion in the Karnataka assembly when a chief minister will be entering the House with his wife.
