The dias set up for the swearing in of Kumaraswamy as Chief Minister (CM) of Karnataka became a meeting point of all regional parties. Even die-hard enemies, the Congress and Chandrababu came together, along with the rest, to shake hands and wave to the crowds. Mamata Banerjee, Mayawati, Chandrababu and Sonia Gandhi were joined in Rahul Gandhi, who shook hands with the AP CM. They all stood on dias together waving to the crowds. The entire, rare scenario spoke of the Opposition unity in the coming polls.
