Differences over sharing of portfolios among the Congress and the JD (S) have been resolved, Chief Minister H D   Kumaraswamy said after meeting senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad in New Delhi on Monday. 

Kumaraswamy, who landed here on his first official visit after becoming the chief minister, met Azad at an undisclosed venue and discussed the issue of sharing of portfolios. 

Speaking to reporters after the meeting, the chief minister said the discussion over which party would get the finance portfolio was also held. 

"By tonight or tomorrow morning (Tuesday), portfolio sharing issue will be finalised. We have already discussed all issues. The Congress leaders will discuss with Congress president Rahul Gandhi and communicate their decision. All differences will be resolved," the chief minister said. 

"No confusion, No problem in portfolio allocation. Both the Congress and the JD (S) will work together in the allocation of portfolios," he said. 

"Our government will complete five years without any problems. Both the parties will work in tandem in the formation of the coordination committee as well as preparing the common minimum programme," Kumaraswamy said. 

Both the Congress and the JD (S) leaders will work for giving a stable government he said. 

When asked for his reaction over his Sunday's statement that he is obliged to the Congress, the chief minister said, "Since our party failed to get a full majority I said I am in the obligation of the Congress for implementing welfare programmes. I made this statement in the context of waiving farmers' loans and other welfare programmes. No need to give political colour to this statement."
