BENGALURU: Union Home Minister Amit Shah will lead the BJP's core committee meeting on Friday evening, where cabinet expansion is expected to be finalised. The meeting will also address the state's evolving position in light of recent developments such as the hijab row, the prohibition on Muslim traders in temples, and the halal ban campaign.
On Thursday, Shah arrived. State party in-charge Arun Singh, National General Secretary C.T. Ravi, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, state party President Nalin Kumar Kateel, and former Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa would all be present at the meeting.
