Bengaluru: the list of the names of the ministers will be revealed by the BJP's central leadership by today (August 3) evening Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said. Replying to a query, Chief Minister Bommai said three lists of various combinations have been submitted and the national party president JP Nadda will finalise one list. He, however, expressed ignorance about the number of ministers to be included in the list.
Sharing details to media, Bommai said: "There is a parliamentary session. After the session, they (party's central leadership) will discuss and reveal the list (of names of the ministers). They themselves will reveal the list. We are expecting the final list by Tuesday evening. In all, we have discussed the one list between us. The central leadership will decide about whom to induct and whom to drop. Therefore, we will come to know who will be ministers and who will not."
Bommai said the central leadership would give a final shape to the main formula regarding the Cabinet formation. “The formula mainly gives clarity on the number of phases in which the Ministry should be formed, the number of legislators to be sworn in, and regional/social representation.”
