Cabinet expansion in the afternoon: Karnataka CM

Karnataka CM Basavaraj Bommai on Wednesday said that the expansion of his cabinet will take place today. ''I have had detailed discussions with high command regarding the cabinet, yesterday and the day before. Most probably by 11 am you will get an official list (of new Ministers) from the Raj Bhavan, you in the media are running some names, but you will get an official list mostly by 11-11:30 am,'' Bommai said on his arrival from Delhi.

Speaking to reporters at the airport here, he said the new cabinet Ministers will be sworn in at 2:15 pm. Later at Vidhana Soudha, the Chief Minister said, ''Detailed discussions have taken place with leadership, one or two issues are still pending, they have said they will inform by 10 am, they may inform anytime. Soon after that, I will send a list to Raj Bhavan.'' He said subsequently all those who will be drafted into the cabinet will be informed. Asked about the confusion till the last moment, Bommai said, ''No confusions, consultation is the process, we are a national party, that's all.'' To a query on the number of Deputy Chief Ministers, he said, all those details will be known when the list is released.

Let us tell you that Bommai, who was elected as the new leader of the BJP legislature party last week, following Yediyurappa's resignation, had taken oath as the Chief Minister on July 28. After taking oath as the Chief Minister Bommai visited Delhi twice. Hectic parleys were on between Bommai and central leaders in Delhi during the last couple of days, to finalize the cabinet expansion.
