Karnataka Chief minister to expand his cabinet on Friday

Bengaluru, Jun 13 (UNI) The much awaited Cabinet expansion, which was postponed for tomorrow, will be held tomorrow, amid reports that JD(S) MLA from Hunasur Assembly constituency H Vishwanath may also join the ministry.

The Cabinet expansion, which was supposed to take place on Monday, last, was deferred for Friday following the sudden demise of renowned writer and Jnanapith award recipient Girish Karnad.

There are three berths vacant in the cabinet, two of them belongs to the JD(S) quota in the coalition government and Chief minister is expected to induct two Independent MLAs, Nagesh (Mulabagilu) and R Shankar (Ranebennur), who had switched sides from the BJP to the JD(S)-Congress Alliance recently.

Chief minister, along with two independent MLAs, is also expected to induct H Vishwanath, who had resigned to the post of the State JD(S) president, and did not yield to the pressure from the party leaders to withdraw the resignation.

The swearing-in ceremony is scheduled to be held at Raj bhavan in the afternoon, where the Governor Vajubhai Vala would administer the oath office to the newly inducted ministers.
