Karnataka CM BS Yediyurappa confident of his Cabinet plans

Saturday, 21 Nov, 1.34 am

Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Friday expressed confidence that new ministers will take oath in 3-4 days, even though sources in the BJP hinted that the exercise (expansion or reshuffle) could be delayed further.

One section of the BJP top leadership is of the view that the exercise should be held after bypolls to the Belagavi Lok Sabha constituency and Maski and Basavakalyan Assembly segments. These bypolls are yet to be announced.

'Some party leaders in Delhi believe that if Yediyurappa goes for a Cabinet exercise now, it will definitely lead to dissident activities by legislators who lose out in the ministerial race.
