Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has said that he would discuss the cabinet expansion with the BJP high command during his visit to New Delhi on July 24.

The Chief Minister would be leaving for the national capital with delegations of various departments on Sunday, July 24. CM Bommai is also set to attend the swearing-in ceremony of President-elect Droupadi Murmu on Monday.

Addressing reporters on Wednesday night, Basavaraj Bommai had said, “I will leave for New Delhi on July 24 to attend the oath taking ceremony of the new President on July 25. I will discuss cabinet expansion if the party top brasses raise the issue.”

If the party high command agrees, the Karnataka cabinet expansion will likely take place in August first week.

The cabinet expansion in Karnataka had been a talking point for almost a year ever since Basavaraj Bommai took over as the chief minister.

There are five ministerial posts lying vacant. Among the aspirants for the coveted posts is BJP’s Shivamogga MLA K S Eshwarappa, who got a clean chit from police in connection with contractor Santosh Patil suicide case.
