Mangaluru: Six-time MLA from Sullia S Angara is more likely to get a ministerial berth, informed top BJP sources.
It is also gathered that Angara, who is currently staying in Bengaluru is preparing to be sworn-in as a new minister of the Chief Minister Yediyurappa led BJP government.
Another senior MLA from Udupi district, Kota Srinivasa Poojary, is also expected to get a ministerial berth, informed sources.
The expansion of the Karnataka cabinet will take place on Tuesday and 13-14 ministers are likely to be inducted, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa said on Monday.
“The cabinet expansion will take place between 10:30 and 11:30 am tomorrow. I have already written a letter to the Governor in this regard. I have asked the Chief Secretary to make all arrangements,” he said.
Speaking to reporters here, Yediyurappa said after the expansion, a cabinet meeting will be held.
Having run the government with a “one-man cabinet” for over 20 days, Yediyurappa on Saturday got a go-ahead from BJP national president Amit Shah to undertake the exercise on August 20.
Yediyurappa, who took oath as chief minister on July 26 and proved his government’s majority on the floor of the Assembly on July 29, is yet to induct any minister into his cabinet.
The chief minister and the state leadership is expected to get clear instructions from the high command about those to be inducted into the Ministry, by Monday afternoon.
