I will expand ministry soon, says Yeddyurappa

Bangalore: Seeking to downplay the decision to shelve ministry expansion plan at the last minute, Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today said it was due to delay in finalising the names and he would soon set a new date for the exercise.

“Due to delay in finalising the names of those to be inducted into the ministry, I had to cancel today’s swearing in. I will set a new date and am sure to expand the ministry”, he told reporters here.

The Chief Minister said he would discuss the ministry expansion issue soon with party higher-ups.

Yeddyurappa, who recently survived a trust vote in the assembly, had decided to fill up four of the six vacant ministerial posts, but called it off after protests from some partymen.
