Did not discuss cabinet expansion: CM Bommai

New Delhi, May 21: The issue of cabinet expansion did not come up for discussion with the party top brass as the deliberations had to be focussed on elections to BBMP and local bodies in the backdrop of Supreme Court order in this regard, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said.

Speaking to media persons in New Delhi he said, “I met BJP state in-charge Arun Singh as instructed by Home Minister Amit Shah. We discussed the Legislative Council and Rajya Sabha elections. I provided details about the list submitted.”

May 24 is the last day for filing nominations for Legislative Council polls. Decisions have to be made urgently. May 31 is the last day for filing nominations for Rajya Sabha elections. Arun Singh has been apprised of discussions held at the recent State Core Committee meeting. He has said that he would take the decision at the earliest,” Bommai said.
