Total revamp of cabinet after March next: Yeddyurappa

New Delhi: Karnataka Chief Minister B S
Yeddyurappa, who has recently bought peace with dissidents,
today said that he would undertake total revamp of his Cabinet
after March next.

"A complete revamp of the ministry will be undertaken at
the completion of two years," he told reporters here noting
that after March, his effort would also be to induct some
women ministers.

Significantly, the Chief Minister said "senior people" in
the Government will be given "some other responsibilities" in
the exercise.

The Chief Minister bought peace with dissidents after the
BJP high command hammered out a compromise formula that has
already seen the entry of two prominent dissidents--former
Assembly Speaker Jagdish Shettar and M P Renukacharya into the
Cabinet and exit of the CM`s close associate, Shobha
Karandlaje, who was the lone woman minister.

Yeddurappa said there is no scope for cabinet expansion
till the next Budget session and "we may think of this only
after two years of government".

He struck a philosophical note on induction of his arch
critic Renukacharya saying in politics sometimes decisions
have to be taken which were not to one`s liking.

"In politics we have to make some decisions. Sometimes we
may like them, sometimes we may not like them. Legislators
wanted it," he said.
