Bangalore: Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa
today left for New Delhi to seek the party high command`s nod
for his proposed cabinet expansion.

Yeddyurappa, who held discussions with a BJP core
committee meeting here since yesterday, said transparency will
be maintained on the expansion.

He is accompanied by state BJP President K S
Eshwarappa.

Yeddyurappa, who has been mulling over cabinet
expansion to fill up three vacancies, had encountered some
snags at the state level following opposition to some of the
names in the probables list. He is said to be keen on
re-inducting Shobha Karandlaje and V Somanna, considered to be
his confidants.

However, a section of the partymen are opposed to
their return to the ministry, particularly that of Somanna,
who crossed over to BJP from Congress.

Upto four ministers were expected to face the axe and
three aspirants were expected come on board following the
reshuffle in the 28 month-old ministry.

Party sources said the cabinet expansion was likely to
take place this week.
