Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister D V
Sadananda Gowda is likely to expand his ministry by this week
end to fill up 12 vacancies, Minister for Home and Transport R
Ashoka said here on Wednesday.
"The next round of ministry expansion is expected by this
week end," Ashoka told reporters here.
Gowda is currently in New Delhi holding consultations with
the BJP high command and meeting Union ministers.
On August 8, Gowda inducted 21 ministers with cabinet rank,
but left out mining magnates Reddy brothers and their close
associate Sreeramulu following their indictment in the
Lokayukta report on illegal mining.
