“I will get to know about it only after discussion with the party high command,” Bommai told reporters in response to a question about whether it will be cabinet expansion or reshuffle this time.
Asked whether new faces will be given a chance in the cabinet, he said it will be known when the announcement is made.
There is pressure mounting on the CM to expand or rejig his cabinet soon, after the Assembly elections in five states recently.
Some legislators have even been advocating a Gujarat-like overhaul of the Karnataka Cabinet soon, to make way for new faces, ahead of the Assembly elections next year.
There are currently 29 Ministers in the State Cabinet, including the Chief Minister and after the recent resignation of Minister K S Eshwarappa, against the sanctioned strength of 34.
The cabinet exercise will be crucial ahead of the Assembly elections next year, in which the saffron party aims to return to power once again, and has set a target of winning a minimum of 150 seats in the 225-member House.
