Karnataka Chief Minister Expands Cabinet By Inducting 2 Ministers
By Ndtv 14-Jun-2019
In the much-awaited expansion, R Shankar and H Nagesh were sworn in as cabinet-rank ministers by Governor Vajubhai Vala, who administered them the oath of office and secrecy at a ceremony at the Raj Bhavan.
Mr Shankar had served as minister during the initial days of the Kumaraswamy government but was dropped from the cabinet during the rejig in December last year.
He and Mr Nagesh had sided with the BJP and written to the governor withdrawing support to the government.
As the BJP failed in its alleged attempts to topple the coalition government, the two lawmakers made a U-turn and moved closer to the coalition.
The two were inducted from the JD(S) and Congress'' share in the ministry, in an attempt to block chances of their switching over to the BJP whom the ruling coalition has accused of trying to dislodge the Kumaraswamy government.
क्या कांग्रेस का महागठबंधन से अलग रह के चुनाव लड़ने की वजह से बीजेपी को पूर्ण बहुमत मिला है?
