The decision on the cabinet expansion was taken after 13 aspirants, including ten who defected from Congress-JD(S), helped BJP bring down the H D Kumaraswamy-led coalition government and won the by-polls on the ruling party ticket in December. These MLAs were promised to be inducted into the cabinet. The swearing-in ceremony would take place on Thursday at 10.30 a.m at the Raj Bhavan.
