Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Sunday said that the cabinet expansion would take place on February 6, with 13 MLAs taking oath of office.
"The cabinet expansion will take place on February 6 with the oath-taking ceremony at the Raj Bhavan at 10.30 AM," he told reporters.
Thirteen MLAs, including 10 who had joined BJP from parties, including Congress and the JD(S), will take an oath, he said.
The cabinet expansion is on the cards for nearly two months ever since the BJP won the maximum number of seats in the December 5, 2019, by-polls and got a majority in the Karnataka assembly.
