CM B S Yediyurappa may get chance to expand his one man ministry only after Aug 15


Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa will expand his ministry only after August 15. Talking to media persons in Belagavi, about 400 km from Bengaluru, Yediyurappa said on Sunday that the party leadership has asked him to focus on tackling worst floods and rehabilitation of affected people in the state.

Yediyurappa, who accompanied Union Home Minister Amit Shah during his aerial survey of flood affected areas, said he would visit Delhi after August 15 to discuss ministry expansion. Opposition parties have been criticising Yediyurappa over delay in ministry expansion. Yediyurappa took oath alone more than two weeks ago.
