Bengaluru: With the cabinet expansion on cards, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa is scheduled to visit New Delhi on Wednesday.

As per the tentative schedule shared by the Chief Minister's Office, BS Yediyurappa will take a special flight from HAL Airport in Bengaluru at 11:30am to reach the national capital at 2:30pm.

Based on the report, after spending the entire day meeting the central leadership of BJP, Yediyurappa is scheduled to return to Bengaluru at 11:30pm.

Earlier in October, Yediyurappa had said that a cabinet expansion and reshuffle was likely to take place after the results of the bypolls held to two assembly seats, Rajarajeshwari Nagar and Shira.

The BJP had won both the seats with a comfortable majority as results were announced on November 10.

After the results of the bypolls were out, the Chief Minister had once again confirmed to the media that a cabinet expansion and reshuffle would take place.

N Munirathna, who won by over 57,000 votes in RR Nagar, is an aspirant for the ministerial berth and is eyeing powerful portfolios.

At present, there are seven berths vacant in the state council of ministers.
