Karnataka Cabinet: Is Yediyurappa under pressure to keep up his promise of making new comers ministers?
Karnataka BJP leader CT Ravi spoke to media clarifying the delay in Cabinet expansion. Earlier, chief minister BS Yediyurappa had said that those rebels from the Congress-JD(S), who joined the BJP and won the bypolls, would be made a minister. 12 of the 13 newcomers won the bypolls held in 15 constituencies on December 5. However, with senior BJP leaders from the national capital now busy with Jharkhand polls, Yediyurappa has deferred his visit to Delhi to discuss Karnataka's Cabinet expansion. This poses the question if Yediyurappa is under pressure. Watch Ravi's statement on Asianet Newsable.
