Karnataka CM’s cabinet expansion creates a difference of opinion

baig and shiva kumarChief Minister Siddaramaiah of Karnataka will induct D K Shiva Kumar and R Roshan Baig into his ministry. When congress had formed government in May the MLAs were denied berths on various grounds.

The idea of cabinet expansion is to strenghten CM’s ministry ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. This has created a difference of opinion in the Congress. Shiva Kumar who is going to be inducted faces cases of illegal mining, and this has created unhappiness.

The CM kept postponing the expansion. But pressure from the party and the aspirants was intense. On Tuesday, he was told to induct Shiva Kumar and Baig.
