Bommai to have 29 ministers in Cabinet, no deputy chief ministers


From Our Special Correspondent

Bengaluru, Aug 4: Within a week after taking over from former Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, Karnataka’s new Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has managed to secure the BJP High Command’s green signal for expanding his Cabinet with 29 members.

Unlike Yediyurappa, who had to wait for nearly two months to expand his cabinet, Bommai has been able to not only get the high command’s nod to expand his ministry. While Yediyurappa had three Deputy Chief Ministers, Bommai’s Cabinet will not have any Deputy Chief Ministers.

Kota Srinivas Poojary, MLC, from Byndoor and newcomer S Angara from Sullia in Dakshina Kannada have made it as ministers.

Speaking to media representatives in Vidhana Soundha ahead of the scheduled Cabinet expansion in Raj Bhavan at 2.15 pm, the Chief Minister said the ministry will have 29 members, which will include a woman.

He said the ministers will be a mix of experienced persons and newcomers to ensure that the government and the ruling party is geared to meet the challenges and also prepare for the ensuing electoral battles.

CM Bommai later met former chief minister B S Yediyurappa. 

Eight including DCM Savadi dropped

As many as eight former ministers in the Yediyurappa Cabinet – Jagadish Shettar, S Suresh Kumar, Aravind Limbavali, Laxman Savadi, C P Yogeshwar, R Shankar and Shrimanth Patil – have been dropped. This includes former Deputy Chief Minister Laxman Savadi is out of the cabinet.

There will be seven members from the dominant Vokkaliga community while his own Lingayat community will have eight. As many as seven persons from Other Backward Classes, three from Scheduled Castes and one from Scheduled Tribes will comprise the cabinet, the Chief Minister said.

Bommai thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP National President J P Nadda for swiftly clearing the list of ministers and sorting out all the ticklish issues pertaining to ministry formation.

With Karnataka’s total strength of 224 members in the Assembly and 75 members in the Council, the State can have a maximum of 34 members in the ministry.

1. K S Eshwarappa - Shivamogga

    At least something sensible not to waste money on Deputy Chief ministers. Normally this post is created to mentally satisfy the MLAs and absolutely not serving any purpose. Salary, facilities go waste from Govt Treasury. To this extent, CM has taken right decision.

    They have been paid enough money to defect. What more. Now they will not get even ticket to fight the next elections. They won't be able blackmail either as Deve Gowda has been bought for a sum which will cover the losses he has incurred in fighting elections.

    Bombbay (means puppet or doll in Kannada) Cabinet: Almost all Cong-I turncoats made ministers again. Most honest Suresh Kumar (Rajajinagar) replaced by most-corrupt & notorious MLA Munniratna! Illiterate MTB Nagaraj (richest MLA!) and cash counting machine repute Eshwarappa are back too! Shocking to note that sincere and dedicated party workers, multi-time MLA’s like Halady Srinivas Shetty, Ravi Subramanya, Yatnal and others have been ignored once again! Obviously, Mothu Bhai, Nadda and the state BJP has decided to hand over the reins to Cong-I in next elections
