PM Modi and Amit Shah will visit Karnataka from the beginning of next month. However, the CM has given a clear answer regarding the expansion of the state cabinet.
Hubballi: Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said on Saturday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah will make an official visit to Karnataka in early April. At the same time, he also made it clear that there will be no discussion on the much-awaited reshuffle in the cabinet during this period.
Committee constituted to keep an eye on the budget
The Chief Minister, who is holding charge of the Finance Ministry, said that a committee headed by the Chief Secretary is being constituted for the first time in the state to oversee the budget implementation.
Farmers' income will increase
Bommai said, Union Home and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah, who is working on reforms in the cooperative sector, will visit the state on April 1 to attend a big meeting related to 'Ksheer Abhivridhi Bank'. We are planning to start 'Ksheer Abhivridhi Bank', which aims to give a financial boost to the dairy sector so that the income of farmers can be increased and they can get financial support.
PM Modi will visit the state on April 5
Bommai told reporters here that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to visit the state on April 5, but it is only a tentative date and it has not been finalized completely.
There will be no discussion about the cabinet
Asked whether the much-awaited expansion of his cabinet would also be discussed during these visits, the chief minister said, "He is coming for government programs, there will be no discussion about the cabinet in Bengaluru." Whenever the leadership calls me, I will go to Delhi and discuss it.
Pressure on CM on the expansion of the cabinet
There is increasing pressure on the Chief Minister to quickly expand or reshuffle the cabinet after the assembly elections in five states of the country. Some legislators are advocating for a Gujarat-like reshuffle in the Karnataka cabinet soon to make room for new faces ahead of next year's assembly elections.
