Siddaramaiah rules out revamp of cabinet

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah today ruled out any major revamp of his cabinet and said three positions that are vacant will be filled up soon. 

"No major surgery. Neither major nor minor, there is  no surgery at all. Only vacant places will be filled up," he said when asked about "major surgery" of the cabinet.

Speaking to reporters in Kalaburgi, more than 600 km from here, he said, "There are  three posts that are vacant, they will be filled up."   

Siddaramaiah had recently said he will be soon be meeting the party high-command to discuss the cabinet expansion.   

Three posts are lying vacant following Home Minister G  Parameshwara's resignation on his continuation as Congress  party's state unit chief, Excise Minister H Y Meti'S exit   after being stung by an alleged sex CD scandal and the death of  Cooperation Minister Mahadev Prasad.

This would be Siddaramaiah government's last cabinet  expansion ahead of assembly elections due early next year.
Looking for retaining power, the Congress has announced that Siddaramaiah would be its face for the polls.
