Bengaluru, Oct 30: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Friday hinted that he would expand his cabinet after the by-elections scheduled for R R Nagar and Sira Assembly Constituencies in the State.

Speaking to newsmen here, he said after the by-election, he would visit New Delhi and get party high command's green signal for the expansion.

Underlining that BJP will win both the seats, Mr Yediyurappa said that there will be a lot of changes in politics after the results are announced. The BJP candidates in both the constituencies will win by a huge margin, he added.

He said there was no need to campaign for the by-elections being the Chief Minister, however, former prime minister HD Deve Gowda, Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah and former state CM HD Kumaraswamy have gone to campaign. It would be unfair if I have not campaigned for BJP candidates.
