Bengaluru, Aug 3:

Newly-appointed Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Monday met BJP chief J.P. Nadda to discuss cabinet expansion in the state.

Bommai reached the national capital on Sunday evening to discuss the issue with the party’s central leadership.

Sources said Union Minister Pralhad Joshi and state BJP chief Nalin Kumar Kateel were also present during the meeting held at Nadda’s residence late evening.

“Nadda and Bommai discussed about the ministers to be inducted and about the formation of the cabinet like number of ministers to be made or the number of Deputy Chief Ministers,” a party insider said.

Earlier in the day, Bommai also met BJP national General Secretary, Organisation, B.L. Santhosh and both the leaders also discussed the likely cabinet.

However, Bommai’s meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah could not take place and sources said that it will be held on Tuesday now.

“The list of likely ministers has been discussed between Bommai and Santhosh but finalised only after approval of Nadda and Shah,” a source said.

This is the second visit of Bommai to Delhi after being sworn in as the Chief Minister. He was elected leader of the BJP Legislative party after Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa resigned on July 26. In his first visit to Delhi on July 30, Bommai met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Nadda, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and others.

At present, there is no other minister in the Bommai government. Sources, meanwhile, said that ministerial aspirants have started lobbying to secure a berth in the new cabinet.

A party leader said that an initial round of discussion on Karnataka cabinet expansion took place between Bommai and senior party leaders on Sunday late night.

Before meeting Nadda, Bommai hinted that the cabinet expansion can take place most likely on August 4, if the list is finalised in the meeting with the BJP central leadership.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
