Maharashtra cabinet expansion likely next week; Devendra Fadnavis expected to get Home portfolio

Mumbai, 8/7: Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde is likely to expand his cabinet next week by inducting at least 15 ministers and deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis is expected to keep the crucial Home portfolio, sources said on Sunday.



Top government sources said the civic polls in the state, delayed due to the OBC reservation issue being heard by the Supreme Court, are likely to be held in October after getting a clarification from the apex court.


Shinde and Fadnavis were sworn in as chief minister and deputy chief minister respectively on June 30 after the resignation of Uddhav Thackeray due to a rebellion in the Shiv Sena ranks.
