Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today said the cabinet expansion could take place this week.
“It can take place this week,” he told reporters here.
As to the alliance with Shiv Sena, which is increasingly coming under strain, Fadnavis said the power sharing, allocation of departments, etc., had been decided when the Uddhav Thackeray-led party joined the government after the 2014 Assembly polls.
Fadnavis had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier this month, reportedly to discuss the expansion.
As per the power-sharing deal with Sena, it could get two more ministers of state posts.
