"The Haryana Cabinet will be expanded on October 29 in the afternoon and two ministers will be inducted," an official spokesman said tonight.
The vacancies in the Cabinet were created after OP Jain and Gopal Kanda had to resign after their names figured in two separate cases.
Congress sources said that a decision on the names, mostly CM-loyalists, has been taken.
Hisar MLA Savitri Jindal, mother of industrialist-MP Naveen Jindal is a probable candidate to be inducted into the Cabinet. Haryana Assembly Speaker Kuldeep Sharma's name is also being considered.
Jindal, who had remained a minister, had to make way to accommodate the Independents who let support and helped Hooda form the government after the Congress was reduced to minority with 40 seats in the 2009 Assembly polls.
