Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa's cabinet was finally expanded on Thursday morning, with the addition of 10 new members. All 10 are former Congress and Janata Dal Secular MLAs who withdrew their support to the coalition government last July, causing its collapse. They then crossed over to the BJP and contested by-elections on BJP tickets - and most of them won. It has been a much delayed task for Mr Yediyurappa to meet national party leaders and come up with the final list of who would be included - and who would be left out. The chief minister had earlier acknowledged that the BJP was in power in the state because of these MLAs.
