"There will be a cabinet expansion, but, after the monsoon session (of the state legislature)," Danve told PTI. In a departure from convention, the monsoon session of the Maharashtra legislature will be held in Nagpur instead of Mumbai from July 4 to July 20.
Nagpur, the second capital of Maharashtra, hosts the winter session of the state legislature every year while monsoon and budget sessions are held in Mumbai. When asked about possible inductions into the cabinet, Danve said the BJP's core committee will hold a meeting after the session and finalise the names.
"Nothing can be said about the names of the inductees at this juncture," he said. Senior BJP leader and Finance minister Sudhir Mungantiwar had recently said that names of new ministers would be finalised after holding talks with allies of the BJP.
