Mumbai, July 8 (ANI): The Maharashtra Cabinet is set for expansion today.

According to reports, eight to nine ministers are likely to be inducted in today's expansion.

The Devendra Fadnavis Government will fill up portfolios rendered vacant after the resignation of senior minister Eknath Khadse over corruption charges last month.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ally Shiv Sena may get two cabinet berths as the party expressed unhappiness over non-inclusion in the Union Cabinet expansion.

The expansion comes ahead of the Monsoon Session starting on July 18 and two days before Fadnavis begins his four-day Russia tour on July 10.

The state government, which has 19 Cabinet Ministers and 10 Ministers of State has 14 more berths to fill. (ANI)
