On March 16, when the Chief Minister, Amarinder Singh had sworn in, only a few ministers were selected in cabinet at that time. At this time the ministers have several departments. The Chief Minister had indicated that the Cabinet can expand in the first week of June.Amarinder Singh is keen to expand his ministry before the budget session, and soon he will be discussing with Congress national vice president Rahul Gandhi. Sources close to Captain said that the eyes of Congressmen are also on the formula adopted by the Captain about the legislators to be included at the expansion of the Cabinet.Congress circles said that though Captain Amarinder Singh has said that Rahul Gandhi will prepare the list of legislators to be included in the Cabinet, but the Congressmen believe that expansion of cabinet will be done with the advice of Amarinder Singh. The first time when the Cabinet was constituted, Amarinder Singh had included ministers on the basis of seniority. Captain himself has been advocating bringing the youth forward. Now in the Cabinet expansion, some youths can be accommodated while some young faces are expected to be given a position while appointing parliamentary secretaries. It is also said that the scale of seniority is not expected to be dissolved at the time of Cabinet expansion. The race has started for the ministers who have become new cabinet minister. Captain will also keep in mind his loyalty while selecting legislators for the new post.
