Dehradun, Mar 12 (PTI) Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat will expand his cabinet on Friday evening, official sources said here.

The oath-taking ceremony will take place at 5 pm on Friday at the Raj Bhawan here, the sources said.

It is still unclear as to how many new ministers will be inducted into the cabinet.

The Uttarakhand cabinet can have 12 ministers but two berths have remained vacant since the BJP government came to power in 2017. Another fell vacant after the demise of Finance Minister Prakash Pant in June 2019.
