New Delhi, Jun 21: Uncertainty prevails over the much-talked about expansion-cum-reshuffle of the Union Council of Ministers. The exercise could now take place before the Monsoon session of Parliament beginning August one or after the session is over on September 8, highly-placed sources said.

Though Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi had a meeting last Sunday, the sources said that the consultations over the reshuffle were yet to take place.

As political circles were agog with reports of reshuffle, Union Minister and National Conference representative in the UPA government Farooq Abdullah said the Prime Minister probably wants to have new faces so that in the remaining three years of its term the government can "serve well".

Another Cabinet Minister Salman Khurshid, who belongs to Congress, said the government was working in a transparent manner and if there had been "hiccups" in matters of governance they were being attended to.
