    The speculation had gained momentum during the 77-year-old leader's recent visit to New Delhi, during which he met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, several Union Ministers and BJP national president J P Nadda.

    According to news agency Press Trust of India, there were reports that Yediyurappa might be replaced after the Bihar assembly polls or after him presenting the budget in March 2021.

    The cabinet currently has 28 members, and six berths are still vacant.
