Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is set to expand his cabinet on June 27, officials said on Thursday.

The Parliamentary Board of the Samajwadi Party (SP) will meet on June 25 to deliberate on the potential candidates for the ministry.

At present the existing Cabinet has 24 ministers, 10 ministers of state with independent charge and 22 ministers of state.

This expansion in the cabinet would be the seventh expansion of the four-and-a-half-year-old SP government.

Last year, On 31 Oct, the last expansion had taken place. That time five cabinet ministers, eight ministers of state with independent charge and eight state ministers, were inducted by Yadav.
