The expansion of the 19-month old Amarinder Singh cabinet has been on the cards for some time now -- more than six months.
Those who find their mention in the list doing rounds for a ministerial berth includes O P Soni, Raj Kumar Verka, Bharat Bhushan Ashu, Vijay Inder Singla, Kuljit Nagra, Sukhjinder Randhawa, Rakesh Pandey and Pargat Singh.
The 76-year-old Amarinder was sworn in as the state's 26th chief minister along with nine ministers.
Importantly, the chief minister can now only induct nine more ministers in his cabinet.
