Scindia wants to give ministerial status to these politicians ministerial by getting them appointed to corporations.

The proposed cabinet expansion is being put off. Two other close aides of Scindia, Tulsi Silawat and Govind Singh Rajput, had to resign from the ministry because of delay in by-elections.

Apart from these two legislators, Scindia wants that his other supporters should be inducted into the cabinet. According to sources, he has some other work which he wants to discuss with the Chief Minister.
