Seven BJP legislators, who were ministers in the previous B S Yediyurappa government, have not found a place in Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai's Cabinet.
They are Jagadish Shettar, S Suresh Kumar, Arvind Limbavali, Laxman Savadi, C P Yogeshwar, Shrimant Patil and R Shankar.
Shettar, a former chief minister who was the industries minister in the previous regime, had opted out of entering Bommai's Cabinet citing his 'seniority and moral grounds'.
Savadi was the deputy chief minister and transport minister previously. Kumar was minister for primary and secondary education.
