Assam Cabinet likely to be Reshuffled, Many Portfolios to Change Hands
GUWAHATI: The BJP-led Assam government is likely to reshuffle its cabinet with new faces set to be inducted against existing vacancies.
Sources close to G Plus said that Chakradhar Gogoi from Moran or Jogen Mohan from Mahmora could be in the list of the new ministers. Narayan Deka, Barkhetri MLA, is also another likely new face.
If speculations are to be believed, Sanjoy Kishan, MLA from Tinsukia, may be the new state labour minister.
With new ministers set to be inducted, a major reshuffle of the Sarbananda Sonowal-led state government might see some existing ministers lose their portfolios. Such ministers are likely to include Siddhartha Bhattacharya and Naba Doley among others.
It is to be mentioned that Assam BJP’s state president, Ranjeet Dass, whose term as a president expired on December 16 last, will be reappointed to head the party on January 18.
