Shivraj may be surprised by cabinet reshuffle in MP

Bhopal. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan can surprise everyone by making a big reshuffle in the cabinet. Sources said that around 10 existing ministers may be replaced with new faces and the third reshuffle and expansion of the cabinet is likely by the second week of December. Sources claimed that Chouhan has expressed dismay over the performance of several ministers in his cabinet and may be replaced with new faces.

A series of discussions have been held in the core committee meetings on this issue and a tentative list of ministers has been prepared. The final decision will be taken after getting consent from the Centre. It will be interesting to see whether Jyotiraditya’s loyalists will be changed or not. At present, there are 31 ministers in the state cabinet, while four posts are vacant. Sources said that at least four to five ministers of the Scindia camp could be changed. There are six cabinet ministers and three MoS from the Scindia faction in the cabinet. The extension and reshuffle was to take place in November, but it got delayed due to the Gujarat elections to be held in the first week of December.
