Jaipur: Amidst news of a Cabinet rejig in Rajasthan, Congress in-charge for the state, general secretary Ajai Maken, has hinted that some ministers may be dropped. Those who will not be a part of the new Cabinet will get a chance to work in the organization. The news comes after a two-day long one-to-one feedback exercise with the MLAs of the party.
"There are some ministers who have come forward and said to me that they are ready to work in the organization to strengthen the party and I am very thankful to them," said Maken while talking to media before leaving to Delhi while refusing to specify the number of such ministers.
When he was questioned about when will he submit his report to high command and reshuffle will take place Maken replied with "I am Delhi".
Maken, who was in Jaipur for the last three days, held one-to-one meetings with 115 MLAs of the party and other party leaders who are supporting the government. He also met with CM Ashok Gehlot and speaker CP Joshi in Jaipur and Sachin Pilot in Delhi.
The whole exercise was carried out to get feedback on the performance of the ministers and development schemes of the government. If reports are to be believed, not all ministers were given a positive feedback. The health minister Raghu Sharma denied any such feedback and said that all ministers are doing good work. "The names that have appeared in media are planted and if they are happy with the headlines let them be," he added.
Sources in the party said that feedback of MLAs and Maken's statement ia an indication that reshuffle may take place soon and around six ministers of total 21 may be dropped in the reshuffle and 10 new ministers may be inducted. "This feedback will also affect the number of ministers to be inducted in the cabinet from different factions as a clear picture of strength of factions has emerged now," said an MLA.
