Reshuffle in UP cabinet likely soon

Lucknow: A reshuffle in the Uttar Pradesh Cabinet headed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is likely as three ministers won the Lok Sabha elections while one was sacked, BJP sources said.

The exercise, the first since March 2017 when the Adityanath government was sworn in, is also likely to reward party's leaders for their hard work in ensuring a win in 62 of the 80 seats in the state, the sources said.

The three cabinet ministers who contested the Lok Sabha election and won are S P Singh Baghel from Agra, Rita Bahuguna Joshi from Allahabad and Satyadev Pachauri from Kanpur.

Disgruntled minister and SBSP leader O P Rajbhar was sacked by the chief minister for his outburst against his NDA partner, the BJP.
