West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee to reshuffle Cabinet today | Latest News India

This is the first reshuffle since the Trinamool Congress (TMC) returned to power for a third consecutive term in May last year.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will reshuffle her cabinet on Wednesday before leaving for New Delhi, where she is expected to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“There will be a small reshuffle on Wednesday. Four or five ministers will be assigned for the organization work. “We will induct five to six new faces into the cabinet,” Banerjee told reporters on Monday.

This is the first reshuffle since the Trinamool Congress (TMC) returned to power for a third consecutive term in May last year.

Two cabinet ministers, Subrata Mukherjee and Sadhan Pandey, were killed while Partha Chatterjee was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the multi-crore recruitment scam in government schools.

In connection with the scam, another minister Paresh Adhikari’s residence was raided by the central agencies. The Calcutta High Court also removed her daughter as a school teacher.

“If Chief Minister Chatterjee is dropped from the cabinet, junior education minister Paresh Adhikari may be dropped from the cabinet,” said a TMC leader, who did not want to be named.

Former union minister Babul Supriyo, who joined the TMC in September 2021, is expected to be inducted into the cabinet.
