Naveen hints at reshuffle in ministry




 Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today hinted at a possible reshuffle in the council of ministers after the budget session of the Assembly ends on April 7.

"We will look into that (ministry reshuffle) matter to see what can be done," Patnaik said after reaching here after a seven-day visit to the national capital. He was asked whether the council of ministers would be reshuffled after the panchayat elections where the ruling party's performance was not satisfactory in all districts.

Asked whether the possible reshuffle would take place after the budget session of the Assembly, Patnaik said, "Well, I just said that we will look into the matter and decide what is to be done."

The ruling BJD president's statement this time was significant as earlier on several occasions, Patnaik used to say that he was yet to think about the matter of reshuffle.

Replying to a query on review of the ruling party’s show in the recently held panchayat polls, Patnaik said, “We have already started the process.”

 






Editorial

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
