Mukul scotches reshuffle rumours

Mukul Sangma

Shillong, May 29: Meghalaya chief minister Mukul Sangma today asserted that thoughts of reshuffling his cabinet have not crossed his mind following the unsuccessful bid of the Congress for the Tura Lok Sabha seat and murmurs of political volatility.

Reports were doing the rounds of a possible reshuffle in the Sangma cabinet with names of deputy chief minister Rowell Lyngdoh, urban affairs minister Ampareen Lyngdoh and public works minister Sniawbhalang Dhar featuring as probables who would be facing the axe.

Besides, there were also reports that a portfolio reshuffle would take place after the Assembly session, which will commence from June 6.

However, the chief minister, who is still camping in New Delhi, said the idea of a reshuffle in his cabinet has not crossed his mind.

“The cabinet is intact, and the thought of reshuffle of either ministers or portfolios has not crossed my mind at all. I also feel that there was no need for any reshuffle,” he said.
