Lucknow: BJP national vice-president and Uttar Pradesh in-charge Radha Mohan Singh on Sunday dismissed the possibility of a cabinet reshuffle in the Yogi Adityanath government.
His remarks came after a meeting with Governor Anandiben Patel here, which he described as a formality.
Asked about the possibility of a reshuffle in Uttar Pradesh, Singh told reporters “there is nothing as such”.
“After becoming the (party’s) in-charge of UP, I have not met the Governor. When she was the chief minister (of Gujarat), I was the Agriculture minister, I had an old association with Gujarat. Since, I could not meet her in the past six months, hence I met her today. This was a personal meeting and a formality,” Singh said.
He said the Uttar Pradesh government and the organisation are moving very strongly.
“The strongest organisation and most popular government are working in UP,” Singh said.
Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
