J&K Cabinet reshuffle on cards, 2 PDP men may get cabinet berth


Srinagar, Sept 28: The J&K cabinet is likely to see a reshuffle in the coming days with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti set to induct two more Ministers into her Cabinet and elevate a Minister of state to the Cabinet rank.

In a report by ET,  few MLAs including former ministers have been making efforts to be inducted into the cabinet. The PDP-BJP government is also going for a reshuffle. At present the PDP has two Cabinet Ministers less than coalition partner BJP.

The report adds that the PDP has decided to re-induct former Minister Mohammad Altaf Bukhari into the cabinet.

After coming to power, Mehbooba had dropped four Ministers – two Cabinet Ministers, Mohammad Altaf Bukhari and Javid Mustafa Mir and two Ministers of State, Mohammad Ashraf Mir and Abdul Majeed Padroo who were a part of the team in the previous PDP-BJP government led by Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

According to the report the decision to re-induct Altaf Bukhari into the Cabinet has already been taken in a previous meeting of the PDP.

A south MLA may be inducted as Minister of state.

Similarly, sources said an MLA from south Kashmir who is also holding the portfolio of the Minister of state is likely to be elevated as the Cabinet Minister.
