NEW DELHI: In what seems to be a repeat of the ‘Channi move’ in Punjab, Congress will have four cabinet ministers from the Dalit community in the Ashok Gehlot government in Rajasthan following the reshuffle that will be executed on Sunday.
The key feature of this expansion is that while a new cabinet minister from the SC community is being inducted, three Dalit ‘ministers of state’ are being promoted to the cabinet rank. Also, there are three tribal ministers and three women in the new additions. The presence of four Dalit cabinet ministers in the council of 30 is a big representation of the community, and appears in line with the ‘social justice push’ of the Congress leadership seen earlier in Punjab. It is also being said to be a first in the state.
