GHANDIGARH: Punjab Chief Minister, Charanjit Singh Channi is likely to induct a dozen new faces while four ministers who were a part of the Amarinder Singh-led- government are expected to be dropped from the cabinet.
With the list of ministers for the new cabinet finalised, Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi Saturday met Governor Banwarilal Purohit at Raj Bhavan around 12:30 pm, and after the meeting announced that Punjab cabinet expansion will be held tomorrow at Raj Bhawan, at 4:30 pm.
His meeting with the governor came just hours after he returned from Delhi, where he had a final round of cabinet formation talks with the party’s top command.
As per the sources, the new faces of the Punjab cabinet are likely to be Raj Kumar Verka, Sangat Singh Giljian, Punjab Congress’ working President Kuljeet Nagra, Gurkeerat Singh Kotli, General Secretary of Punjab PCC Pargat Singh, Rana Gurjit, and Raja Warring.
However, four legislators Sunder Shyam Arora, Sandhu Singh Dharamsot, Balbir Sidhu, Rana Gurmeet Sodhi, Gurpreet Singh Kangar – who were ministers in the Amarinder Singh-led cabinet are likely to be dropped, the sources said.
Channi was summoned to Delhi by the Congress high command on Friday to discuss the cabinet formation. The visit came within hours of him returning from the national capital.
“If few ministers are being dropped and new faces are being introduced, it is on the basis of their performance and for the effective functioning of the state government,” sources said.
