CM Uddhav Reallocates Cabinet Berths, Strips Rebel Sena Ministers Off Portfolios
CM ਊਧਵ ਨੇ ਮੰਤਰੀ ਮੰਡਲ ਦੀ ਮੁੜ ਵੰਡ ਕੀਤੀ, ਬਾਗੀ ਸੈਨਾ ਦੇ ਮੰਤਰੀਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਵਿਭਾਗਾਂ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਹਰ ਕੀਤਾ
As the rift within Shiv Sena entered the second week, Maharashtra Chief Minister and the party’s chief, Uddhav Thackeray on Monday re-allocated the portfolios held by rebel MLAs, including Eknath Shinde and Uday Samant.
While Shinde was the Cabinet Minister of Urban Development and Public Works, Samant held the Higher and Technical Education portfolio in the Maharashtra government, led by CM Thackeray.
The Sena now has four cabinet ministers, including CM Uddhav Thackeray, Aaditya Thackeray, Anil Parab, and Subhash Desai. Barring Aaditya Thackeray, the rest three are MLCs.
In the tripartite Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government led by the Sena, the Uddhav Thackeray-led party had 10 Cabinet-rank ministers before the rebellion and four Ministers of State (MoS), including two from the Sena quota. All the four MoS have joined the rebel camp in Guwahati.
