Rejig CM’s domain, nothing unusual, says Asha Kumari
As Navjot Singh Sidhu raised his stakes in the battle of supremacy with Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, the Congress came out in defence of the latter saying there was nothing unusual about a CM reallocating portfolios.
Speaking to The Tribune, Congress incharge of Punjab affairs Asha Kumari said, "It is the CM's prerogative and remit to reallocate cabinet portfolios. That is what has been done. There is nothing unusual about it."
Sidhu has not taken charge of the power ministry, the department allocated to him in the recent Cabinet reshuffle. The miffed minister is in the Capital to meet the Congress high command to flag concerns. He is yet to get an audience considering Congress president Rahul Gandhi is in Wayanad on a thanksgiving tour and will return on Monday.
