The Prime Minister is chairing a meeting at his official residence, 7, Lok Kalyan Marg, in New Delhi on Sunday to discuss government formation in Uttar Pradesh, Goa and Uttarakhand. Union Home Minister Amit Shah is also present. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and party national general secretary (organization) BL Santosh are also in attendance.
While Yogi Adityanath is set to take oath as CM for a second term on March 25, there’s still no word yet on the composition of his cabinet. The BJP is now in the process of making last-minute tweaks to the list of cabinet and council of ministers.
The new state government in Uttarakhand is currently under suspense because of a lack of an announcement from the Central government about the CM face. This could mean that Pramod Sawant, who was elected as Chief Minister in Goa last year and later became the BJP’s candidate for Uttarkhand, will again lead the new government. However, it is still not clear if he will be announced as the CM face yet. The BJP has scheduled a meeting of its legislature in Dehradun on Monday evening where an announcement about Sawant’s name may be made.
