Many young and influential Ministers may be utilised to reorganise the party

Bhubaneswar:5/5/17; Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Thursday cleared the air by indicating that expansion-cum-reshuffle of cabinet could happen anytime. The decision gains prominence to counter the BJP that is eyeing to make rapid inroads in BJD bastions in state. Highly placed sources said that many young and influential Ministers may be utilised to reorganise the party at the grassroots level. These names could include some from young brigade like Pranab Prakash Das, Arun Sahoo, Sanjay Dasburma and veteran Debi Mishra.

It will be for the first time ever since the beginning of his fourth stint as CM in 2014 that Patnaik will be going for a major expansion of his Ministry. The reshuffle could axe several non-performing ministers-Kalahari Himirika, Jogendra Behera, Snehangini Churia, Sudam Marandi and Puspendra Singhdeo, sources said. Speaker Niranjan Pujari may also make a comeback in the ministry after a long time

Some new faces as well as experienced ones may get the nod in the Ministry reshuffle, which may happen next week after the return of Governor Dr. SC Jamir from vacation.
